Sarath Fonseka appears in court on ‘white flag issue’

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 28 September 2010, 20:36 GMT]
The trial-at-bar in Colombo High Court Tuesday re-fixed the inquiry for October 4 and 5 in the case against former Commander of the Sri Lanka Army Sarath Fonseka. Fonseka is charged for disclosing military secrets that the Defense Secretary Gotabaya Rajapakse had issued orders not to spare any of the LTTE cadres surrendering with white flags in the final battle and that the surendees should be shot dead.

The accused Sarath Fonseka was present in court Tuesday under tight security after the Naval Medical Officer submitted a medical report that he was fit to attend courts. He did not appear in court Monday as he was indisposed.

Court further ordered the publisher of the Sunday Leader Lal Wickrematunge and its editor Frederica Janz to be present in courts on the next date of hearing.

Fonseka was charged in the case after he gave a controversial interview to the Sunday Leader.

Nalin Ladduwahetti, Counsel for Mr. Fonseka, informed the court that though the court had directed to hand over a photocopy of the note book used by Editor Janz from the interview with Fonseka, only 30 pages had been handed over.

He said there were more than 80 pages in the note book.
