The Court of Appeal today issued an interim order till December 6, preventing the FCID from taking action against former defence secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa based on the Public Property Act.

Mr. Rajapaksa last Friday filed a Writ petition seeking the Court to quash a report filed under Offences against the Public Property Act.

In his application, he cited IGP Pujith Jayasundara, CID Director Shani Abeysekera, FCID DIG Ravi Waidyalankara, ASP Kamal Paliakara and the Attorney General as respondents.

He also sought Court to prevent the respondents from proceeding with the report filed against him. (S.S.Selvanayagam)

    Legal protection for the grand thieves. What a pathetic legal system in Sri Lanka. This must be rectified by making necessary amendments to the existing Law, soon, to block such loop wholes as he is dead sure of such robberies.

    Did the AG represent the respondents duly in this case? What are the submissions made by the AG representing them in this case?

    BV Wednesday, 29 November 2017 01:25 PM

    The SG representing the AG had requested for time to make counter submissions and that's why it has been postponed to Dec 6 th.

    The whole country know who is crook and not. But our legal system is still groping in the dark-- very pathetic

    It seems like all the people of the country are afraid to white vans,even now!

    Mohan Wednesday, 29 November 2017 10:20 PM

    Very true. He may come to power by next presidential election, and the judge may lose his job or even worse.

    voter Wednesday, 29 November 2017 12:52 PM

    As expected. No surprise in the order. The law will apply only to the common man that too to the letter. If you do not have anything to hide then you don't need interim orders preventing investigations.

    Invited for Wijedasa Rajapakse's cocktail party tonight, anyone?

    Such a coward. So called war hero.

    Shan Wednesday, 29 November 2017 01:32 PM

    When you know the Law, you know how to manipulate it. Not for to long...

    GR should face the legal system of this country bravely to prove his innocence.

    people have lost again the faith for our judiciary as it applies differently. In India recently a cult leader with millions of disciples in all over India was sentence to 22 years for alleged rape amidst strikes,riots closure of school in fever of the guru. This is how judiciary works in India

    There are two kinds of lawyers- the ones who know the law and the ones who know the judge!!!!!

    KP Thursday, 30 November 2017 09:58 AM

    U will be summoned like Ranjan R by the bar.

    Yeti Thursday, 30 November 2017 06:41 AM

    The brave die but once but a coward dies a thousand times!!!

    Said Mohammad Thursday, 30 November 2017 11:43 AM

    GR must be brave enough to face the courts and stand for trial. If he is proved guilty of any crime or corruption then he must accept the verdict. We have to wait and see. The whole country is waiting to see that proper justice is carried out.
