Colombo University Senior Lecturer Dr Prathibha Mahanama Hewa yesterday said Courts Martial rulings are accepted all over the world including the United States and Canada. Dr Hewa stressed that Courts Martial are part of law in the US Constitution.
Two top ranking military officers in India are being tried in Courts Martial and no one raises questions why they were being tried in Court Martials, he said.
He said that politics should be differentiated from law when the verdict given by the Second Court Martial against Fonseka is taken into consideration.
He said that Fonseka was accused of misappropriation of funds and he was found guilty by the second Court Martial.
