Rajitha's appeal fixed for June 30

The appeal application by former Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne challenging the Colombo High Court’s decision to refuse bail on him was yesterday fixed for June 30 by the Court of Appeal.

President’s Counsel Anil de Silva appearing for Rajitha Senaratne informed court that he is expecting to obtain instructions from his client to decide whether this petition will be proceeded further, since he has already out on bail.

The Court of Appeal fixed the application for June 30, and the petitioner was directed to present his stance regarding the application.

Former Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne was remanded in connection with the controversial white van press conference following an order by the Colombo High Court. Subsequently, he filed an appeal before the Court of Appeal challenging the judgment of the Colombo High Court.

Through this application, former Health Minister is seeking Court of Appeal jurisdiction to set aside the High Court’s order and to release him on bail.
