No threat to Fonseka’s life - AG informs court

[TamilNet, Saturday, 12 December 2009, 01:58 GMT]
Sri Lanka’s Supreme Court Friday fixed further inquiry into the Fundamental Rights petition filed by General Sarath Fonseka for December 17. The FR petition came up for inquiry Friday before a three-member bench comprising Chief Justice Asoka de Silva, Justices Gamini Amaratunga and P. A. Ratnaike. General Fonseka has been nominated as the common presidential candidate.

The petitioner has sought the court to order the Defence Secretary, Inspector General of Police and the Defence Minister to provide adequate security to him and to order the government to allow him to stay in his official residence.

Attorney General Mohan Peiris forwarded the Security Assessment Report on General (retd) Sarath Fonseka as instructed by the court on the earlier date. The report said there was no threat to the life of petitioner Fonseka and therefore his FR petition should be dismissed accordingly.
