Court issues order against joint opposition march

The Kandy Magistrate Court issued an injunction order against the protest march of the 'Joit Opposition' from being launched from the city limits.

This order was given at the request of the police, who informed the courts that there could be public disturbance since a UNP membership drive program was also scheduled to be held in Kandy tomorrow.

The Joint Opposition had planned to launch the march after religious observances at the Dalada Maligawa.

The Magistrate said that there will be no objection on the 'Joint Opposition' conducting religious observances at the Maligawa.
However, the Joint Opposition will now be forced to launch the march outside the city limits.

Meanwhile, the UNP was also ordered to conduct their program after 2.00 p.m.

Furthermore, the Mawanella Magistrate's Court also issued an injunction order barring the march from entering the town.
