AG Ordered To Appear Before Court Over Basil’s Bail Case

Jayantha Jayasuriya -Attorney General

The Attorney General, Jayantha Jayasuriy has been ordered to appear before the Colombo High Court on August 1, when former Minister Basil Rajapaksa’s bail revision application will be taken up.

The Court has ordered officials of FCID as well as the Attorney General to appear before court as they have been cited as respondents in the bail application.

Rajapaksa, who is alleged to have misappropriated Rs. 33 million from the Divi Neguma project and was ordered to be remanded is seeking for a reversal of the court decision.

Rajapaksa was arrested by the FCID last week when he visited the office to give a statement in relation to the case. Meanwhile in mid-July, the Attorney General decided to charge Rajapaksa and three others for misappropriation of funds over the same case. The case is scheduled to be taken up on August 30.
