CHENNAI: Underlining its demand to state government for appointing a counsel to represent the Indian fishermen who have been awarded capital punishment by a Sri Lankan court, the Madras High Court Advocate Association(MHAA), on Monday, boycotted the court proceedings.

Around afternoon a group of lawyers went around the premises, raising slogans against the Sri Lankan government. The group entered the first bench court where chief justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul was present. They again raised slogans inside the court. The annoyed chief justice asked the group to leave the court. Later he condemned the act of disrupting court as not befitting of lawyers," said a high court source.

On Friday (MHAA) passed a resolution for boycotting the court. It said false cases had been regularly foisted against the Indian Fishermen who were fishing in the Indian waters. This was done to take vengeance against the Tamils.

R C Paul Kanagaraj, president of MHAA, said the forum had called upon the TN government to take a cue from the Centre, and appoint an advocate to defend them. "We will constitute a five-member special team to render legal assistance to them," said Kanagaraj.
