Gamage allowed to intervene in Geetha’s citizenship case

The Supreme Court today allowed former Minister Piyasena Gamage to intervene in the petition filed over the dual citizenship of Parliamentarian Geetha Kumarasinghe.

The Supreme Court in May extended a stay order on the Parliament seat of Geetha Kumarasinghe.

The Supreme Court issued the stay order on an Appeal Court ruling on Geetha Kumarasinghe’s Parliament seat.

The stay order was issued after Kumarasinghe filed a petition against the Appeal Court ruling which disqualifies her from holding a seat in Parliament as a result of her dual citizenship. (Colombo Gazette)
