An arrest warrant has been issued on United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) parliamentarian Jayantha Samaraweera, stated Ada Derana reporter.

The Colombo Chief Magistrate has issued the arrest warrant on the MP for failure to appear before the courts.

Cinnamon Garden Police filed a case against 7 individuals including the National Freedom Front (NFF) MP Jayantha Samaraweera for obstructing traffic and causing inconvenience to the public during a protest campaign in 2016 against the visit of UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, outside the UN Office.

However, as the parliamentarian failed to appear before the court when the case was taken up for hearing today (17), Colombo Chief Magistrate issued an arrest warrant on the MP.
