After considering the prosecution’s request made in relation to the case filed against former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa and six others over the alleged misappropriation of Rs. 33.9 million by building a D. A. Rajapaksa museum, the Colombo Special High Court today decided to continue hearing evidence over the case on daily basis from October 15, 2019.

On an earlier occasion, the Supreme Court had directed the Special High Court to stop hearing further evidence over the D.A. Rajapaksa museum case till October 1, 2019, while the Supreme Court decides on the appeal made by the defence in this case over the jurisdiction of the Special High Court to hear the case.

However, the prosecution has made a request today before the Special High Court Trial-at-Bar to continue the trial after the date of October 1, 2019.

Subsequently, the Trial at Bar comprising Judges Sampath Abeyrathna, Sampath Abeykoon and Champa Janaki Rajarathne issued summons on three witnesses to appear before the court on October 15, 2019. (Shehan Chamika Silva)

    On the eve of the election Gota will be confined to precincts of courts. Will the SC relax the stay?

    Given the past experience of this case I have my doubt as to whether this will ever be taken for hearing .
