Court bans protesters from entering several roads in Colombo

May 27, 2022 2:05:06 PM - colombogazette.com

A court order has been obtained preventing protesters from entering several roads in Colombo tomorrow (Saturday).

The Fort Police obtained the court order with a number of protests set to take place in Colombo tomorrow to mark 50 days since the Galle Face protest.

The court has banned protesters from entering York Street and Bank Street, which lead to the President’s House.

Attempts earlier by protesters to enter those roads led to the Police using tear gas and water cannons to disperse them.

The court order issued on the protests tomorrow also bans them from forcibly entering or damaging public institutions and official residences in the Colombo Fort police division, or obstructing the duties of Police officers in the area. (Colombo Gazette)
