Thu, Sep 14, 2017, 12:53 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Sept 14, Colombo: The Colombo High Court today issued notice for Attorney General to appear before courts on September 20 to state his position on the appeal against 'Sil' Cloth verdict.

Attorney President's Counsel Kalinga Indratissa representing the former Secretary to the former President Lalith Weeratunga and the former Director General of the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission Anusha Palpita told the court that his clients have filed an appeal contesting the High Court verdict on the trial.

The Counsel requested the court to release the two defendants on bail until the appeal is heard and a ruling is given.

Colombo High Court Judge Gihan Kulatunga last week sentenced the two former senior government officials after they were found guilty of misappropriating state funds for the reelection campaign of former president Mahinda Rajapaksa. They were each sentenced to three years of rigorous imprisonment and fined 2 million rupees each.

Considering the counsel's request, Judge Gihan Kulatunga issued notice to Attorney General to appear before the court on 20th September to state his position on the defendants' appeal.
