An army lieutenant attached to the Ratmalana Army Transit Camp was indicted in the Colombo High Court on charges of having provided defence secrets to the LTTE and thus help carry out its attacks.
The Attorney General indicted Lieutenant Ranjith Chandrasiri Perera alias 'army uncle' for allegedly providing vital defence secrets to LTTE suicide cadre Kandavanam Gogulnath and LTTE intelligence Officer Kanagaratnam Adityan to carry out an attack at the Deyata Kirula Exhibition.
It was revealed that the LTTE had carried out a mortar attack at the aircraft in which Defence Secretary Gothabya Rajapaksa and Army Commander Sarath Fonseka travelled to Palaly during the war in the North.
He was also accused of harbouring and giving protection to Gogulnath while knowing he was the suicide cadre. (T. Farook Thajudeen)
