The Colombo Chief Magistrate’s Court today rejected a request made by the Cinnamon Gardens Police for a restraining order on the joint opposition rally from entering the roads adjacent to the President’s official residence in Colombo.

Meanwhile, another request by the Welikada Police to prevent the rally from entering its jurisdiction was rejected by the Colombo Additional Magistrate.  

The Fort Magistrate’s Court also rejected a request made by the Kollupitiya Police for a restraining order on the Joint Opposition protest rally from entering into Kollupitiya Police division.

The anti-government ‘Janabalaya Kolambata’ protest organised by the JO is expected to be held in Colombo tomorrow.

    on what basis Courts rejects these bans when such walks and protests inconveniences every person on the road? Can anybody disrupt the life of every ordinary citizen just to capture power?

    the purpose of this protest is topple the government. As per the penal code of sri lanka toppling government is a crime and police has already been given power to stop such acts by constitution. therefore seeking a restrain order is not accepted. that was the legal basis of this decision. I heard it on news

    I do not support the university students protests. The highlight is Court could provide restraining order on student protests under the public disturbance reasoning. However , for JO protest it's a different tone.Law applied equally?

    Protesting is right of a democratic state.. Of course it should not interfere with day to day life.. So the court has made the correct decision..

    The maximum JO can bring is MR's 58 lakhs and it is not the majority - why worry?

    People's minds have changed a lot since 2015.

    these courts kept quiet when the MR clan passed a rule that no protests can be held from Kollupitiya junction to Galle Face roundabout
