The Democratic National Alliance (DNA) is to hold a massive protest in Fort, Colombo at 4 p.m. today (14) against the arrest of its members including two parliamentarians in Galle on Thursday (12).

The main constituent partner of the DNA, the JVP says that it has already informed its membership island wide to attend the protest in Colombo.

“We will not stop until justice prevails,” a JVP spokesperson told The Sunday Leader.

JVP Secretary Tilvin Silva meanwhile said the party would file a fundamental rights petition against the police for the arrest of its party members.

DNA parliamentarians Vijitha Herath, Ajith Kumara, Provincial Councilor Nalin Hewage and 10 other DNA members were arrested on Thursday after they participated in a protest calling for the release of General Sarath Fonseka in Galle.

The arrested DNA members are to be presented in court on Monday (16).
