The Special High Court today overruled the preliminary objections  raised in the case filed against former defense secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa stating that the Special High Court had no jurisdiction to hear the case under the Judicature (Amendment) Act.

The case was fixed for February 22 by the High Court.

The former defense secretary and six others were indicted on charges of misappropriating Rs.49 million in connection with the construction of the D. A. Rajapaksa Museum and Memorial in Medamulana. (Faruk Thajudeen)

    As a person who is going to contest for presidency, he should get all allegations - corruption, murder etc cleared in courts. Why does he hesitant to face the judiciary if he is innocent?

    Why is he worried about the jurisdiction if he is innocent? This itself shows that he is guilty of the charges.
