Second Court Martial to be reconvened

Mar 17, 2010 8:00:00 PM - aussieindolanka.com
The second Court Martial assembled at the Navy Headquarters yesterday morning to hear charges of alleged contravention of military procurement procedures against General Sarath Fonseka unanimously decided to adjourn its sittings and refer the composition of the tribunal to convening authorities. The tribunal, considering submissions maintained that although the provisions in the Army Act empower same members of one Court Martial to sit for another tribunal for the same accused, provided alleged prosecuting charges are of different nature, it prefers to be reconvened for the sake of maintaining high degree of transparency and unprejudiced nature. The sittings were therefore adjourned.   www.dailynews.lk/2010/03/18/news03.asp
