Colombo High Court Judge Deepali Wijesundara today ordered Welikada Prison authorities to provide all the facilities that Court asked to be provided on an earlier occasion, to jailed former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka.

The order was given when Fonseka’s lawyer informed Court that although the Court had earlier ordered the prison authorities to provide some facilities including hot water, medicine etc. to Fonseka, the authorities have yet to provide them.

This direction was given when the case related to the harbouring of army deserters was taken up today.

He was sentenced in a court martial to a 30-month jail term in September for his involvement in corrupt military deals during his tenure as Army Commander. (TFT) Pics by Nisal Baduge

    The person who defeated is in jail even without a bit of hot water. The person who supplied lethal arsenal to kill soldiers is given all the luxuries.

    It is dangerous to be right when the system is wrong!

    Cobra Wednesday, 02 February 2011 11:27 AM

    By why of a sudden such an order? As much it will be appreciated by all citizens, it smells fishy!

    Ane manda Wednesday, 02 February 2011 11:42 AM

    Great Sri Lankan with a strong backbone! Heroes in jail. Terrorists in parliament. Miracle of Asia.

    Sue Wednesday, 02 February 2011 12:26 PM

    The problem is there are others higher than the High Court Judge in Sri Lanka.

    Nihal Wednesday, 02 February 2011 02:44 PM

    Is it with immediate effect or do it when you have the time.
