Appeal Court issues interim order against imported garbage

The Court of Appeal has issued an interim order against imported garbage at the Colombo Port and Katunayake Free Trade Zone from being brought into the country.

A writ petition seeking a court order directing legal action to be taken against the parties liable for the waste containers was heard at the Court of Appeal yesterday and the case continued today.

During yesterday’s hearing, Romesh de Silva PC addressing Court clarified the position of Hayleys Free Zone Limited, which has been accused over importing the garbage, and stated that in view of the fact that Hayleys Free Zone has never transported any cargo within Sri Lanka other than for the purposes of re-export and since Hayleys Free Zone had no intention whatever to transport cargo other than for the purposes of re-export that he had no objection to the interim being issued.
