Sri Lanka’s Attorney General Monday filed indictment in the Colombo Chief Magistrate court charging Sarath Fonseka on forty-one counts that include employing deserters of the Sri Lanka Army, paying salaries and providing lodging facilities.

He was stripped of his medals, promotions and pension as the punishment which was later ratified by Sri Lanka’s President Mahinda Rajapakse.
