Wimal’s road blockade case fixed for trial

The case against National Freedom Front Leader (NFF) Wimal Weerawansa and five other party activists for allegedly leading a protest which blocked the main roads at Bauddhaloka Mawatha, causing disturbance to the people and the normal flow of traffic, were fixed for trial by Colombo Chief Magistrate Lanka Jayarathne.

The NFF staged the protest march against the visiting United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein On February 6, 2016. On the last occasion, the Cinnamon Gardens Police submitted an amended charge sheet on the six suspects before the Magistrate. The Police said that they were seeking to find any information regarding the seventh suspect. The six suspects are NFF leader and Colombo District MP Wimal Weerawansa, Jayantha Samaraweera, Weerakumara Dissanayake, Piyasiri Wijenayake, Roger Seneviratne and Mohammed Muzammil.

The seventh accused Lalith Chaminda Jayalal did not appear before the Court yesterday.
