Hirunika advised to dress properly
Colombo Additional Magistrate Praharsha Ranasinghe today advised Hirunika Premachandra to be appropriately dressed when attending Court.
Ms. Premachandra was clad in a long-sleeved light pink kurtha and a pair of trousers.
In this case she and four others were charged with having intimidated and assaulted a businessman after trespassing into his business premises at Kinsey Road in Borella.
The Magistrate referred the case to the Mediation Board.
When the case was taken up for inquiry Defence Counsel Nissanka Nanyakkara appearing with Sanjeewa Seneviratne, Nilan Amarakoon and Madura Welgama told the Magistrate that the suspects had been released on police bail and said the case could be settled amicably through mediation. The complainant had agreed to this suggestion.
The Magistrate released the suspects on bail and directed the parties concerned to be present at the Mediation Board and a copy of the proceedings to be submitted to Court on July 31.
