Jerome Fernando Files Fundamental Rights Petition Seeking Order to Prevent Police Arrest

Pastor Jerome Fernando has submitted a Fundamental Rights petition to the Supreme Court, requesting an order to prevent his potential arrest by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID). The pastor, who is presently in Singapore, has been informed by the police that he will be apprehended upon his return to Sri Lanka.

This development comes in the wake of numerous complaints filed against Pastor Fernando, accusing him of making inflammatory statements that have the potential to incite religious disharmony within the country. The authorities have taken these complaints seriously and have indicated their intention to take legal action against him.

In response to the growing controversy surrounding his statements, Pastor Jerome Fernando has released a second apology, attempting to address the concerns raised by the public.
