The Bar Association of Sri Lanka requests President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa to immediately withdraw the emergency regulations that came into effect from midnight yesterday.

The union said in a statement that emergency laws should not be used to arrest or detain anti-government protesters. The statement added that the fundamental rights of the people, freedom of speech and freedom of assembly, should not be compromised in any way.

Saliya Peiris, President’s Counsel and President of the Bar Association of Sri Lanka, further stated that the use of emergency regulations to control the situation in the country is not an option but a matter of public opinion.
