Court Order Issued Against Planned Protests - Sri Lanka
A Sri Lankan court has forbidden protesters of several religious organizations from entering Olcott Mawatha, Colombo, and other locations for demonstrations planned for 7 July. Violators may be penalized.
Many countries advise their citizens to avoid all non-essential travel to Sri Lanka due to the ongoing economic and political crisis. Foreigners participating in another country’s protests risk, arrest, detention, and deportation.
