The Supreme Court has allowed to withdraw Sarath Fonseka’s two appeals against the verdict of the white flag case and terminated proceedings on the appeal against the Second Court Martial a short while ago.

Earlier today Lawyers of Fonseka submitted two motions to the Supreme Court. First one was on the three-year jail sentence in the ‘White Flag’ case, which was due to come up for hearing on May 31.

The second one was on the appeal against the second Army Court Martial which sentenced him to a two-and-a-half year jail term over irregular procurements.(SSS)

    Withdrawing the appeal, guilty verdict come in force. That is the man has admitted the guilty verdict and therefore he became convicted. The President only can pardon a convict.

    Let Mr Fonseka rest a while; he has gone through a lot of mental stress.
