Notices issued on Geetha Kumarasinga over dual citizenship
The Appeal Court issued notices on 4 respondents including MP Geetha Kumarasinghe ordering them to appear before Court on November 19th.
The notices were issued today after considering a petition filed by five voters of the Galle district.
The petitioners requested Court to issue an order declaring the MP position currently being held by Geetha Kumarsinghe null and void as holding dual citizenship by a MP is against the Constitution.
Four persons including MP Geetha Kumarasinghe and the UPFA General Secretary are among the respondents.
