Speed up construction - Wijeyadasa

Parliamentarian and President’s Counsel Dr. Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe has urged Justice Minister Thalatha Athukorale to expedite the construction of the new court complex in Hulftsdorp.

In a letter dated June 28, 2019, Dr. Rajapakshe has written to Minister Athukorale pointing out that Colombo High Court and Colombo District Courts complexes are in a dilapidated condition. He further said that the lives of the people who use these court complexes are in peril, considering the condition of these buildings.

Pointing out the tedious process he had to undergo to secure six acres of land which belonged to B.C.C. Lanka Ltd to build the court complex when he held the Justice Minister portfolio, Dr. Rajapakshe has requested Minister Athukorale to expedite the construction process of the new courts complex. He requested the Minister to consider the safety of the courts’ staff and the public.

Dr. Rajapakshe who has commended the President and the Prime Minister for their willingness to complete this project, has also noted that construction of the new courts complex was originally planned to begin in 2017 and finish by 2020.
