Gota contests Permanent HC order: CA postpones for May 6 to support

Colombo, 26 March, (

Court of Appeal today (26) postponed the Writ Petition filed by former Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa for May 6 to be supported.

Gotabhaya Rajapaksa filed his Writ Petition against the order of the Permanent High Court Trial-at-Bar which is hearing the D.A.Rajapaksa Museum Case.

Petitioner cited sitting judges of the Permanent High Court Trial-at-Bar Sampath Abhayakoon (President), Sampath Wijeratne and Champa Janaki Rajaratne as well as the Attorney General as Respondents.

The Permanent High Court Trial-at-Bar in its order overruled the preliminary objection raised by the former Defense Secretary Gotabhaya and six accused in the said case.

Petitioner seeks the Court to quash the order made by the High Court on 20th February 2019 rejecting his plea under and in terms of Judicature (amendment) Act No. 9 of 2018.

He bemoans that the sitting judges did not give him an opportunity to be heard prior to the said order dated 20th February 2019.
