Former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka told the second General Court Martial today that the court martial had been set up to put him behind bars and assassinate him politically.


Starting the Defence case, Fonseka told the Court Martial Tribunal that he was not afraid of going to jail to liberate the country from corruption.


Sarath Fonseka is being tried on charges of alleged contravention of military procurement procedure while he was the Commander of the Army and having finished the prosecution case, the defense case was started yesterday.


Before the case began, Judge Advocate Shavindra Fernando had informed the accused Fonseka that he could make a statement from the witness box.


Fonseka had also said, “I have no faith in this Court Martial. I certainly know that I will not get justice from this Court Martial and irrespective of the evidence in this case I will be convicted and jailed,” adding, “I categorically deny the charges that have been leveled against me. I was and I am unaware that Danuna Thilakaratne had anything to do with Hicorp.” The trial will continue tomorrow.

    No one need anything to assasinate him politically. Just give a political speech at a rally. That's all.

    pwc Friday, 10 September 2010 05:08 AM

    Sincere ??? May be sincere to you, but not to the country. Otherwise why didn't he hand over Danuna to the court and why don't he explain about the money he got in election period ????

    pwc Friday, 10 September 2010 05:10 AM

    But he said, he did what GR said like white flag incident

    Why don't you be quite. MR is going to be there for next 20 years.

    country man Friday, 10 September 2010 07:00 AM

    If Rajapaksha is really a hero, hold elections in a caretaker government, not while u r in power. thats what ppl want, not any amendments to the constitution.

    A true General, who served mother Sri Lanka, by risking his life! The Kings are limited to posters and cutouts!
