The Colombo Commercial High Court has suspended the enjoining order issued banning an Aeroflot flight from leaving the Bandaranaike International Airport.
The order was issued by Commercial High Court judge Harsha Sethunga this afternoon (6).
The Attorney General earlier requested the Colombo Commercial High Court to rescind the enjoining order issued on the 2nd of June banning the flight from leaving the BIA.
The Attorney General filing a motion said the matter has inconvenienced passengers, affected the national economy, and has legal implications.
Last week, the Aeroflot flight was prevented from leaving the BIA based on an enjoining order issued by the Commercial High Court over a legal dispute between two private companies.
Russian authorities reacted strongly over the move to prevent the aircraft from leaving BIA.
Russian flag carrier Aeroflot also announced that it was suspending commercial flights between Colombo and Moscow.
The Foreign Ministry meanwhile maintained that the issue is between two private entities.
Russian nationals who were unable to leave Sri Lanka for the past three days due to the flight being grounded, following a Court order, returned to Russia yesterday.
