Sri Lanka’s Supreme Court on Thursday (10) ordered for the convener of the Inter-University Student’s Federation Wasantha Mudalige to be produced to a Magistrate immediately.
In addition, the Supreme Court also ordered for Mudalige to be produced to the Judicial Medical Officer of the Karapitiya Hospital.
Wasantha Mudalige is being detained under the Prevention of Terrorism Act for 90-days, and the orders were made when a Fundamental Rights application challenging his detention was taken up on Thursday (10).
The application was called up in the presence of Justices Vijith Malalgoda, and S. Thurairajah who ordered for the examination of the FR petition to commence on the 31st of January 2023.
The petitioner in the application is Wasantha Mudalige, and President’s Counsel Saliya Peiris appeared for him in the Supreme Court.
