Accordingly, the case will be taken up on December 14, 2016.

In his petition, Gammanpila has claimed that the respondents had violated his fundamental rights, due to his arrest which was form of an arbitrary arrest and detention. He went on to add in his petition that the arrest and his subsequent remand had also violated his basic fundamental rights.

In June, Gammanpila was arrested and remanded after he was accused of using his power of attorney to sell shares of an Australian company. According to Australian Businessman Brayan Shadik, Gammanpila had illegally sold shares worth more than one million Australian dollars that the Australian businessman had invested in Sri Lanka.

In July, Gammanpila was released on bail over the charges, but a travel ban was issued against him by the Fort Magistrate.

    This man has nothing left more to be violated.

    Just remembered the days the bugger was making every effort to lie people that Gotabaya s stage presence to this maliciou politicians political rally – and justfying that it was no mistake. He is talented to manipulate the stupid masses and grab their votes. Buggers should be generated in a test tube allow him this nature. The kind of culture we have to crush from teh bud. I hate the kind of politicians that stuck to their natioalistic agendas to block anything and everything but telling lies. The bugger should be soaked with the blood … though wearing white cloth… sinhalayani nagitiyaw… dont let the kind of buggers to stand on our way.

    What “Fundamental rights?”

    This born cheater should be locked up and the key thrown in the sea never to be found again.

    A very intelligent character no doubt, but stooping down to such low levels only shows what sort of upbringing he has had.

    His parents must also be from very low stock.
