10 UPFA MPs noticed by Colombo Magistrate

Gotabhaya Rajapaksa

The Colombo Magistrate’s Court today issued notice on 27 persons including 10 UPFA Parliamentarians to appear before the court on May 8 on contempt of court charges, after they violated a court order and staged a protest opposite the bribery commission.

Prior to the protest, the court issued an order banning protests in front of the Bribery Commission. Despite the court, they protested in support of former Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa who was present at the Bribery Commission yesterday to give a statement.
