Oct 05, Colombo: A Sri Lankan court today issued a restraining order preventing protests by MPs of Joint Opposition planned to be held tomorrow in Hambantota.

Following a request by the Hambantota police, Hambantota Magistrate Manjula Karunaratne issued an injunction today restricting the MPs Namal Rajapaksa and D.V. Upul entering the vicinity of the Hambantota Port, Indian Consulate and the roads leading to the Hambantota Port tomorrow.

The Magistrate also ordered not to block the roads and inconvenience the public.

The Magistrate issued the order considering a request made to the court ASP Sanath Amarasinghe and the Hambantota Police OIC, Priyantha Abeysinghe.

The Joint Opposition plans to hold a protest march in Hambantota on Friday, October 06 to protest against the government signing agreements with foreign countries for the development of the Hambantota Port and Mattala Airport. The JO protests the handing over of Hambantota Port to China and the alleged sale of Mahinda Rajapaksa International Airport in Mattala to India.

Joint Opposition MP Dullas Alahapperuma said the JO will launch a peoples' protest to protest the government's "sinister moves to sell national assets to foreigners for a song."
