HC Postpones White Flag Case

Apr 1, 2011 10:46:52 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The Colombo High Court has today postponed the hearings of the controversial “White Flag” case against former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka till April 20.

The three judge bench headed by High Court Judge Deepali Wijesundera has decided to postpone the hearings due to the main respondent in the case, Fonseka, suffering from ill health.

The High Court has said the hearing will be postponed until Fonseka was able to attend court sessions.

The “White Flag” case involves an alleged comment made to a weekly national newspaper by Fonseka during last year’s Presidential election campaign where he had said the Defence Secretary had ordered the shooting of LTTE leaders who were trying to surrender during the final stages of the war in 2009.
