The Colombo High Court today issued summons on 20 witnesses to the ‘white flag’ case involving former Army Chief General Sarath Fonseka and will begin daily hearings into the case from 27 September.
When the case was taken up for hearing today the High Court judge ordered that witness number one to twenty appear in Court to testify in the case where it was alleged that General Fonseka had claimed in an interview that unarmed LTTE cadres were shot dead by the army when they surrendered with white flags during the final stages of the war.
The judge also instructed the relevant officials to ensure the right of General Fonseka to his Parliamentary privileges.
