Court rejects a Police request to issue an enjoining order against the IUSF march

The Colombo Magistrate’s Court yesterday rejected a request by the Police to issue an enjoining order against the march to be held by the Inter-University Students Federation (IUSF) today (24).

The Police had said that the march will block Galle Face Roundabout, NSA Roundabout, Galle Road, Janadhipathi Mawatha, Ceramic Junction, York Road, GOH Junction, Bank Road, Lotus Mawatha, and will cause severe public distress as well as damage to public property. The police had submitted a report to the court requesting that an enjoining order be issued against 16 students, including the leaders of the student union.

Refusing to issue such an order, the Additional Magistrate had stated that the police have the power to execute in the event of an illegal act under the Police Ordinance.

However, sources said that as of this morning, the police had set up heavy roadblocks in the area and blocked the roads.
