The hearing of the petition seeking an injunction order preventing Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna Presidential Candidate Gotabhaya Rajapaksa from being recognised as a Sri Lankan citizen will resume today at 1.30 pm.

The lawyers of the plaintiffs made their submissions in court yesterday.

The Attorney General's Department stated in court yesterday that Mahinda Rajapaksa as the President at the time, had the authority to sign the dual citizenship document of Gotabhaya Rajapaksa.

Meanwhile, the motion filed by former Defense Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa seeking the release of his foreign passport which is currently in the custody of the courts, will be considered before the three bench Colombo High Court today.
