Special Court sets date to hear case on Gota

Friday, 30 August 2019

The Special High Court today set the date to hear the case against former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa and six others over alleged misappropriation of state funds when constructing the D.A. Rajapaksa Museum.

The Permanent High Court at Bar decided to hear the case on a daily basis from the 15th of October.

In March this year, Rajapaksa filed a Writ Certiorari challenging an order made by the Permanent High Court which rejected preliminary objections raised by his lawyers in the D.A. Rajapaksa case.
