Gotabaya files revised petition before Court of Appeal

Former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa filed a revision petition before Court of Appeal today seeking to be discharged from the Avant-Garde case.

The Bribery Commission had filed a case against Rajapaksa and seven others accusing them of causing a Rs. 11.4 billion loss to the Government through the Avant Garde floating armoury.

Petitions filed earlier by Gotabaya Rajapaksa seeking to be discharged from the Avant-Garde case had been rejected. (Colombo Gazette)
