Colombo Additional Magistrate T.N. Ilangasinghe yesterday (19) issued an overseas travel ban to Jehan Appuhami, a veteran Sri Lankan actor and a front-line activist of the Galleface protest, based on the Police’s presenting of facts before the Court that he escaped from police custody upon being arrested during a student protest two days ago.

The Police requested the Court that Appuhami, who according to them escaped from custody, be barred from leaving the country.

However, the lawyer appearing for Appuhami told the Court that his client visited the Maradana Police Station and left as he was informed by the Maradana Police that an arrest was not necessary. He pointed out that his client was never a fugitive from police custody and that he is ready to appear before Court at any time.
