Due to the absence of Yoshitha Rajapaksa and his grandmother Daisy Forest, the survey that was due to be conducted on Tuesday September 20, on a plot of land in Mount Lavinia could not take place.
Police have said that details on the matter will be presented to court on Wednesday, September 21.
As per the order issued by the Mount Lavinia Magistrate’s Court – Officials of the Survey Department and the FCID arrived at the location at 9.30 on Tuesday morning, to conduct a survey on a 60 perch land in Mihindu mawatha.
