The Courts warned the incumbent of Alan Mathiniyaramaya of Polhengoda Uduwe Dhammaloka Thera to follow Court orders.

The Thera was warned by the courts when a case against him was taken for hearing before Colombo Additional magistrate Dulani Amarasinghe.

Action has been filed against the Thera for using loudspeakers between 5 and 6am thereby disturbing the residents living around the temple.

The case was filed by former minister Milinda Moragoda, the Environmental Justice Center and a group of residents in the area.

When the plaintiffs informed the Court that the order was being ignored, the Magistrate told the respondent that one should observe religion without causing annoyance to others.

The Magistrate ordered Dhammaloka Thera to obey the law.

Meanwhile, Dhammaloka Thera’s lawyers informed courts that they hope to file objections against the complaint before January 24th.
