Court Martial Saga Continues

Aug 21, 2010 3:08:23 PM - thesundayleader.lk

The former Sri Lankan Army chief, Sarath Fonseka, who was convicted on  the 13 by a court martial on charges of indulging in politics while in the Army, faces a second military court over allegations of irregularities in military purchases.
General (retired) Fonseka has been accused of favouring a firm with which his son-in-law is associated in the purchase of certain equipment by the military during his tenure as the Army chief.
The retired General, who unsuccessfully contested against President Mahinda Rajapaksa in the January presidential election, had challenged the validity of the two Courts Martial to no avail.
