Gota’s petition to be discharged from Avant-Garde case rejected

A petition filed by former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa seeking to be discharged from the Avant-Garde case has been rejected.

The Colombo High Court rejected the petition against the case filed by the Bribery Commission.

In November last year the Colombo Chief Magistrate’s Court had also rejected a request to clear Rajapaksa from all the charges in the Avant Garde case. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. I am not a legal expert. I wish to know what would be the next step in this case. Why was Gota not taken into custody and remand? Why was his passport not impounded?
