The Supreme Court today issued an Interim Order preventing the arrest of former Inspector General Jayantha Wickramaratne by the CID, over the ongoing Magisterial Inquiry into the killing of former Sunday Leader Editor late Lasantha Wickramatunge.

A Fundamental Rights (FR) petition had been filed in Court on behalf of the former IGP to prevent the imminent arrest of him by the CID.

The Petitioner cited Director of the CID, SSP Shani Abeysekara, OIC Nishantha Silva and Attorney General as respondents in the FR petition.

The Bench comprising Justice Eva Wanasundara, Justice Priyantha Jayawardena and Justice L.T.B. Dehideniya had issued the Interim Order preventing the arrest of former IGP until a final determination is made over the Fundamental Rights petition filed in court. (Shehan Chamika Silva)

    Why do they even bother to arrest these big guys. They never get sent to jail. Attempting is a waste of time and money.

    The law in our country is utterly currupt. Illegocal and absurd. This country is a goner with these judges and the entire legislation

    Wow, what a wonderful judiciary. Would a person who stole a chicken also be allowed the same benefits. Alas no. In that instance the thief will be sentenced to 2 years of imprisonment whereas even if the chicken is allowed to live it will not live 2 years.

    Even the judiciary is taking advantage of Yahapalanya. They should realize the previous experience as to what happened to then C J.
