The Democratic National Alliance (DNA) today (11) said that its leader retired General Sarath Fonseka has not received a direct invitation to join the UNP.
Anoma Fonseka told a press briefing today that she had inquired into the media reports that there had been an invitation to General Fonseka to join the UNP and that the General had not expressed much interest in the matter.
The DNA also objected to the continuation of sittings of the first court martial against General Fonseka during court vacations, which is on from August 9 till 13.
DNA parliamentarian Anura Kumara Dissnayaka said that all legal inquiries have ceased till after the vacation and that the court martial should also resume once the vacation ends.
The military has however said the court marital inquiry would continue and any decision to suspend it would be taken by its Chairman.
The first court martial is to resume sittings tomorrow (12).
