MP Namal Rajapaksa stands accused of using, for other purpose, a sum of Rs. 70 million granted for the promotion of rugger by India’s Kriish company that leased out a 4.3 acre land at Transworks Square in Colombo for a construction project during the previous regime.
Pursuant to submissions made by the FCID, the magistrate gave permission to examine a cheque for Rs. 17 million issued to Nimal Perera, who owns N Capital, for a property at Gover’s Lane in Colombo.
The case has been filed on a complaint lodged by Voice against Corruption convener Wasantha Samarasinghe in 2015.
The case will be taken up again on October 26.
