Former Minister Basil Rajapaksa was granted permission by the Colombo High Court today to travel to the US for medical treatment.
He sought court permission to travel abroad by filing two motions in connection with two cases in which he was accused of.
Considering the motion on the GI pipes case, High Court Judge A.A.R. Heiyantuduwa allowed him to travel to the US between August 10 and September 10.
Meanwhile, High Court judge Vikum Alluarachchi allowed him to travel to the US between August 19 and September 19 after considering the motion on the roofing sheet case. (Farook Thajudeen)
