Hundreds turn up for demo

Hundreds of people turned up for the demonstration held near the Hulftsdorp complex in support of Sarath Fonseka.

UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe and deputy leader Sajith Premadasa were among those who attended the protest organized by the Democratic National Alliance (DNA).

Sarath Fonseka was escorted to the court under tight police protection at the time the demonstration was underway.

Earlier a Magistrate had issued an order preventing the protestors from disrupting traffic or inciting violence during the demonstration.
