A petition has been filed in Sri Lanka's Supreme Court seeking an interim order restraining on the Rajapaksa brothers.
President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and his youngest brother Basil, who resigned in April as finance minister, faced similar standoffs with airport staff as they tried to flee the country.
The decision was taken during a crucial all-party leaders meeting. Protestors in Sri Lanka who have forced the president and prime minister out of their official residences said they will occupy the buildings until the two quit office.
