The Colombo Fort Magistrate’s Court temporarily lifted the travel ban imposed on Parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa today (12).

Accordingly, Rajapaksa was  allowed to be away from February 24 to May 18. 

The travel ban was imposed following his arrest for allegedly obtaining Rs. 70 million from the Indian firm Krrish Group for the alleged promotion campaign  of football.
