CA allows Gota’s Revision Application

The Court of Appeal delivering a ruling today set aside the Magistrate’s Court order in the Avant Garde case following a Revision Application filed by Gotabaya Rajapaksa.

The Bribery Commission had filed a corruption charge against former Defence Secretary Rajapaksa and seven others alleging that the suspect had caused Rs.11.4 billion unlawful loss to the State when giving permission to Avant Garde Maritime Services to operate a floating armoury.

However, the High Court of Colombo dismissed the Revision Application against the Magistrate’s Court order earlier.
