The special trial at bar rejected the preliminary objections filed by 7 respondents including former defence secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, citing that the special high court does not have jurisdiction to hear the case filed against them today.

therefore the special trial at bar, has decided to take the case for hearing.

The 7 respondents have been sued for the alleged misappropriation of 33 million rupees during the construction of DA Rajapaksa museum at Medamulana.

the court informed the respondents today to make the submission on February 22.

Meanwhile, the hearing that was scheduled for today, against 7 suspects including MP Wimal Weerawansa was postponed to 25th February.

The case had been filed against a protest that was staged when former UNHRC commissioner Zeid Rad Al Husain visited the country on February the 6th 2016.

The demonstration caused notable disturbance to the public, as it blocked off Havelock Road and Bauddhaloka Mawatha.

The case was taken before the Colombo Chief Magistrate, Lanka Jayarathna this morning.
