The Supreme Court issued an order on Aug 20th 2007 restraining the Consumer Affairs Authority from interfering in Dialog TV proceedings and also preventing them from suing the company.
In addition the Supreme Court will take up the FR petition filed by Dialog TV against the CAA. The Chief Justice Sarath N. Silva is said to have explained that allowing the CAA to proceed would have meant an injustice to over 30,000 subscribers of Dialog TV.
It looks like the CAA will have to be called the HAA (Henchmen Affairs Authority). So the CAA failed to uphold the rights of the consumers when this DTH company was sealed last year and now all of us know that they did not come forward since they were also influenced by the henchmen. Now since the tactic of using the CAA is failing, we wonder whether the CMC is the next state institution that will file action against Dialog TV on behalf of these henchmen.
