The present Army Commander who has been named a Respondent in the petition filed by Sarath Fonseka challenging his removal from the Parliamentary seat has been exonerated from the case.
The Supreme Court issued the order. The current Army Commander Lt. Gen. Jagath Jayasuriya was named in the petition as a Respondent. The Counsel who appeared on behalf of Army Commander submitted that he should be exonerated as no relief is expected of him. The Supreme Court acceded to the request. The hearing of the petition continues.
