Court Orders Arrest Of LankaeNews Editor

Apr 22, 2011 12:16:39 PM - thesundayleader.lk

The Pugoda Magistrate’s Court has ordered the police to arrest the editor of a private news website for publishing a false report on an issue currently pending in court.

Pugoda Magistrate Aravinda Perera has issued a directive to the police to arrest the Editor of LankaeNews website and produce him before court.

The Magistrate had made the order after considering a story published in the website where it has been alleged that the Pugoda Magistrate has failed to order the release of two suspects in custody in contrary to the Attorney General’s advice.

The Magistrate had also asked the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) to conduct an inquiry into the matter and present a report to courts.
