Fr. Jeewantha Peiris today filed a Fundamental Rights petition in Supreme Court seeking an order preventing police and tri-forces from arresting him regarding Galle Face protest incidents.
The petitioner states he joined the “GotaGoGama” protest from about April 09, 2022 and thereafter he became an active participant in the protest in order to bring justice to the people who were made to suffer by the Government led by former President Gotabaya Rajapaksa.
The petitioner states after the “GotaGoGama” was destroyed by armed forces, he came to know from the evening television news broadcasts of July 25 that the police have obtained a travel ban against him. (Lakmal Sooriyagoda)
