The Appeals Court has ordered Minister of industry and commerce Rishad Bathiudeen to appear before courts on the 5th of September.

This verdict was issued following the petition filed by a group of senior lawyers with regards to the Minister intimidating the Mannar Magistrate over the phone and subsequently supporting the attack on the Mannar Magistrate Courts.

The appeals court had ordered Minister Bathiudeen to provide reasons as to why he should not be punished for contempt of court on the 5th of September.

Further more the Chairman of the Appeals court Judge Ranjith Silva has ordered the minister not to intimidate the petitioners or the witnesses in any form.
