AG gives four weeks to file objections for the Mirihana Protesters….

The Attorney General has four weeks to file objections to the Fundamental Rights (FR) petitions that two protesters who participated in last year’s demonstrations near the home of former President Gotabaya Rajapaksa in Mirihana filed with the Supreme Court today (09).


The protesters who were detained by the police during demonstrations outside the former President’s home in March 2022 filed the petition in an effort to obtain a court ruling stating that their fundamental rights had been violated.


Senior State Counsel Shaminda Wickrema appeared on behalf of the Attorney General and informed the court that initial objections will be filed claiming that the pertinent petitions cannot be maintained.
