Sarath Fonseka will be released soon: President Mahinda Rajapaksa
Jailed former Army Commander of Sri Lanka Sarath Fonseka, who led the Eelam war IV against the Tamil Tigers and helped win it, is set to be released shortly.
“We will release him soon,” Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa told The Hindu on the sidelines of a function organised to launch a book, Gota’s War, here on Monday.
Mr. Rajapaksa said the person who tried hard to secure Gen. Fonseka’s release, Member of Parliament Tiran Alles, was out of the country.
Mr. Alles was in the U.K. and he was cutting short his visit to reach Colombo on Tuesday, a source said. “He [Mr. Alles] has to get the credit for the release [of Gen. Fonseka],” the President said.
Mr. Alles had been liaisoning with the President over the past many months. He had been a close associate from the time the former General ran for office. Mr. Alles was in touch with the President from the U.K.
Earlier, the government had insisted that Gen. Fonseka or his family members appeal to the President for pardon.
Gen. Fonseka, soon after leading the Army to victory against the LTTE in May 2009, tried to cash in on his popularity. He ran for the office of President in 2010, against his one time Commander-in-Chief Mr. Rajapaksa. He suffered a crushing defeat. He was arrested in February. He was convicted by both military and civil courts and stripped of his military ranks in August 2010.
Gen. Fonseka was recently moved to a hospital for treatment amid some drama over the choice of the hospital. Finally, the government agreed to his choice.
Meanwhile, the Colombo High Court on Monday postponed till June 7 a case filed by the Attorney-General against Gen. Fonseka for harbouring Army deserters during the presidential election in 2010.
Gen. Fonseka’s counsel told the court that he was undergoing treatment and requested postponement of the case.

u r wrong Aziz
until and unless the piggy faces are here, this country can not stand and they think they are owning this land.
Some slavers still have been working and giving ass to foreign country,arrive here and popup some comments discriminating peoples around but those are will be published by the editor of this web site.But at th e same time if we people did even a single comment, they never reach to the publics.
this is my own and isolated instance.
what we anticipate is to live in amity in this country but some vicious piggy faces here collapsing for the discriminations.
Ashq, who are the piggy faces? Who are the owners of the land? Why are you throwing mud at the sinhala buddhists? Don’t you like to live in peace and harmony? Of course, the majority in Sri Lanka are sinhala buddhits. So we own the assets of the land. Follow the dead Bin Laden if you have nothing better to do.
This is a disaster. Mr Fonseka is a threat to the capitalist society. he is not a democracy man. If he come out, he will upset the peace. It is only socialist policy that can build the country and its people. The old socilaist parties are dead; all the top leaders there have lost their teeth. Only new socialist party like FSP can challenge the Rajapaksa. But where are they now? After beauty convention with red flags many, the FSP found its leader is not even a citizen of Sri Lanka. That is foreingn interference in internal matters. But Fonseka is funeral news. He is Army commander and he want army way to run the country that is not vote for common people.
Piggy faces are so…!!!
Then what about the Bull faces & Goat faces…???
The Animal Killer faces…???
yes of course we need harmony, why not.Iam asking you chumpa who gave you ownership to this land of asset??Have you got entire lands authorized land of registration with the tile deeds?
ha ha very funny, seek and get atleast 6′ for your grave Mr chumpa.
The vicious and gruesome man who led and ruled from north to east end for three decades,approxmately 3/1 of sri lanka, eventually what did they gained? in the name of elam war ultimately they had not even got a single and seperate grave for each,hope you know that.
They praised them self by saying this is eelam land so get out from here and seek some other places to live and most of them were dead while on the way especially very older poeple.those Diasporas living peacefully where they sheltered.
now this is the point.
Those who chased these diasporas with in 24 hours time line with out any humanity from north to east end,now being (tamil elam) diasporas in their own registered lands with intervention of forces with out any as you said peace and harmony.
ha ha ha by the way this is very funny eni?
You got it mr.?
Now where is the elam and chasers ? ha ha ha very funny, they are now under the their ethics foot (buried every where in the war zone).just think. ho ho.
there is a proverb bro.
if it is written that you gain some thing you will definitely get it,but if it is not,intentionally or with immense effort you will not gain that whatever the effort and the motivation you take is useless.
So dont make further dreams to gain and get the owner ship to these erasable and destroyable lands.
