Fonseka arrested under military act

General Sarath Fonseka was arrested under the Military Act 57 (1) where even a retired military officer can be taken into custody if he had divulged military secrets or acted against the government while serving in the army, Government defence spokesman Minister Keheliya Rambukwella said.

He also said that the former army commander was arrested only yesterday as investigations into his conduct while in the army was launched only after he retired from military service.
