The Court of Appeal ordered General Secretary of Bodu Bala Sena Organization Galagoda Aththe Gnanasara Thera to appear before Court along with all medical reports on May 30th.

Action has been filed against the Thera for contempt of Court alleging that he misbehaved inside the Courtroom when Journalist Prageeth Eknaligoda Disappearing Case was being heard by Homagama Magistrate Court.

The case was taken before President of the Court of Appeal Justice Rohini Walgama and Justice S. Thurairajah to fix dates for the hearing.

Appearing on behalf of Galagoda Aththe Gnanasara Thera, his lawyer informed the Court that his client does not appear before court as he is unwell.

Having considered the plea, the panel of three judges ordered the suspect to appear before Court along with relevant medical reports.

Meanwhile, a Case filed against former minister Basil Rajapaksa and another individual was taken before Colombo High Court Judge Gihan Kulatunga today.

The respondents have been charged under 5 counts including allegedly spending 29.4 million rupees belonging to the then Divineguma Department to print and distribute propaganda almanacs of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa during the past presidential election.

Meanwhile, the High Court Judge who considered a special plea made by the respondents’ lawyer has ordered to take the Case again for hearing on June 15th.
