The verdict on Sarath Fonseka’s appeal against the second court martial sentencing will be given on December 15 by the Appeals Court. The second court martial handed Fonseka a 30 month sentencing which he subsequently appealed.


The Attorney General pointed out that the sentencing had been approved by President Mahinda Rajapaksa and could not be contested in front of the law.


However, Fonseka’s counsel stated that since he was tried under the Army Act the verdict could be contested.


The Appeals Court stated that the verdict regarding Fonseka’s petition will be given on December 15.
