Court of Appeal rejects Gota’s petition

Former Defense Secretary, Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s submitted writ petition and petition for revision seeking the court to void the verdict delivered by the Permanent High Court at Bar, was rejected by the Appeal’s Court today (18).

The case was filed over the construction of the D.A. Rajapaksa Memorial, where the former Defense Secretary was accused of having misused State-funds in the construction of the memorial.

The petitions were taken up before the Appeals Court Judges Achala Wengappuli and Arjuna Obeysekara.
