The Colombo Chief Magistrate’s Court today fixed April 6 to deliver its order in connection with a private complaint filed against former Central Bank Governor Ajith Nivard Cabraal.
Meanwhile, Colombo Additional Magistrate Harshana Kekunawala further extended its order preventing former Central Bank Governor Ajith Nivard Cabraal from leaving the country until April 6.
Former Southern Province Governor Rajith Keerthi Thennakoon had filed a private complaint in terms of Section 136(1)(a) of the Code of Criminal Procedure Act seeking legal action against Cabraal for committing alleged offences while he was serving as the Governor of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka.
The petitioner said Cabraal is responsible for the country’s crippling economic crisis since he took measures to pay a 500 million US dollar sovereign bond. Cabraal had filed objections challenging the maintainability of the case.
