Mullaitivu District Judge and Magistrate T. Saravanarajah has tendered his resignation to the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) due to alleged threats to his life.

In a letter to the JSC Secretary, Magistrate T. Saravanarajah stated that he decided to resign from his posts due to threats to his life and a lot of stress.


According to the letter, he has tendered his resignation from the posts of district judge, magistrate, family court judge, primary court judge, small claims court judge, and juvenile court judge.


However, it was reported that the threats and pressure stem principally from his involvement in the contentious Kurunthimalai archaeological site cases.
