SF denied US visa?

21 June 2016 10:08 am - 33     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The visa application forwarded by Regional Development Minister Field Marshall Sarath Fonseka to visit the United States has been rejected, diplomatic sources said.

It is said that his visa application to the US was rejected last year too when he requested to visit his daughters.

It is known that some incidents that happened when he held the post of Army Commander might have resulted in the rejection process.

However, his media secretary Mahinda Kumara denied speculations over his visa denial .(Sujith Hewa Julige)

    Thank you USA

    Nice. The US has a policy and no war criminals are welcome just because they change the coat. Well done Uncle Sam, you have sent the message nice and clear.

    This is how you all are treated by them despite yours kneeing before them! Unless SL find ways to boost its' economy as how MR government did, USA will not come to rescue you from the abyss though you lick their boots.

    The USA knows best. There is no fumes without a fire. With SF travelling on a Diplomatic passport, the US government would be in a fix, so the best thing they could do is to deny him a visa and rightly so.

    Good, otherwise tax payers will be charged for first class airfare and all the expenses for his family. I dont see any difference to former KING

    I thought he was a green card holder??

    annoyed Tuesday, 21 June 2016 11:46 AM

    Can you pls describe how MR developed SL economy?

    Alahakon Wednesday, 22 June 2016 02:31 AM

    Yes. Reject SL visa requests by US people

    Dennis Tuesday, 21 June 2016 11:56 AM

    I cancelled his green card for the sake of his mother land.

    BuffaloaCitizen Tuesday, 21 June 2016 12:15 PM

    Excellent move. This should apply not only to MaRa and his clan but also to LTTE members who are living and now fondled by the GOSL.

    Ranil Wednesday, 22 June 2016 04:52 AM

    The ignorance of the conspiracy theorists is always entertaining. Having once applied for and been a green card holder, he will never qualify for a non immigrant (visitors) visa since he has declared his intention of being an immigrant. Visitors visas are for people who can prove they do not intend to stay on in the US.

    Sir, pls compare GDP, dynamic efficiency, per capita, and other ratio, Pareto efficiency, distributive efficiency and many more ratios as you wish.

    Yes the US is the most biggest war criminals in the world they killed so many people in Iraq Syria Palestine and they also put nuclear bomb to Japan so no one is talking about US because they are superpowers' bull shit. First our country should dwny the US citizens visa.Look how many murders is going on why their policies are different and bad and also Donald trump he is racist bastard trying to become US president I don't think he will get much votes.

    Did he ask for a a super luxury jet to travel ?

    rosebud Tuesday, 21 June 2016 01:22 PM

    US is also guilty of war crimes. Pot calling kettle black via DM Android App

    Thanos Tuesday, 21 June 2016 02:11 PM

    But US citizen GR has no problem going the US. For the US war-crimes applies only to non-citizens. Don't forget the US rejected the ICC.

    Thanos Tuesday, 21 June 2016 02:16 PM

    GR is a US citizen. He has no problem going to the US. If US prosecutes him then potentially all US citizens and leadership past and present responsible for crimes committed abroad can be prosecuted.

    Kalu Albert Wednesday, 22 June 2016 08:56 AM

    Worst war criminals are in the US

    Sharon Wednesday, 22 June 2016 09:41 AM

    Well said...

    "The USA knows best"? ROFL

    lion Tuesday, 21 June 2016 03:41 PM

    This is shows clearly who was the man behind wining the war.

    Jimmy Tuesday, 21 June 2016 04:03 PM

    Visa was denied because he ordered a Car for Rs.70 Mn.

    Darm Tuesday, 21 June 2016 04:03 PM

    Well said!

    Siri de Alwis Tuesday, 21 June 2016 04:08 PM

    For me the Americans are the biggest war criminals. They even used atom bomb against the innocent Japanese civilians. What about millons of Viet Namese killed for no reason.Siri

    dulan Tuesday, 21 June 2016 04:25 PM

    Then they should not allow Gota or arrest him on arrival

    Ranaviru Friday, 24 June 2016 02:06 AM

    Only useless fellows from Sri Lanka get the visas to go to USA. If you have done worthwhile service to the country , then you will not get a visa to USA.

    Onlooker Tuesday, 21 June 2016 05:13 PM

    SF is in parliament too without visa. People send him if a visa to enter there.
