Interdicted Judge Gihan Pilapitiya Files Writ Application Seeking Interim Injunction Preventing His Arrest

February 19, 2020

Interdicted High Court Judge Gihan Pilapitiya has filed a writ application before the Court of Appeal seeking an interim injunction order preventing his arrest.

The Attorney General has instructed the Acting IGP twice to obtain a warrant to arrest Pilapitiya.

However, the instruction has sparked outrage among a section of lawyers who went on to stage a protest in Colombo.

Pilapitiya is involved in the call recording controversy linked to UNP MP Ranjan Ramanayake.
