The Colombo Magistrate’s Court has ordered the extension of the ban on foreign travel, which has been extended even to former Central Bank Governor Ajith Nivard Cabral, until the 15th of December.
That was when the personal complaint filed against the former Governor of the Central Bank by the former Governor of the Southern Province Keerthi Tennakoon was summoned before the Colombo Magistrate’s Court today (24).
Ajith Nivard Cabral also appeared before the court today.
At that time, the lawyers who represented Ajith Nivard Cabral raised initial objections stating that it is not possible to maintain this case and Colombo Additional Magistrate Harshana Kekunawala ordered the plaintiff’s lawyer to submit written speeches related to those initial objections on December 15th.
The personal complaint has been submitted alleging that he has misused public funds while acting as the Governor of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka between 2006 and 2015.
