The Court of Appeal issued an interim order on Friday stating a Consumer Affairs Authority (CAA) direction allowing all LP Gas traders to refill and sell LPG in any cylinder given to them.
The court order was made following a writ filed by Shell Gas Lanka Limited (SGLL) against the Consumer Affairs Authority and two other LP gas companies.rn

rnThe order comes on the back of an earlier restraining order Shell had obtained preventing Mundo Gas in particular, from filling Shell branded cylinders. (LBR)rn
