Parliamentarian General Sarath Fonseka filed a petition in Court of Appeal challenging the second Court martial convened on March 17 to try him under Military law.
The petitioner stated that almost all the members of the second court marshal have been dealt with in terms of disciplinary actions during his tenure as the Army Commander.
The petitioner therefore stated that the Military tribunal is bias. The petitioner sought to quash the decision to appoint the second court marshal on March 17 and an order prohibiting the same.
