PRECIFAC Rejects Mahinda Rajapaksa's Objection


The Special Presidential Commission (PRECIFAC) of Inquiry to Investigate and Inquire into Serious Acts of Fraud, Corruption and Abuse of Power, State Resources and Privileges rejected the objections raised by Ex-President Mahinda Rajapaksa and decided to continue with its mandate.

Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa's Attorney stated yesterday that the President does not have legal authority to appoint High Court judges to a Presidential Commission.

The Commission therefore does not have a legal authority to summon the former President, the lawyer argued further.
