Disabled soldiers restrained by court

The Colombo Fort Magistrate Ranga Dissanayake yesterday issued an interim order preventing the protesting disabled soldiers from entering the Lotus Road in Fort, Colombo, and the vicinity of the President’s Office and the Prime Minister’s Office.

According to the court order given by the Magistrate, the protestors would be barred from blocking the entry routes to the Presidential Secretariat, Defence Ministry, Galle Road, Temple Trees, Lotus Road, Prime Minister’s office and the Prime Minister’s Secretariat.

The Magistrate made this order after considering a request made by Deputy Inspector General Ajith Rohana and Colombo Central SP Nishantha Soysa.

DIG Ajith Rohana informed court that public disturbances may occur due to the protest.

However, the Fort Magistrate Ranga Dissanayake has observed that the protesters have the right to protest without any public pressure.

The Magistrate instructed the police to arrest the persons or groups who violate the court order. The Magistrate also ordered the police to display the restraining order for public awareness.
