Gota’s revision application fixed for support

The revision application filed by former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa challenging the Trial-at-Bar order dated January 11, 2019 in the D. A. Rajapaksa Museum case was yesterday fixed for May 30 by the Court of Appeal.

The Court of Appeal bench comprised Justices Achala Wengappuli and Arjuna Obeysekere. On February 11, the Permanent High Court-at-Bar decided to overrule preliminary objections raised by Gotabaya Rajapaksa and six others in connection with the D. A. Rajapaksa Museum case citing that the Permanent High Court-at-Bar has jurisdiction to hear this case. Gotabaya Rajapaksa had filed a revision application in the Court of Appeal seeking an order to set aside this order issued by Permanent High Court-at-Bar. Additional Solicitor General Priyantha Nawana PC appearing for the Attorney General had raised Preliminary Objections citing appeals relating to the orders issued by Trial-at-Bar bench should be referred to the Supreme Court instead of filing them before the Court of Appeal. President’s Counsel Romesh de Silva with counsel Sugath Caldera under the instructions of counsel Sanath Wijewardane appeared for Gotabaya Rajapaksa.

Senior Deputy Solicitor General Milinda Gunatilleke with State Counsel Udara Karunaratne appeared for the Attorney General.
