General Sarath Fonseka was not present today at the second court martial hearing at the Navy Headquaters in Colombo as he was in parliament since this morning.
Military Spokesperson Major General Prasad Samarasingha confirmed that the General was not present at the second court martial hearing today but was represented by his lawyers and added that the hearing will resume tomorrow afternoon.
"General Fonseka did not attend the Court Martial but he was represented by his lawyers. The Court Martial will resume again tomorrow afternoon," Major General Samarasingha said.
General Fonseka had been granted permission to remain in Parliament during today's sessions by Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa after the General informed parliament earlier today that a Court Martial sitting had been fixed, despite the Parliamentary sessions. (Daily Mirror online)
