Mar 27, Colombo: A court in Sri Lanka today granted permission to former Army Commander, Democratic Party Leader Sarath Fonseka to proceed with his defamation case against a deputy minister of the government.

Mount Lavinia District Judge Gihan Chandraranawana has granted leave to proceed with Fonseka's defamation case against Deputy Minister Sarana Gunawardena demanding compensation of Rs.1 billion, local Daily Mirror reported.

Fonseka has filed the defamation case against Gunawardena for allegedly stating that the female LTTE cadre disguised as a pregnant woman carried out the suicide attack on Fonseka to take revenge from him for jilting her and not for the sake of the war.

The deputy minister has allegedly made this statement while participating in a political programme in a private television channel.

The district judge has issued notice on the deputy minister to appear in court on May 22.
