Gotabaya released from D. A. Rajapaksa memorial case; passport released
President Gotabaya Rajapaksa has been released from all indictments in the D. A. Rajapaksa memorial case, sources said.
Rajapaksa’s passport, the subject of much controversy in the run-up to the recently concluded presidential election, has also been released.
Sources said the Attorney General had released Rajapaksa from the misappropriation case over the controversial D. A. Rajapaksa memorial citing presidential immunity, as per the constitution.
Rajapaksa’s lawyers had filed a motion at the Special High Court, following which the Attorney General’s Department withdrew all indictments against the President.
