The case filed against Basil Rajapaksa and Thirukumar Nadesan under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act in connection with the construction of a huge house in Malwana was taken up in the Gampaha High Court today (07).
The main government witness in the case, Muditha Jayakody, the architect who built the house, was cross-examined today. He had earlier told the court that everything he had said before the FCID, as well as the lower court, was untrue.
President’s Counsel Saliya Peiris, appearing for the accused Thirukumar Nadesan today, cross-examined Muditha Jayakody and asked him about the documents he had applied for to recover the income tax he had paid. He was speechless there, unable to answer.
Legal experts are of the opinion that there is a tendency in this case to release the accused without calling the next hearing, which is likely to be January 21.
