The Court of Appeal has granted an Interim injunction staying the summons issued by the Jaffna Magistrate Court, requiring former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa to attend before it on 27 September and give evidence in a Habeas Corpus inquiry. The interim Order will be operative until December 3.
