Wed, Aug 13, 2014, 11:41 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Aug 13, Colombo: A Sri Lankan court yesterday issued restraining orders on three religious organizations preventing them from staging any protests and demonstrations in the Sri Lankan capital today.

The Colombo Magistrate's Court yesterday issued restraining orders on the Thowheed Jamath, Bodu Bala Sena and Sihala Ravaya organizations preventing them from holding demonstrations and protests in Colombo and the Colombo Fort area today, police said.

"The court order was issued by the Colombo Magistrate's Court following information given by the Colombo Fort police that demonstrations were planned for today by the Thowheed Jamath, Bodu Bala Sena and Sihala Ravaya organisations," Police media spokesman SSP Ajith Rohana told media following the order issued by the Colombo Fort Magistrate.

"Copies of the court order would be handed over to those organizations," the spokesman added.

SSP Ajith Rohana clarified that the order would only apply to those three organizations and not to the several trade unions that are to strike work today.
