AG to file written objections against suspending arrest of Kurunegala Mayor, four others

The Attorney General (AG) informed the Court of Appeal on Monday (14) that objections will be filed against the prohibition order of the Court of Appeal suspending the arrest of the five suspects including Kurunegala Mayor Thushara Sanjeewa Vitharana.

They were ordered to be arrested over the demolition of King Buwenekabahu‘s Royal Court in Kurunegala by the Kurunegala Municipal Council (MC) recently.

The Court of Appeal had barred the arrest of the six suspects with its interim prohibition order on August 25.

The Senior Advocate of the Government who appeared for the AG informed the AG’s decision to court on September 14.

The AG was then ordered by the panel of judges to file written objections on November 12. The petition will be taken up for trial on that day. Kurunegala Chief Magistrate Sampath Hewawasam had issued warrants to arrest the suspects on August 7.
