Aug 13, Colombo: A Sri Lankan court has issued six injunctions against the leaders of Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) preventing the party from taking disciplinary actions against six members.

Colombo District Court has issued six injunctions against Leader of UNP Ranil Wickremasinghe, General Secretary Tissa Attanayake and the disciplinary committee preventing them holding the disciplinary probes and removing six UNP members.

Colombo Chief District Judge Sujatha Alahapperuma issued the injunctions considering the cases filed by the six UNP members of local governments who cited that they were subjected to injustice by the disciplinary probes against them.

The six injunctions are effective until August 22.

The respondents were ordered to show cause not to issue injunctions before the court on August 22.

The plaintiffs are members of Minuwangoda, Rattota, Meerigama and Wariyapola Pradeshiya Sabhas.
