Gotabhaya to 'witness' in white-flag case

[TamilNet, Thursday, 13 January 2011, 22:06 GMT]
Sri Lankan Defense Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa is to give evidence before the Trial-at-Bar of the Colombo High Court on January 25 in the white flag case. Mr. Rajapaksa is the fourth witness in this case against former commander of the Sri Lanka Army Sarath Fonseka who has been charged for causing 'disrepute' to the Colombo government by making a statement in an interview to the English weekly, the Sunday leader.

Mr. Sarath Fonseka alleged in that interview that Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, in his role as the Defense Secretary, had ordered Major General Shavendra Silva to shoot dead all LTTE cadres who come to surrender holding white flags in the final leg of the Vanni war.

The SL Defense Secretary had denied making the statement.

The Trial-at-Bar has already recorded the evidence of the Editor of the Sunday Leader, Fredericka Janz.
