Ravi and Arjun mark their attendance in Magistrate’s court
ECONOMYNEXT – Former Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake, Perpetual Treasuries head Arjun Aloysius and two others were ordered by the Court of Appeal to appear before the Fort Magistrate this afternoon.
This was after the court heard a writ petition by the two accused in the Bonds Scam asking the court to annul arrest warrants issued by the magistrate.
The Court also ordered the Magistrate to refrain from taking further action until the Judges decide on the issuance of Notice.
The police were ordered to execute the warrants and arrest the accused if they fail to appear. The accused were not granted bail.
The Attorney General was given time until Tuesday to reply.
The petition was heard by a bench comprising Justice A H M D Nawaz, President of the Court of Appeal and Justices Sobhitha Rajakaruna and Shiran Guneratne. (Colombo March 13, 2020)
