FSP protesters arrested for violating laws

The police yesterday arrested 42 activists who attempted to stage a protest in Kollupitiya and at Town Hall against the killing of African-American George Floyd, which has led to widespread protests in the US and several other countries.

The police had earlier obtained an injunction from the Colombo Fort Magistrate’s Court preventing the protest organized by the Frontline Socialist Party.

According to police 23 protesters had been arrested in Kollupitiya close to the US embassy and 19 others near the Town Hall. Police said the suspects had been arrested for both violating the court order and quarantine laws.
