TNA MP MA Sumanthiran says there is nothing called a Police Curfew in terms of the law.
“This is an unlawful announcement to discourage people to gather tomorrow to protest against the government.”
Meanwhile, Senior lawyer Viran Cores also said that there’s no law in Sri Lanka that provides for or allows imposition of anything called a “police curfew”.
“Any action to prohibit the freedom of movement and thereby the right to peaceful protest on such a non-existent basis is illegal and a denial of citizens’ fundamental rights” he said. (NewsWire)
