Hi Lydia,

 

I found a little bit on this website.

 

https://archive.org/stream/cu31924084199763/cu31924084199763_djvu.txt If you do control F and search for Sura and keep clicking on “next”, you’ll find it.  I am sorry that it is not very pretty, but on the basis that anything is better than nothing, I thought it might help…

 

I also found this http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-appeal-court-reports-1903-1907-ceylon-high-court-of-appeal/1027276457?ean=2940028817496 but apparently it is only available in the United States, which doesn’t help either of us very much.  There are also paid for versions available.  They might also exist on other platforms, but I would have preferred to check that it is actually there from a freebie version first.

 

Apart from that there is also http://www.amazon.com/The-appeal-court-reports-1903-1907/dp/1176516582  which might be in a university library somewhere.

 

Hope it helps.  I have fond memories of holidays in Sri Lanka, so am always interested in anything that comes up which relates  to the island.

 

Best wishes,

 

Hazel

Ps With any luck, someone else will have a pristine copy that they will be able to send you.  Fingers crossed!  J

Subject: [Int-Law] Sri Lankan Appeal Court case needed

 

** Apologies for cross-posting **

 

Dear Int-Lawers

 

Trust you are well. I’ve been asked to get a copy of the following case:

 

Sura Vs. Fernando (1 ACR 95)

 

It is referred to in another Sri Lankan case Hewa Alankarage Rosalin Hami v E. Hewage Hami, which I found at http://www.supremecourt.lk/images/documents/SC_Appeal.15.2008FINALon03.12.2010.pdf

 

It seems no library in South Africa has this case series, which I suspect is the Appeal Court Cases (Sri Lanka) as per the Cardiff Index to Legal Abbreviations, based on the referral I found in the Sri Lankan case on the Internet. Cardiff gives these options:

 

Preferred Abbreviation

Alternate Abbreviations

Title

Jurisdiction

ACR

Australian Contract Law Reporter

Australia

-

A.C.R.

American Criminal Reports (Hawley)

United States

-

A.C.R.

Appeal Court Reports (Balasingham)

Sri Lanka

ACR

A Crim R ; A.C.R. ; A.Crim.R.

Australian Criminal Reports

Australia

ANZ ConvR

A.C.R. ; ACR

Australian and New Zealand Conveyancing Reports

Australia and New Zealand

 

I also checked WorldLII but couldn’t find this case, when redirected to CommonLII.

 

If anyone can help with a copy of this case, I’d be most grateful. Many thanks in advance for any assistance given.

Cheers

Lydia
