Kerner’s arrest warrant recalled


Colombo Additional Magistrate Harshana Kekulawala yesterday (24) recalled the arrest warrant issued on social media activist Dr. Pathum Kerner. The warrant that was issued against Dr. Kerner for the arrest and immediate production in Court was so recalled as Dr. Kerner appeared in Court on his own accord yesterday (24).

Dr. Kerner had been previously enlarged on bail, in connection with his involvement in the anti-Government protest at the Polduwa Junction on 13 July. The  Magistrate issued the warrant for the arrest of Kerner, over the latter’s failure to be present in Court, when the case related to the aforesaid incident was called.
