Several cases which were scheduled to be taken for trial today at the Colombo

Magistrates Court, High Court & Several other District Courts were postponed for later days based upon the discretion of Magistrates.

 

Meanwhile a group of lawyers engaged in a peaceful protest today before the Colombo Supreme Court complex, sporting black bands.
