The special court will hear cases involving money laundering, bribery and large financial crimes, dishonest misappropriation of property and criminal breach of trust by public servants.
The government opened the first special high court in July 2018. A third special high court is also expected to be opened by September.
Last year, the Sri Lankan Parliament approved the setting up of three special high courts with 119 legislators voting in favour and 52 against.
