Military court looms over Fonseka in Sri Lanka

    We Sri Lankans must be ashamed for what is happening in the country. To silence truth. How much of fabricated lies can one come up with? If the Rtd. Gen had committed crime within the time frame of Military law he should have been tried before the nomination papers were handed as a Presidential Candidate. If those who are running this Govt. have nothing to hide. Why not challenge him in the open rather than unlawful imprisonment.

    I am not a supporter of any individual. It is sad to see our country going from bad to worse. We blamed for years the minority of terrorism. Now whats become of us?

    [Fonseka left active service on November 14, 2009 and thus he is under Military law until May 14, 2010, Samarasinghe said.]

    If this is the law in SLA, is there any use that SF may get by ignoring his rights in the case...?

    The ex-army chief contends that he relinquished army office in mid-July 2009 and henceforth acquired civilian status.

    [Twenty five people have come forward to give evidence against Rtd. Gen. Sarath Fonseka]

    It must be noted that there are no formal charges so far either in a military tribunal or civil court.....kangaroo !

    One of the main charges for SF is having political discussions with opposition political parties, and this may be JVP.

    If SLDF behaves without any political entity, the word opposition may not applicable.

    From the other hand, will gov charge him, if he had political discussions with GL Peris, Basil, or Dalas...?
