Colombo Additional Magistrate Ms. Praharsha Ranasinghe today said that Police could arrest the former Inter-University Convener and presently a lawyer, Udul Premaratne, if he had behaved provocatively during the protest at Wanathamulla, against the arrest of some suspects few days ago.
The magistrate made this observation following a request made by the Borella Police to the Magistrate to issue notice on Udul Premaratne to appear before court to face charges.
The Magistrate also ordered several media organizations to provide video clips of the visuals of the protest that took place at Wanathamulla on April 22 following the arrest of 33 persons of ‘T 20 Watte’, in order to identify the persons involved in the protest. The case was postponed to July 27. (Farook Thajudeen)
