Wimal challenges the Commercial High Court verdict

An Appeals petition was filed today in the Supreme Court challenging the ruling given by the Colombo Commercial High Court with respect to the book “Nettha Wenuwata Ettha” authored by Jathika Nidahas Peramuna Leader Wimal Weerawansa.
Filing the Appeals petition Wimal Weerawansa said that the verdict given by the Colombo Commercial High Court was blatant. As such he is calling on the Apex Court through his petition to suspend this ruling. The Colombo Commercial High Court recently ruled that the book “Nettha Wenuwata Ettha” authored by Wimal Weerawansa since leaving the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna had been written violating rights in the Intellectual Property Act.
As such the Colombo Commercial High Court ordered Wimal Weerawansa to pay one million rupees to General Secretary of the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna Tilwin Silva. Also an order was issued banning the printing and sale of this book.
