Judges appointed for the second special high court

Three high court judges have been appointed to the second permanent high court at-bar to hear high profile financial frauds and corruption cases. Chief Justice Priyasath Dep has made the appointments.
The special trial-at-bar will comprise high court judges R Gurusinghe, Amal Ranaraja and Shashi Mahendran. The cabinet of Ministers had granted their approval for the establishment of three special high courts with an aim to speed up cases related to mass scale, corruption and financial misappropriation.
The new courts were established by amending judicature bill under the recommendations of the Supreme Court. The first special high court is in operation currently.
