Thirty-seven manpower workers who were protesting outside the Ministry of Power and Renewable Energy were arrested for violating court orders last night, police said.

The arrests were carried out by police officers attached to the Kollupitiya, Borella, Kirulapone, Wellawatte, Narahenpita, Bambalapitiya and Cinnamon Gardens police stations.

Police said the Fort Magistrate had issued a restraining order directing the protest not be held outside the ministry.

The road leading to Temple Trees was closed for several hours due to the protest march organised by the manpower workers. The arrested workers were produced before the Fort Magistrate’s court today.
