Major Piyasiri Perera, who faced charges on providing information to the LTTE, was court-martialled and sentenced to death. The sentence was, however, mitigated to a life imprisonment by President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

The court martial, presided over by Major General Rajitha Silva, which found the accused guilty of the charges, passed the death sentence. The report of the court martial was submitted to President Rajapaksa through the Army Commander.
