Court issues restraining order on SAITM protesters

The Fort Magistrate’s Court yesterday issued a restraining order on the Inter-University Student Bala Mandalaya, Medical Students’ Action Committee and the University Bhikku Mandalaya to ensure that they conducted yesterday’s planned anti-SAITM demonstration and protest in Colombo Fort in a peaceful manner subject to the following restrictions.

The restrictions are that they should not cause obstruction, danger or inconvenience to people and their vehicles or hold a march or try to enter the Presidential Secretariat by force in a manner that would breach the peace.

The Magistrate’s Court issued this order when Fort Police reported that they had received information about an anti-SAITM protest campaign planned by the three organizations in the Fort area and sought a restraining order yesterday.
