The Colombo Chief Magistrate Court has denied the Police’s request to issue an order barring the protest scheduled to be held tomorrow (09) in Colombo.
The request was made by the Kurunduwatta Police before Colombo Chief Magistrate Nandana Amarasinghe.
The Chief Magistrate emphasised that the Right to peaceful protest cannot be interfered with, adding that however, any breach of peace or damage to property during the protests allows the Police to use power to take necessary measures.
Since April 09, the 09th of every month was evident of major protests in Colombo and both Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Mahinda Rajapaksa had to leave their titles as the President and the Prime Minister due to the power of the people.
Accordingly, another protest of that capacity is set to be held tomorrow as well, according to reports.
