May 31, Colombo: Sri Lanka’s former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka today ended delivering the statement from the dock on the famous ‘white flag case’.
Fonseka took six days to deliver the statement in the case against him. A power failure in the court complex disturbed him as he commenced delivering the dock statement on May 23.
Fonseka said that the lives of his and his family members were under constant threat. He accused that there were plans to assassinate him on the way to court or in the prison.
The former commander who was stripped off of his rank as a general said he was pleased to end the war within three years as he promised and extended appreciation to the heroic soldiers who achieved the victory.
He also thanked the counsels appearing for him.
The three member trial-at-bar headed by High Court Judge Deepali Wijesundara postponed the case to 11 am tomorrow.
