Accordingly, a protest was held this morning in front of the Maharagama Municipal Council over the failure to still arrest him.

The protestors point out that the mayor had escaped when his father was present when the mayor went to arrest him and that it was a serious offense for the mayor to obstruct the duties of public officials and threaten to kill him.

The protest called for the intervention of the Minister in charge and to immediately arrest the mayor.
