Interim injunction on Kotte Mayor

An interim injunction has been issued on the Mayor of Kotte Janaka Ranawake against making any defamatory statements against the Kotte Deputy Mayor Madura Vithanage.

The order was issued by the Colombo District Court Judge Amal Ranaraja.

Earlier this year Vithana had lodged a complaint with the Mirihana police claiming that his private videos were being circulated by some persons.

He had said that the videos were copied from his computer when it was taken to the Kotte Municipal Council during the provincial council elections.

Vithana accused the Kotte Mayor Janaka Ranawake and the secretary to the Mayor of being involved in distributing copies of the videos.
