Eleven organisations are planning to take legal action following Attorney General Dappula de Livera authorising the banning of those organisations, sources said.

The Deputy Secretary of the Sri Lanka Thowheed Jama’ath Organisation, which has been named as one of the extremist groups to be banned, T. Ahmed stated that they had met their lawyers and will take necessary measures to counter their proscription through the law.

He added that before the lapse of 14 days after the publication of the Gazette Notification related to the proscription of the organisations they will file legal action against the Attorney General and the Inspector General of Police.
