leave a comment »

The Puttalam Magistrate today issued a restraining order on a Presidential election rally organized by the opposition common candidate General Sarath Fonseka which was scheduled to be held in Puttalam tomorrow.

The restraining order was issued after a motion was brought forward by the Puttalam police stating that the funeral of the deceased supporter of the UPFA, Saman Kumara who was killed on the 16th was being held on the same day.

The motion further stated that there might be unrest if the funeral procession clashes with the supporters of General Fonseka at the rally. Although objections were raised by the respondents they were dismissed by the Magistrate. The organizers were advised to hold the meeting on any day before the 23rd of this month.
