The Colombo High Court issued notice to the Attorney General Jayantha Jayasuriya today, September 14, calling on him to appear before court on September 20.

Notice was issued when the bail application submitted by the counsel representing former Presidential Secretary, Lalith Weeratunga and former Telecommunications Regulatory Commission Director General, Anusha Palpita was taken up before Colombo High Court judge, Gihan Kulatunge.

On September 7, Lalith Weeratunga and Anusha Palpita were imprisoned after it was proven that Rs. 600 million of the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission was used to purchase and distribute Sil cloths during the period of the Presidential Election.
