Former JVP MP Namal Karunaratne today filed a writ petition in the Court of Appeal seeking an order to arrest Kurunegala Mayor for allegedly demolishing an ancient Kings Assembly Hall in Kurunegala.

The petitioner has cited Acting IGP C.D. Wickramaratne, Kurunegala HQI Kapila Adikari, Director General of Archaeology Prof. Senarath Dissanayake, the Mayor of Kurunegala Municipal Council Thushara Sanjeewa, Kurunegala Municipal Council and the Attorney General as respondents.

The petitioner stated the concerned ancient King’s Court (Raja Sabhawa) said to have been built by King Buvanekabahu II who reigned Kurunegala Kingdom during the period from 1293-1302.

The petitioner alleged that Kurunegala Mayor Thushara Sanjeewa had demolished a part of the said King’s Court on July 14.

He further alleged that police have failed to take necessary legal action against the persons who are responsible for the demolition even after a written complaint had been lodged with the Kurunegala Police in this regard.

    It's high time people in power stop treating our national heritage and protected lands like their own personal property!

    People who filed nonsense petitions and waste the times of courts should be punished
