Lawyers at the Wattala Magistrate’s Court allege that that courts complex that is in hazardous condition is in danger of collapsing due to the current weather conditions.
Due to this, court proceedings were held outdoors today.
Parliamentarian barrister John Senevirathna speaking to our news team stated that although this condition has been prevalent for the last couple of days, the authorities have not taken action to fix the problem.
However, a senior spokesperson of the Wattala District Secretariat stated that a land has been acquired in Welisara to relocate the Wattala Courts.
The spokesperson added that the Magistrate’s Court will be moved temporarily to the District Secretariat.
