The Supreme Court allows the trial against former President Gotabhaya
The Supreme Court has today (07) granted permission to hear two fundamental rights petitions filed against former President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, former Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa and former Finance Minister Basil Rajapaksa.
That was when the petitions were considered before a five-member bench led by Chief Justice Jayantha Jayasuriya.
These two petitions have been filed by former president of the Sri Lanka Chamber of Commerce Chandra Jayaratne, swimming champion Julian Bowling and University Dr. Mahim Mendis, requesting the government to order an investigation against the people responsible for the current economic crisis in Sri Lanka.
The relevant petitions are scheduled to be recalled on 09 January 2023.
