The examination of witness statements in the case filed against former President's chief-of-staff Gamini Senarath and three others concluded at the Special High Court today (May 15).

Mr. Senerath who has been named as a respondent along with Piyadasa Kudabalage - former Executive Director of Sri Lanka Insurance Corporation (SLIC) and Lasantha Bandara, delivered dock statements during today's court hearing.

Accordingly, the three-member judge bench of Justices Sampath Abeykoon, Sampath Wijeratne, and Champa Janaki Rajaratne announced that the oral submissions of the accused and the defendants will take place on May 23.
