A Fundamental Rights Petition filed by Former Minister and the leader of All Ceylon Makkal Congress (ACMC) Rishad Bathiudeen and several others including three former MPs seeking an order staying the operation of gazette notification issued to cremate the corpses of Muslim persons who had died of COVID-19 was fixed for support by Supreme Court.

Supreme Court three-judge-bench comprising Justice Murdu Fernando, Justice S. Thurairaja and Justice Yasantha Kodagoda yesterday 27 May, fixed the petition to be taken up for support on July 22.
