The Colombo High Court Padmini N. Ranakwa has directed the Colombo Chief Judicial Medical Officer to submit a medical report pertaining to former Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa before Court before December 7.

However, the State Counsel appearing on behalf of the Attorney General informed Court that the Attorney General objected to the Defenses’ request and moved Court that a JMO report be called for to ascertain Rajapaksa’s health condition.

The Court’s direction was based on ascertaining Mr. Rajapaksa’s health condition prior deciding whether he should be allowed to travel to the US for medical treatment between December 10, 2016 and March 2, 2017. He filed a motion seeking Court approval to go aboard in a case in which he has been indicted on charges of misusing Rs.29 million belonging to the Divi Neguma Department to distribute five million Almanacs with the image of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
