Commenting on a case filed against former Solicitor General and President Counsel Rienzie Arsakularatne, whose mobile phone had reportedly rung inside the Galle High Court, the Hultsdorp High Court Lawyers’ Association (HCLA) today affirmed that when a phone rings inside a Court room it could not be considered a Contempt of Court as the occurrence was an involuntary act.

Meanwhile, the Colombo Magistrate’s Court Lawyers’ Association also expressed their solidarity with PC Arsakularatne saying if this matter is not settled amicably they would organize a peaceful protest against the Galle High Court Judge’s decision to bring charges against PC Arsakularatne.
