The Gangodawila Magistrate’s court has issued notice on Opposition and UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe to appear before court on May 23 to respond to a petition filed against him.
UNP Souther Provincial Councilor and Attorney Maithri Gunaratne today filed a petition challenging the appointment of parliamentarian Ravi Karunanayake to the post of National Organizer of the UNP at the Gangodawila Magistrate’s Court.
The petition sought an enjoining order against the appointment, claiming it was in violation of the party Constitution.
The Magistrate had said that defendants needed to be given an opportunity to respond before a decision is made on issuing an enjoining order.
Wickremesinghe and the rest of the defendants have been issued notice to appear in court on May 23 to respond to the petition.
