Court Of Appeal Issues Interim Order Not To Arrest Suspended HC Judge Gihan Pilapitiya Without Magistrate's Court Order

February 20, 2020

The Court of Appeal issued an interim order not to arrest interdicted High Court judge Gihan Pilapitiya without a Magistrate's Court order.

Pilapitiya 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.
