By Colombo Telegraph –
The Registrar of the Court of Appeal has been ordered to provide former Army Chief and Common candidate at the 2010 Presidential election, Sarath Fonseka, with a certified copy of the document pertaining to his release from prison.
The Counsel told the Court the document pertaining to the release of the former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka is necessary for the Writ Petition filed against his expulsion from Parliament. The hearing on the case was put off to 13 December.
A Bench comprising Judges of the Court of Appeal, Sisira de Abrew and Sunil Rajapaksa, made the directive to the Registrar of the Court of Appeal following the submission made by Counsel Saliya Pieris on behalf of the former Army Commander, yesterday.
“I still don’t know the details of my release. All I was told was to bring my bag of belongings and come outside. They didn’t tell me anything else. I think that in some ways I am still a prisoner in Welikada. The only difference is that I am outside those walls. Other than that I have not seen a single letter. In fact, when I was leaving Welikada Prison, I didn’t even sign a book saying I was leaving to go home,” the former General told last week.
