Case against Wimal and others fixed for Oct. 26

A case filed against former Minister Wimal Weerawansa and five other party activists for allegedly providing leadership to a protest which blocks the main roads at Bauddhaloka Mawatha, causing disturbance to the people and the normal flow of traffic was today fixed for October 26 by Colombo Chief Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne.

On February 6, 2016, the National Freedom Front (NFF) staged a protest against the visit of United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein.

Six persons; including former MP Wimal Weerawansa, Jayantha Samaraweera, Weerakumara Dissanayake, Piyasiri Wijenayake, Roger Seneviratne, and Mohammed Muzammil; are the suspects in this case. The Cinnamon Gardens Police had informed court that the suspects had failed to obtain prior permission from police to hold their march. They further alleged that the organisers had also used loudspeakers without a valid licence.
