FR petition challenges Keheliya’s gazette
A Fundamental Rights application filed with the Supreme Court on Wednesday (02) has challenged the recent gazette notification stating that only fully vaccinated persons will be allowed to enter public spaces.
The application filed by Professor F. M. Jayathilake and Attorney-at-Law Nuwan Bellanthudawa seeks to invalidate the gazette notification.
Twelve persons including the Health Minister Keheliya Rambukwella, State Ministers Sudarshani Fernandopullu & Channa Jayasumana and the Director-General of Health Services have been named as respondents.
The relevant gazette, issued on Jan. 25, will come into effect from April 30 this year.
