AG appears on behalf of SF at courts!

The Supreme Court yesterday (14) re-fixed for support on May 17, a petition filed by retired Army Officer and former Southern Provincial Councilor Ajith Prasanna challenging the appointment of Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka as a Member of Parliament.

The petitioner had sought an order in the nature of a Writ of Quo Warranto declaring that the Democratic Party leader Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka is disqualified and from being elected a Member of Parliament.

The petitioner has also objected to the Attorney General appearing in courts on behalf of the Field Marshal.

The Supreme Court bench had ordered the defendants to file counter objections if any.
