CA suspends magisterial inquiry against interdicted High Court Judge Gihan Pilapitiya

The Court of Appeal today issued an interim order suspending the magisterial inquiry against interdicted High Court Judge Gihan Pilapitiya at Nugegoda Magistrate's Court in connection with controversial telephone conversations with former Deputy Minister Ranjan Ramanayake.

Court of Appeal Justice (President) A.H.M.D. Nawaz and Justice Sobhitha Rajakaruna made this order pursuant to a writ petition filed by former High Court Judge Gihan Pilapitiya.

The Court of Appeal had earlier issued an order directing police not to arrest interdicted High Court Judge without an order issued by a competent Court.

Meanwhile, the Court of Appeal today issued notices on the respondents in the petition to appear in court on June 29.

Former High Court Judge is also seeking an order in the nature of writ of certiorari quashing the direction of the Attorney General (2nd Respondent) to the Acting IGP (1st Respondent) to cause the arrest the Petitioner.
