Detained journalist appeals to Court

by Chitra Weerarathne - Free Lance Journalist Ruwan Amarajith Weerakoon, currently in detention custody, through a lawyer, filed a fundamental rights violation application against the CID and the Terrorist Investigation Department.

He had said that he had been illegally arrested on March 15, and thereafter detained in TID custody.

The petitioner requested the Court to direct the CID and the TID to release him from unlawful custody.

The petition said that the detainee had been arrested while he was receiving medical treatment at the Nawaloka Hospital Colombo.

The petition will be supported in Court, shortly.