Try and get some efforts to get atleast 6′ for your own use in future.
Moreover I would say that we are not behind those killers as you said din laden.You foolish people especially those who believe silly clay maker’s statues and arts.Indians always extremely foolish poeple they only make you people foolish.
we are unique and no backwords,rapidly get assistance from the one who sent us.
No fears and no tears whoever it is.
By the way, I am a woman and not a man like you with a pair of soft nuts.
Inshallaah…! NO God or Dog who send beings to the world though the Bloody Fool Blind Folk have just such a “belief”..! Such Influence of unknown god is nothing more than a blind Myth of you bloody fools. It’s just a “Blind Belief” of fools & not reasonable or practical thing..! If there’s such a god influence then that “Bloody Mad God” is the Evil Doer who responsible for every fault done by you fooooool believers.! Because those faults won’t be happen if that mad god didn’t send you fooool folk here…!? Isn’t it or not…??? Have any answer from you any fooool god believers for that question…??? By the way you mind that every one of you only be entitle to go to hell as a result of killing Cows & Goats even as a practice by your evil religions…! Then don’t be fear of loosing land because you’re the main landlords & owners of the Great Hell…! Inshalla…. after your death you’ll owe your own portion in the HELL…
Sarath Fonseka is the unique war hero of the commons, who had really won the Presidential Election, although he was denied the position. We will make him the President of Sri Lanka to rule the country with good governance.
I think Amda has got immense blood preasure after seeing my comments above. cool down PF.PF iam assuring you that, you people H&B can not even pluck a single hair by dominating us.
ha ha the shameful thing is that, there is a story name “Two Silly Goats” but a tiny change instead of Goats, Pigs is the most suitable as for you people H&B.
especially for you Piggy Face.
Animal killers may have running animal blood in their bodies. So, they tend to act as mad animals without sense. That’s why Bin laden gave Animal Religious Order “fatwa” to kill humans & it led to his own end.
Ashiq you follow the same religion which leads to your self undoing.
Crabs are thrilling when they feel warmth in cooking pot & what will happen next…??? You mad also say, ha ha for now till you loose your blood pressure….!
yes we are animal killers of course but you people have been eating those shit flesh of piggy’s and bedding with others especially ur house maids
There’s no discrimination fact between the folks of “yours” & “mines” but this’s between the folks of “Good & Bad”.
The evil act is the killing & not the eating. Only the real Buddhists may avoid killings reasonablly but anyone who kill living beings is an EVIL DOER despite the religion. They entitle to be condemned & go to hell as a result of evil acts.
Bedding with others also does anyone despite being discriminated to folk of “yours” or “mines” & the same theory above applies to such evil doers too.
This Ashiq cannot be a Sri Lankan ! Leave housemaids away from this as they all are Sri Lankans. Have you heard that there will be MALE animal at forefront, to make a female used at the opportunity, abuse, molest to make dirty-charactered, ill-famed and disreputed and at last to denegrate and insult the same victim as a “Whore” as he himself is a saint with clean hands ! Please respect female as they are representing “weaker sex” of the society ! Irrespective of religion, everybody whether male or female, living-beings do commit mistakes ! A male whoever born and brought up BY HIS MOTHER, instilled with great thoughts of goodness and socio-ethics from his birth and family background to respect Females, will never comment in this way ! Leave your religious views away for a while, to respect Females as even for that you need GUTS BEING A MACHO to convince the society that YOU ARE A GOOD EGG ! I know personally, here where I live, Muslims say it’s “HARAM (SIN)” to go to bed with a female from a different religion of theirs and condemn kissing and bikini scenes in Hindi films as “HARAM” while having physical relations with several females at the same time during their married life ! Religion will not make you sacred or highly nobel by insulting some other race, group or community but the goodness in your thoughts with a well-visioned attitude towards good and bad ! Religion offers a lot of excuses to justify people’s undone to appease and satisfy themselves! Even, so called world’s best , number one and most highly nobel religion, that you are born-brought up and hailing from, IT ALL SHOWS HOW CHEAP YOU ARE IN YOUR VISION, IN THE WAY OF THINKING AND BEHAVIOUR !!! Be up to the point being logical, instead of vomiting everywhere as your up-bringing clearly shows the left-outs and indigestive remains of ” RACISM AND EXTREMISM ! ” May Allah Bless You in Whatever You Are Engaged In !!”
