White Flag case re-fixed for Oct. 4th

Sep 28, 2010 12:11:14 PM - itnnews.lk

The Colombo High Court has put off the case filed against former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka with regard to the “White Flag” statement, until the 4th of next month.

Mr. Fonseka was produced in Courts when the case was taken up today. His lawyer told the Court that their client was ill even though he appeared today. He further said that he had taken a large amount of medicine and was indisposed and finding it difficult to remain in Courts. Accordingly, the trial-at-Bar put off the case for the 4th of next month. “Sunder Leader” Editor Frederica Jansz, the first witness in the case was also ordered to appear in Court on that day. Sarath Fonseka is indicted for making a false statement to the “Sunder Leader” newspaper. He had said that LTTE terrorists who approached Government troops to surrender during the Wanni humanitarian operations were murdered on the orders of the Defence Secretary. The Attorney General indicted Mr. Fonseka pointing out that this false statement had impacted state security and also undermined Government troops.
