The Kaduwela Magistrate’s Court has rejected a request by Yoshitha Rajapaksa to travel overseas.
Yoshitha Rajapaksa informed Court that his father, Former President MP Mahinda Rajapaksa, had received an invitation to participate in the swearing in ceremony of the President of Uganda.
Accordingly, Yoshitha Rajapaksa’s Attorneys requested the Kaduwela Magistrate’s Court to grant permission for him to travel overseas.
However, Kaduwela Magistrate Dhammika Hemapala rejecting the request said bail was granted by the Colombo High Court over the CSN case against Yoshitha Rajapaksa and the four others.
Accordingly, the Magistrate informed the Attorneys to direct the request to the Colombo High Court as the matter was under the jurisdiction of the Colombo High Court.
