COLOMBO (News 1st) – The hearing of evidence from the prosecutors in the case filed against four defendants including Gamini Senerath, Chief of Staff of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa was taken up at the Permanent High Court Trial at Bar today(February 12). The case was taken up before Judges Sampath Abeyakoon, Sampath Wijeyarathne and Champa Janaki.

Deputy Solicitor General Thusith Mudalige appearing on behalf of the Attorney General said that the hearing of evidence from the prosecutors will conclude today(February 12).

The counsel representing the defendants addressing courts noted that he will make an application that the defendants be acquitted without calling the defence, as the prosecution has been unable to prove the guilt of the defendants beyond reasonable doubt. The counsel stressed that he will be making the application under section 200 of the criminal procedure code.

The case was postponed to February 22nd.
