Colombo (LNW): The Colombo Magistrate Court today (13) issued a warrant for the arrest of Leader of the Jathika Nidahas Peramuna, MP Wimal Weerawansa, in connection with a protest ‘oppressing the public’ held in 2016.
This was when the case was taken up before Colombo Chief Magistrate Prasanna Alwis today (13).
Weerawansa and six others are accused of holding a protest oppressing the public during an official visit of a former Human Rights Commissioner of the United Nations in 2016.
The warrant to arrest the MP was issued as Weerawansa failed to appear before the Court today.
