International observer to watch cases against former Sri Lanka Army Commander

May 21, Colombo: Sri Lanka’s opposition sources say that a special representative of the Inter Parliamentary Union will arrive in Sri Lanka soon to observe the judiciary proceedings against former Army Commander of Sri Lanka, Sarath Fonseka.

The representative of the Inter Parliamentary Union is learnt to be Mark Trowell, Q.C. of the Western Australia Bar Association, informed sources say.

Trowell is an international observer experienced in observing similar cases such as the trials against Anvar Ibrahim of Malaysia.

The representation is believed to be a result of the lobbying by the opposition regarding the rights of the ex-parliamentarian Fonseka.
