Sunday Leader editor presents note book to Courts

Jun 21, 2010 9:09:59 AM - itnnews.lk

Sunday Leader Editor Fredrica Janz hands over the note book that contains the details of her interview with Former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka.

The newspaper had earlier published an article to the effect that the Former Army Commander had said that the LTTE members carrying white flags were killed based on an order by Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa. The Sunday Leader Editor appeared in Courts today on a order issued earlier.

The Defence Counsels requested for permission to inspect the note book which was handed over to the Court. Additional Solicitor General Wasantha Navaratne Bandara objected to this request. Chief Magistrate of Colombo Champa Janaki Rajaratne ordered the note book to be placed in a protective safe. The CID in a report submitted to the Courts said that a statement has been obtained from Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa in this respect. The Magistrate ordered that Former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka be further remanded.
