Notices were issued once again,  on President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe to appear before Court in connection with the Case against former UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake.

The Case against Tissa Attanayake for preparing forged documents was taken before Colombo High Court Judge Wikum Kalu-Aarachchi this morning.

At the same time the Court decided today that the case hearing would take place from December 4 to 12.

The Attorney General has filed Action against Tissa Attanayake on 3 counts of charges including making a statement that there was a secret agreement between the then Common Presidential Candidate Maithripala Sirisena and the then Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe.

Addressing a media conference held in December 2014 in Colombo, Tissa Attanayake produced forged documents before the media and revealed his secret.

However, the presidents counsel who appeared on behalf of the President and the Prime Minister told the Courts that his clients were not able to be present in Court due to their busy official schedules.

He also requested the Courts to allocate another day for his client’s case hearing, and not to issue notices again.
