The Court of Appeal ordered today not to arrest interdicted High Court Judge Gihan Pilapitiya without an arrest warrant issued by a Magistrate Court.

The Appeal court issued this order after considering the anticipatory bail application filed by Judge Pilapitiya.

Judge Pilapitiya filed the petition against the instruction given by the Attorney general to the Acting IGP to arrest him with regard to the ongoing investigations in connection with the controversial voice clips of MP Ranjan Ramanayake.
