The Court of Appeal was told today that there are over one thousand suspicious containers of stuff abandoned in the Colombo Port as nobody claims them.

Later, the court ordered the Port Authority to open them and ascertain whether there is any garbage inside them.

The Order was issued when the petition filed by Parisara Yukthi Kendraya was taken for hearing today.

The Petitioner requested the court to issue a writ on the Central Environmental Authority ordering it to resend the British garbage to its country of origin.

The court also ordered the Government analyst to submit his report to the court on the imported British waste with immediate effect.

The court also ordered to investigate whether there are any harmful chemicals to the human body and environment.
