Court ruling on Geetha not communicated to Parliament

The ruling by the Court of Appeal on Parliamentarian Geetha Kumarasinghe has not yet been officially communicated to Parliament.

Responding to a question raised in Parliament today, Speaker Karu Jayasuriya said that he has not been informed of the court ruling.

The Court of Appeal yesterday ruled that Geetha Kumarasinghe is not suitable to have a seat in Parliament.

The ruling was based on her dual citizenship. Kumarasinghe however said she will appeal against the ruling. (Colombo Gazette)
