Attorney General Yuvanjan Wijayathilake was issued a notice by the Appellate Court today to appear before the Court on February 5 in relation to the writ application that was filed by JVP Mp Vijitha Herath against top LTTE leader KP who was receiving patronage of the Rajapaksas.
Through the writ, the JVP sought an order to arrest Kumaran Pathmanathan aka KP and for the Court to probe into his assets and on the reasons behind why he received immunity under the Rajapaksa regime.
The writ application was filed on January 18 but was heard today.
It has been reported that the vast wealth accumulated by KP through his dealings for the LTTE and a fleet of ships under his name was taken under the control of the Rajapaksas when he was taken into custody. He has however remained silent regarding these claims.
