Galagoda Aththe Gnanasara Thero

The Court of Appeal today rejected Venerable Galagoda Aththe Gnanasara Thero’s application for leave to appeal his sentence.

The Court of Appeal was of the view that there was no legal grounds for the application.

However, the Counsel for Ven. Gnanasara Thera said an appeal will be filed directly at the Supreme Court by way of Special Leave to Appeal.
