Three judges appointed to the first Special Court

Three judges have been appointed for the first Special Court scheduled to take up cases related to large scale financial fraud and corruption. The appointments had been made by the Chief Justice.

Sampath Abeykoon, Sampath Wijeratne and Champa Janaki who are serving in the Colombo High Court Complex are the three judges appointed to this Special Court. Work of the new Court is scheduled to begin on the 15th of next month.

The Cabinet recently decided to launch three new Special Courts with the intention of expediting the hearing of large scale fraud and corruption cases. Accordingly the Government took the initiative of establishing these special High Courts based on the recommendation of the Supreme Court after amending the Judiciary Act.
