Interim Order Against Full Face Helmet Ban Extended Till September 2

The Court of Appeal today extended the interim order suspending the Police Advisory Circular banning full-face helmets till September 2.
 
The Attorney General informed the court that further time is needed to reach a settlement on the issue.
 
The police earlier decided to ban full face helmets with effect from March 21 in order to stop crimes and burglaries done by people covering their faces using full face helmets.
 
However, following strong opposition from motorcyclists, the ban was withdrawn on March 9, following the instructions of Minister John Amaratunga.
 
Later the police said it will implement the ban from April 2. However, the Court of Appeal issued an interim order against the order, which was extended on several occasions.
