Restraining order on naming two roads  

by Chitra Weerarathne

Mrs. Nirmal de Alwis, the widow of late Premakeerthi de Alwis, radio and television programme compiler, had recently filed a Writ Application in the Court of Appeal requesting the Court to restrain the Homagama Pradeshiya Sabha from naming two roads in Homagama after him, without informing family members.

The petition said that Premakeerthi de Alwis was murdered by a gunman in 1989, when their son was only one year old.

A proper investigation was not held into the killing.

The respondents are the Secretary and other member of the Homagama Pradeshiya Sabha.
