Interim injunction issued against summoning Gota in Lalith, Kugan case

An interim injunction has been issued against summoning former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa over the disappearance of human rights and political activists Lalith Kumar Weeraraj and Kugan Muruganandan.

The interim injunction was issued to the Jaffna Magistrate’s Court by the Court of Appeal.

Rajapaksa was scheduled to appear at the Jaffna Magistrate’s Court on September 27 in a Habeas Corpus inquiry into the disappearance of the two activists.

They had been reported missing in December 2011 when Rajapaksa was the Secretary to the Ministry of Defence.
