Colombo: Sri Lanka’s former strongman Mahinda Rajapaksa will file a legal appeal against a court verdict, which temporarily halted him and members of his purported government from functioning as the Prime Minister, Cabinet and deputy ministers, a statement said here on Tuesday. Former President Rajapaksa in the statement said he and his party did not agree with an interim stay order issued by the Court of Appeal on Monday, which prevented him and his party members from holding public office till the case is heard on December 12. “We wish to emphasize the fact that the interpretation of the Constitution and making final determinations in that regard is exclusively vested in the Supreme Court by the Constitution,” Rajapaksa was quoted as saying by Xinhua news agency.
