A collective of media and civil organizations are currently carrying out a protest campaign outside the Colombo District Court where a case regarding the film 'Usawiya Nihandai' will be taken up for hearing today.
The protesters are demanding the restraining order issued on the film being screened be removed.
Colombo District Court Judge M. U. Gunawardena on February 05 issued an order restraining the film 'Usawiya Nihandai' being screened till today after taking into consideration the petition filed by former Magistrate Lenin Ratnayake stating that the film directed by Prasanna Vithanage was based on a false story relating to him and that it defamed the judiciary.

This is nothing but exceeding the limits of freedom or display of foolishness. This is not the way of challenging a court order. Soon people will start protesting against a verdict of death sentence.

These NGOs will only do a service to themselves if they stop being silly. This is not a political decision but a court order. If you care so much (seriously??), present your evidence when the case is heard.
