UN war crimes report to be produced in White Flag case

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 04 May 2011, 12:21 GMT]
The Colombo High Court Wednesday issued notices on two more witnesses cited by the defense to be present at the next date of trial in the controversial white flag case in which the former army commander Sarath Fonseka has been indicted by the Attorney General, legal sources in Colombo said. Fonseka was charged for causing disrepute to the government by giving an interview to a English weekly alleging that the Defense Secretary Gotabahaya Rajapakse had ordered the army to shoot all LTTE cadres, who come to surrender holding white flags at the last leg of the Vanni war, dead.

The two new witnesses cited by the defense are Sri Lanka’s Foreign Ministry Karunatilaka Amunugama and ruling party national list parliamentarian Rajiv Wijesinghe.

The Court further directed the Foreign Ministry Secretary Karunatilaka Amunugama to produce the UN Experts panel report in court on the next date of trial that is fixed for May 12.

The court put off the further inquiry into the case on submission by the junior counsel of the defense that Nalin Ladduwahetty, senior counsel has gone abroad on a private trip.
