National Freedom Front (NFF) leader Wimal Weerawansa said today Minister and Field Marshal, Sarath Fonseka should be removed from his portfolio for making a traitorous statement on former army commander Jagath Jayasuriya just as former minister Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe was removed for violating collective Cabinet responsibility.

He told a news conference that if the government failed to do so one could then assume that the statement made by Mr. Fonseka was its view as well.

“The government should take action against the minister. Former minister Rajapakshe was removed for making a statement against the sale of the Hambantota port. So why should Mr. Fonseka not removed for making a traitorous statement,” Mr. Weerawansa asked.

He said if he had evidence against Mr. Jayasuriya, he should have complained to the police to take legal action against him without making allegations before the whole world and added that several military personnel had been punished on such complaints.

“Channel4 is making allegations against Mr. Jayasuriya. Mr. Fonseka’s allegations would fuel such sinister moves. If there are any complaints, there are ways of taking action against the wrongdoers. It is not his duty or responsibility to make statements which betray the army,” Mr. Weerawansa said.(Ajith Siriwardana)

    Taking disciplinary action under military law is not uncommon. There is nothing wrong what SF said.

    Lion Viswanathan Monday, 04 September 2017 09:02 AM

    You are correct. One wise people like you understands the truth, not rejected junk garbages like Weerawansa.

    This man Wimal became an international joker when he did his infamous fast in front of UN office in Colombo.

    Publis Monday, 04 September 2017 08:47 AM

    Tell him to start another FARCE or file action for spreading rumours.

    AjithZ Sunday, 03 September 2017 03:21 PM

    For once I have to agree with some comments by WW. Yes, SF should not have opened his mouth to the entire world. He should have approached a local authority with facts for internal investigation. We should not open the doors to international organizations or governments to interfere.

    BuffaloaCitizen Monday, 04 September 2017 08:47 AM

    Whether it is international or local organization, if a crime had been committed it is a crime. The crooks in this country take comfort that if it was a local investigation which can be manipulated bcos obviously due to the culture and crookedness of the majority.

    Aussie Sunday, 03 September 2017 03:29 PM

    People like you are responsible for using the soldiers to commit illegal acts and they are now paying for it. In the first place,you guys should be jailed for life.

    Nilhan Jayawardene Sunday, 03 September 2017 03:58 PM

    It is evident that M/R and Gota used jagath jayasooriya against Fonseka and his battle harden Genarals. Jagath jayasooriya is a weak person and he was assignd to vanni hq to do logistic duties only.

    ceylon Sunday, 03 September 2017 05:13 PM

    how can this he say like this .he is under bail for crimes committed during ex government. via DM Android App

    S.K.T. Ranasinghe (Lawyer) Monday, 04 September 2017 08:54 AM

    Before elections for sure he will end up at Welikade Prison.

    Lucky Fernando Monday, 04 September 2017 08:56 AM

    So many cases against this fellow - Forged PP, robbing from vehicles, giving houses to his family members etc., shame of this corrupted man.

    John Monday, 04 September 2017 09:58 AM

    A fine opportunity for the new Minister to open her new role quickly as all the evidence is available without lengthy processes.

    axe Sunday, 03 September 2017 05:52 PM

    Did sir. .. via DM Android App

    smartgent Sunday, 03 September 2017 06:22 PM

    Jagath should be grateful to SF for holding back his accusation until he relinquished his duties as Ambassador to Brazil. If he had said this before, Jagath would have had to face shame upon being called back without completing his tenure of his office overseas. Now he has to prove his innocence for ppl of SL and the world.

    FAKE PATRIOT. Sunday, 03 September 2017 07:19 PM

    SARATH FONSEKA IS FIELD MARSHAL NOW. THEN HE WAS COMMANDER OF COURSE. HE KNOWS PRETTY WELL WHAT HAPPENED IN THE BATTLE THAN THE SO CALLED PUPPET PATRIOTS WHO ROBBED THE WEALTH OF THE COUNTRY USING THE SLOGANS PATRIOTS . via DM Android App

    Haramanis Monday, 04 September 2017 12:11 PM

    FP - YES YOU ARE RIGHT, THAT IS WHY THE FIELD MARSHAL CLAIMED HE WON THE WAR ALL BY HIMSELF - THAT IS WITHOUT ANY HELP FROM ANY OTHER SERVICES OR PERSONS !!!!

    Citizen Perera Sunday, 03 September 2017 07:27 PM

    This guy should be in Welikada Boarding house and not in parliamant.

    K.A. Appuhamy Monday, 04 September 2017 12:20 AM

    Very soon... very soon... that will happen its 100% confirmed.

    Dhammika Sunday, 03 September 2017 09:21 PM

    If SF should be sacked WW should be inside at Welikada.

    punchisingho Monday, 04 September 2017 11:25 PM

    you

    Dr. A.C.B. Jayaweera Sunday, 03 September 2017 11:59 PM

    First of all Weerawansa should be arrested and kept behind bars for creating disharmony making baseless statements against honest politicians and War heroes.

    Kadupol Jothywansa Monday, 04 September 2017 12:04 AM

    Weerawansa bear it in mind, SF is a honest war hero, un-like you fellow hanging unto MR allowed you to loot left and right.

    Samson Samaranayake Monday, 04 September 2017 12:05 AM

    May be Weerawansa is fearing too much as he will be kept at Welikade soon, that is why he is uttering nonsense.

    GH Monday, 04 September 2017 01:12 AM

    Very often you are talking nothing but the truth, be alert, that will lead you to be once again summoned by FCID.

    DJ Monday, 04 September 2017 05:20 AM

    It will be injustice to our bold soldiers and the Army if an inquiry is not held. SF is right to ask for this to protect the good name of the country.

    roger Monday, 04 September 2017 06:52 AM

    why don' you sack yourself for the forged documents given to the immigration dept Mr bigmouth.

    Park Monday, 04 September 2017 07:38 AM

    First of all this Saint Wimal Weerawansa should resign for forging documents and obtaining two passports in different names to open bank accounts abroad to bank the stolen money.

    Dr. A.C.B. Jayaweera Monday, 04 September 2017 08:43 AM

    Hay Weerawana who are you to take decisions? Are you the President or the Prime Minister? you are just a ordinary MP, mind it.

    Aladeniya Kirimathaya Monday, 04 September 2017 08:44 AM

    How about the action against you WW having three forged passports.

    Samson Samaranayake Monday, 04 September 2017 08:46 AM

    Wimal, how many houses (mansions) you have given to your relations when the Housing ministry was under your preview?

    S.T.M. Jabeer (Attorney-at-Law) Monday, 04 September 2017 08:48 AM

    Within the next two months you may have to count the bars of the Welikade Jail, do you know about that?

    Prof. Lal Perera Monday, 04 September 2017 08:50 AM

    first you should be arrested, IGP over to you Sir, this fellow is creating un-wanted problems.

    Diogenes Monday, 04 September 2017 09:43 AM

    Put this man behind bars, first!

    Kadiya Monday, 04 September 2017 12:18 PM

    Capt. Ahab: "There she blows, again"!!!

    Shelly. Monday, 04 September 2017 02:41 PM

    What SF has told JJ was not to play games while he was here. WW has no chance to make use of JJ. via DM Android App
