President, PM issued summons

The Colombo High Court has issued summons to President Maithripala Sirisena ns Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, to appear in Court, when the case against former UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake was taken up today (17).

The President, who was the common candidate at the time, and Prime Minister, who ws the then Opposition Leader, are named as the 1st and 2nd witnesses.

Although the President and Prime Minister were summoned by Court earlier, the Attorneys appearing on their behalf had notified Court that they were unable to attend due to their commitments, and asked for an alternative date.

However, Court had decided to re-issue summons after considering the request of the Senior Attorney appearing on behalf of the Attorney general.

The case will be taken up for hearing from December 04 to 12.
