Court issues notice to MR, Anura Yapa, Premajayantha
The Colombo District Court has issued a notice to former President Mahinda Rajapaksa, United People’s Freedom Alliance General Secretary Susil Premajayantha and Sri Lanka Freedom Party General Secretary Anura Priyadarshana Yapa to appear in court on January 26th.
The notice was issued following a case filed by former Kotikawatte-Mulleriyawa Pradeshiya Sabha Chairman Prasanna Solangarachchi for expelling him from the party without a proper inquiry, which makes it removal unconstitutional.
Solangarachchi was removed from the party after he pledged support to the current President Maithripala Sirisena.
SLFP MP Nimal Siripala de Silva also warned that disciplinary action would be taken against defectors of the party.
