District Judge of Colombo Sujatha Alahapperuma yesterday allowed time fill January 26, 2015 for four defendant TV stations to file objections to an injunction application filed by Maithripala Sirisena, the common opposition candidate at the forthcoming Presidential Poll.

The plaintiff has said that the TV channels telecast an advertisement with a statement where he had praised the policies of President Rajapaksa in 2009. The plaint had said that the statement was said some years ago and not a current statement made by him. He had wanted the telecast, prohibited by court order. Ronald Perera PC appeared with Sandun Gamage for the plaintiff Sirisena.

Kuvera de Zoysa PC appeared for the defendant TV stations.
