The Colombo Fort Magistrate’s Court today ordered to lift the travel ban imposed against Hambantota District Parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa in connection with the Krrish Company case.

Fort Magistrate Thilina Gamage made this order taking into consideration a request by the defence counsel.

Meanwhile, the Court sent a reminder to the Attorney General to expedite his legal advice regarding the alleged misappropriation of Rs.70 million connected with Krrish Company. Court was informed that the CID is yet to receive the Attorney General’s advice regarding possible future legal action over the matter.
MP Namal Rajapaksa was present in court over the case filed for allegedly misappropriating Rs.70 million granted by Indian Real Estate Company, Krrish Lanka Pvt. Ltd, for the development of rugby in Sri Lanka. 
The prosecution alleged that Krrish Lanka Pvt. Ltd had granted Rs. 70 million for the development of rugby in Sri Lanka and the amount was given to Ceylon Premium Sports president Nihal Hemasiri Perera.
The initial investigations had been initiated by the FCID where it was revealed that Krrish Company had remitted the money to an HSBC bank account belonging to Nihal Hemasiri Perera and he had later given the money to Rajapaksa on two occasions.
Former JVP parliamentarian Wasantha Samarasinghe had lodged a complaint regarding this incident alleging that the money granted by Krrish Company had been misappropriated by the suspect without utilising them for the real purpose of the company.
