MR Confirms SF’s Jail Term

Sep 29, 2010 11:26:32 PM - thesundayleader.lk

President Mahinda Rajapaksa today (30) granted approval to the recommendation of the second court martial against former Army Commander and DNA Leader Sarath Fonseka.

The second court martial against Fonseka recommended a jail term not exceeding three years after the former Army Chief was convicted on four charges involving irregularities in military procurements.

President Rajapaksa’s approval for the second court martial recommendation was needed to implement the order, as he is the Commander-in-Chief.

Government sources have said that the President confirmed the 30-month jail term imposed on Fonseka after returning on Wednesday (29) from New York after attending U.N. general assembly.
