Ensure Fonseka gets full pension and rights – JJ appeals to IPU
In a letter UNP MP Dr. Jayalath Jayawardena has requested the Inter Parliamentary Union(IPU) to continue efforts to make sure Former Army Chief Sarath Fonseka a full pension with civil and political rights.
In a letter addressed to the Secretary of the Human Rights Committee of Parliamentarians of the IPU, Jayawardena claims that the pending cases against Fonseka are still being heard before the courts and have not been withdrawn. Further he states that hence the convictions are valid while Fonseka has not been granted civil and political rights.
Jayawardena reminded the IPU that Sri Lanka is a signatory to the UN Covenant of Civil and Political Rights and that the US State Department and the International Community has considered Fonseka as a political prisoner.

Oh ! Jayalath Jayawardena, you are back thanks to the help by President. Otherwise Brits would have taken your trousers off since you didn’t have money to pay for the hospital bill. Your ugly tamil friends in UK didn’t give a shit about you when you were in trouble, did they?
Now fit again, you have already back to the business of complaining against Sri lankan government to forigners. Well done.
Wild animals (except dogs)always behave like that and do not know what “gratitude” means. You are therefore lower than dogs.
