Court orders ex parte trial in case against former President Sirisena

June 24, Colombo (LNW): Earlier this (24) morning, the Colombo District Court ruled for a case involving former President Maithripala Sirisena to proceed ex parte.

The decision was reached as Sirisena did not attend the court proceedings concerning an injunction that barred him from acting as the Chairman of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP).

The legal action was initiated by Montague Sarathchandra, a member of the SLFP’s executive committee.

On April 4, the Colombo District Court had issued an injunction preventing Sirisena from holding the SLFP chairman position.

Following his resignation from the SLFP Chairman role on May 12, the faction led by Sirisena subsequently appointed Justice Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe as the new party Chairman.
