The President of the Court of Appeal Nissanka Bandula Karunaratne stated yesterday (16) that he would withdraw from the hearing of the writ petition filed  by former President Maithripala Sirisena, requesting the annulment of the summons issued by the Fort Magistrate against him related to a case on the terror attacks that took place on Easter Sunday in 2019.

This was announced when a five-member Court of Appeal bench was called to hear the petition.

The presiding judge stated that he was a member of the Presidential commission that investigated the Easter attacks, so he decided to withdraw from the case related to the incident.

Justice Karunaratne also said that Court of Appeal Judge Sampath Abeykoon will be appointed as a member of the bench to hear the petition.

The petition hearing is scheduled to start today (17).
