The Colombo High Court re-issued notice on President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe today (Jul 24) to appear before the court on 9th of October relating to a case filed against former UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake.

The court had previously issued notice on the President and the Prime Minister to appear before the court today.

However, Deputy Solicitor General Dileep Peiris appearing on behalf of the Attorney General, informed the court that the President and the Premier had informed in writing that they are unable to appear in court today due to a previously scheduled Cabinet meeting.

In this case, Tissa Attanayake is charged with making public a forged document that alleged that a secret agreement existed between the then Common Candidate Maithripala Sirisena and UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe during the presidential election.
