The Democratic National Alliance (DNA) is to file contempt of court charges against the appointment of a second Court Martial against General Sarath Fonseka to face charges of fraudulent activity.

DNA member Anura Kumara Dissanayaka told reporters a short wile ago the appointment of a new Court Martial violates a Court order issued last week to maintain the statuesque with regard to the General. 

President Mahinda Rajapaksa has substituted a fresh convening order by nominating three new senior Army officers to the second Court Martial (CM), expected to hear charges against General Sarath Fonseka, now in military custody.

Major General M.P. Peiris RWP RSP USP ndc psc (President-CM), Major General S.W.L Daulagala RSP USP and Major General M. Hathurusinghe RSP IG are to sit for the tribunal, fixed for April 6th  afternoon. Rear Admiral W.W.J.S Fernando is to serve as Judge Advocate.

The second Court Martial, expected to hear charges on General Fonseka’s contravention of military procurement procedures adjourned its sittings on March 17, 2010 preferring it to be reconvened. The first Court Martial will resume its sittings earlier on April 6, 2010.  (KB)
