State granted permission for oral submissions

‘White Flag’ Trial-at-Bar

A ruling, whether extracts of the speech made by former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka, used in a news bulletin of Derana TV, can be accepted as evidence in the ‘White Flag case’ before the High Court Trial-at-Bar, has been fixed for December 16.

State Counsel Dilan Ratnayaka requested permission be granted for oral submissions regarding the matter, when the case was taken up this week. However, Defence Counsel Nalin Ladduwahetti objected, as permission had been granted to make written as well as oral submissions earlier.
The Bench granted permission for the Prosecution and the Defence to submit further written submissions on the matter earlier.

Fonseka is charged for a statement made to The Sunday Leader newspaper that Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa ordered not to spare surrendering LTTE cadres.

The High Court Trial-at-Bar Bench comprises Deepali Wijesundara (President), W.T. M. P.B. Warawewa and M.S. Razeen.
