The case filed against four accused, including former Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa, for allegedly misappropriating Rs. 2,991 million of funds belonging to the Divi Neguma Department while distributing roofing sheets and other housing materials among Divi Neguma beneficiaries during the previous Presidential Election, was yesterday fixed for further trial on November 1 by the Colombo High Court.

When the case came up before High Court Judge Shashi Mahendran, the witnesses of the case were advised to come before court on the next trial date.

The Attorney General had filed indictments against four accused including former Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa for allegedly misappropriating Rs. 2,991 million of funds belonging to the Divi Neguma Department while distributing roofing sheets among Divi Neguma beneficiaries during the 2015 Presidential Election.
