FR petitions challenging Emergency Regulations withdrawn

The Fundamental Rights petitions filed by civil society activists seeking an Interim Order staying the operation of the Regulation 19 and 58 of the Emergency Regulation No. 1 of 2019 were withdrawn by petitioners before Supreme Court today.

Senior Counsel Viran Corea appearing for the petitioners moved Supreme Court to withdraw the petitions citing that the Emergency Regulations is not currently operating.

Accordingly, Supreme Court three-judge-bench headed by Justice Buwaneka Aluwihare allowed petitioners to withdraw their petitions.
