SC issues stay order on Champika Ranawaka's trial

The trial filed before the Colombo High Court against former Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka has been suspended until the 15th of March.

Accordingly, it is reported that the trial has been suspended by issuing a restraining order to the Supreme Court.

This case has been filed against him under the charges of reckless driving in Rajagiriya area in 2016 and causing a serious accident and conspiring to conceal the related evidence.

The court issued this order after considering an appeal petition submitted by Mr. Patali Champika Ranawaka.
