Justice Vijith Malalgoda has entirely denied allegations leveled against him by a website that he accepts dollars from the Rajapaksas in a bid to influence the judgments and decisions he makes, Ada Derana court reporter says.
The observation was made when the Writ Application filed against former Tamil Tiger rebel leader Shanmugam Kumaran Tharmalingam alias Kumaran Pathmanathan (KP) was taken-up for hearing at the Court of Appeal this morning (28).
“I totally deny these allegations,” Justice Malalgoda has said.
Meanwhile, the Attorney General’s Department submitted a comprehensive report with respect to the Writ Application, Ada Derana reporter added. Earlier, the Court informed the AG to submit the investigation report on KP who was one time LTTE’s arms procurement wing leader and ‘international secretariat’.
The Court on February 05 had also issued an Interim Order and directed the Controller General of Immigration and Emigration to prevent KP from leaving the country.
The Writ Application was filed by Parliamentarian and Propaganda Secretary of the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), Vijitha Herath. The respondents for the case include the Army Commander, Inspector General of Police, and Controller General of Immigration and Emigration Department.
