Order on Gota’s preliminary objections fixed for Feb. 11

The order regarding the preliminary objections raised by former Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa and six others challenging the Colombo Permanent High Court-at-Bar’s jurisdiction to hear D. A. Rajapaksa Museum case was today fixed for February 11.

The Trial-at-Bar bench comprised High Court Judges Sampath Abeykoon (President), Sampath Wijeratne and Champa Janaki Rajaratne.

Deputy Solicitor General (DSG) Dileepa Peiris appearing for the Attorney General today provided answers to the arguments presented by defence counsel who challenged the court’s jurisdiction to hear this case.

DSG Peiris submitted to court that Permanent High Court-at-Bar was established through the provisions of Judicature (Amendment) Act, No. 9 of 2018 and the matter was extensively debated at the Supreme Court.
