The verdict as to whether DNA leader Sarath Fonseka would be acquitted or not of the charges of the High Corp financial fraud case is scheduled to be delivered today.
That will be at the Colombo High Court.
When this case was taken up for hearing for the last time on 20th last month Colombo High Court Judge Sunil Rajapaksa had announced that this verdict would be delivered today.
The attorney appearing for Sarath Fonseka had said that the charge that had been the basis for the 30-month imprisonment sentence delivered by the second court martial and the High Corp financial fraud charges put forward by the Attorney General were similar.
Therefore he requested the court to acquit his client from these charges.
Subsequent to considering these submissions the High Court Judge had said that the verdict as to whether respondent Sarath Fonseka would be set free from the High Corp case charges or not would be delivered today.
The High Corp case has been filed charging that a sum of more than 20 million rupees had been fraudulently obtained by submitting false documents when supplying weapons for the army.
