Among those who were barred from leaving the country are IUSF convener Wasantha Mudalige, CTU leader joseph Stalin, Lahiru Weerasekara, Eranga Gunasekara and Rev. Fr. Jeewantha Peiris.
They have been named as suspects in a case filed against them for taking part in unlawful assembly and blocking the entry to Lotus Road, Finance Ministry and Presidential Secretariat.
The travel ban was imposed by Colombo Fort Magistrate Thilina Gamage after taking into account a request made by the Colombo Fort Police who told the court that as per intelligence information received, the individuals in question were planning to leave the country.
The magistrate ordered to communicate the Controller General of Immigration and Emigration of the travel ban imposed on the said individuals.
