The Colombo Commercial High Courts today issued an enjoining order which proscribes the MTV/ MBC networks from carrying out any 2012 London Olympic related pre-promotional activities.
Earlier the Colombo Commercial High Courts issued an order which prevented the telecast rights of the 2012 London Olympics being awarded to any institution except state run, Rupavahini.
Colombo Commercial High Court judge Gamini Amarasekere issued this enjoining order effective until May 31st, sequel to a civil suit filed by the SLRC.
Meanwhile Gangodawila District Judge Champa Janaki Rajarathna refused
the petition which was filed by UNP MP Karu Jayasuriya yesterday.
In his petition Karu Jayasuriya had requested of court to issue an enjoining order against the calling in for explanations by the UNP for criticising the Srinath Perera Committee report.
Moreover the district judge had also ordered 6 persons including the leader of the opposition to submit explanations justifying their stance.
