The Permanent High Court today (3) considering the motion filed by former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa on Tuesday (1) seeking permission to travel to Singapore to obtain medical treatment, lifted the travel ban and released his passport allowing him to travel overseas between 9-12 October.
The overseas travel ban was imposed on Gotabaya Rajapaksa over a case filed regarding the misappropriation of Rs. 33.9 million for the construction of the D.A. Rajapaksa Memorial and Museum.
The court is to take the matter for trial continuously from 15 October.
