Avant Garde case: Court of Appeal 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 order was delivered by Appeals Court Judges Achala Wengappuli and Arjuna Obeysekara today (12).

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.

He then lodged a revision application stating that the rejection of his preliminary objections is unlawful, which was allowed by the Appeals Court to proceed today.
