Court Of Appeal Issues Interim Injunction Preventing The Arrest Of Gotabhaya Rajapaksa Until December 6

The Appeals Court of Sri Lanka today issued an interim injunction preventing the arrest of Gotabhaya Rajapaksa until December 6.

Former Defense Secretary Rajapaksa yesterday (28) filed an FR petition at the Appeals Court seeking to prevent his arrest by the Financial Crimes Investigation Division (FCID) of the Police.

The FCID is seeking his arrest over the misappropriation of state funds amounting to Rs. 91 million while his brother Mahinda Rajapaksa was in power.

The sum of Rs. 91 million - obtained for the ‘Weeraketiya Project’ under the Land Reclamation and Development Authority - had been used to build the memorial for his parents.
