Following a petition filed by the UNP members the appeal court issued the restraining order on UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe and party Secretary Tissa Attanayake effective till the 20th of this month.

The petitions were filed by the UNP members from Galen Binduruwewa, Rambewa, Tirapane, Kekirewa, Kahatagasdigiliya and Ibalogama.
