Additional Solicitor General President’s Counsel Yasantha Kodagoda was sworn in as President of the Court of Appeal today (28 March) before President Maithripala Sirisena at the latter’s residence.

Kodagoda’s appointment, though unanimously approved by the Constitutional Council on 24 March, is mired in controversy.
