Former Minister Rishad Bathiudeen files FR petition

Former Minister Rishad Bathiudeen filed a Fundamental Rights petition before the Supreme Court, seeking a court order preventing his arrest.

The leader of the All Ceylon Makkal Congress (ACMC) named Acting Inspector General of Police (IGP) C.D. Wickramaratne, the DIG in charge of the CID, the Director of the CID and the Attorney General as respondents in the petition.

Bathiudeen says the Police are attempting to arrest him over allegations he transported voters from Puttalam using buses belonging to the Sri Lanka Transport Board during the last Presidential election.

The former Minister has rejected the allegations. (Colombo Gazette)
