May 12, 2011 : The Court decided to postpone the hearing of the white flag case concerning former army commander Sarath Fonseka, as he was unwell today.
Fonseka was incidentally scheduled to make a dock statement.
The case was called up again today, before a trial at bar, at the Colombo High Court.
Fonseka while making his dock statement said that he is not prepared to betray a country that he liberated from terrorism.
He further noted that he never said that the Defence Secretary had ordered then Brigadier, Shavendra Silva, to shoot LTTE leaders who arrived with white flags, as mentioned in the charges levelled against him.
Fonseka, further revealed to court today that the article published by The Sunday Leader Editor Fredrica Jansz, stating that he had made such a statement, was false.
The former army commander also said that he never earned money in a fraudulent manner during his 40-year tenure in the army, and that he sent his eldest daughter to study overseas, by selling a property he owned in Raddolugama.
Several minutes into Sarath Fonseka’s dock statement , he developed a throat ailment and the judges ordered prison authorities, to show Fonseka to Dr. Vajira Tennekoon.
The case was postponed until May 19.

Now it’s time to Fredrica to give a comment.! You both know what did you talk. And as SF says he has liberated a country from terrorism too. This seems a kiddies game…
when he was a army general it is accepted he would never betray his motherland .But when he became a shit politician
he did n ‘t know what he should have talked.
he was misled by mano & mangala n jvp
What kind of child comments Mr Fonseka gave after this time courts end?He slways suppose to given children comments after courts attending.
Ok, we’ll also ask just a kiddies question from SF..
Who is the president of that country you liberated from terrorism..?!
If you knew that well before, you’ll not be in jail today.
Still SF doesn’t know who’s the president of this country for many years. That’s why he says that he liberated a country. The course of action is this called as self destruction.!
Dear Karuna, you are stringly advised to get a white flag. You will need it soon. The UNSG is on your tail.
Guru if u advise so i ‘ll change the dress into white notional dress as SF did. Then i’ll be a hole white flage myself forever. But i don’t just have a tail as yours to let catch by others.! I’m simply living in open. So there’s no need anyone to come from my back looking for a tails as they have..! i’m a one who not depend no fairy tales & Eveready to face the Death too.!
SF is practical person. He fought the war on land in the battlefield. He did not sit in an airconditioned office in Colombo and fight the war. Ther are many who fought the war from offices in Colombo and using bomb-proof BMW’s for transport to office from home.
In the push to finish the LTT menace form the occupied areas, SF may have indirectly committed excessess. But that happens in all wars. Sri Lanka did not go to war on the Tamils; they fought a war to eliminate the armed terrists under the LTT flag. SL fought a war to ensure the safety of its population consisting of Sinhala, tamil, Muslim and many other people.
Many wars have been fought in the World. 1st and 2nd World wars, India-Pakistan War, Israeli wars, Bay of Pigs, Iraq, Afghanistan and many more. If these wars are investigated, evidence of unlawful activities can be discovered without much effort.
SF is a hands-on person. I would like to give him an opportunity to be a leder of our Nation. I am sure he has the capacity to get things moving and get things done.
What we are doing to him now will make him a bitter and defeated person. Such persons can become revengeful over a period of time.
“Kumbala Olu” gillanam “Kehapan Pooso ” kiwalu
SF can lead only into the destruction..! SF will not be in jail today, if he knew how to lead in political..!
Instead of his leadership, jvp & unp misled him already as an infat..!
