Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka questioned whether the government received the mandate in November to arrest opposition parliamentarians.

MP Fonseka said this while speaking to journalists after visiting MP Ranawaka in remand prison on Saturday.

“Government should reflect and see whether the mandate it received in November was to arrest opposition MPs” he said while highlighting that the arrest of MP Ranawaka is an indication that the rulers of the country had resumed the witch-hunt they carried out before the year 2015 once again.

There are other issues which the government should think of rather than arresting MP Patali Champika Ranawaka, Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka said over the weekend.

Also, he said the real issue is that the motorcyclist who was involved in the accident with former Minister Ranawaka’s vehicle had driven a 1,000cc motorbike, which is banned in Sri Lanka.

He said the motorcyclist had come at a high speed and had hit Mr Ranawaka’s vehicle. (Yohan Perera)

    Now there's a new tale to the intriguing tale. Charge the motorcyclist too and remand him too. He will overnight become a SLPP member immediately to prevent facing the full arm of the law. Oh to be in Sorry Lanka the land of the criminals should be the new national anthem. Cheers, R. J.

    CID who is filling the report will ask the motor cyclist to write and say that Ranawakas jeep reversed and knocked him down.

    Very interesting turn of event. If you read between lines it implies Mr. Fonseka has seen the CCTV video to observe that motorcycle came at very high speed. Ha haha

    Yes, these kind of practices shows how petty we are as a nation to the world. if the government do not think broadly and get the support of every citizen, will never be able bring up the country in all aspects.
