    Millions of true patriots, of this country, are silently mourning for SF. We wait for the day of true judgment!

    I genuinely feel sorry for her ... and the family. A person who brought relief to the masses, by almost sacrificing his life, is now languishing in a cell, for some trivial 'crime.'

    There will not be no justice, for the hero Sarath Fonseka.

    Anoma has come more into the LIMELIGHT than her controversial husband Sarath. Will Sarath abandon her, one of these days?

    We are with you Madam. You are taking things on the correct track.

    In the long run, justice will prevail.

    Some people are born bootlickers, some fight for their rights. We are with you, Mrs. FONSEKA.

    There is no doubt about it. Mrs. Fonseka's steadfast defense of her husband, based on principles of justice, resorting to every conceivable democratic measure, while mobilizing mass support, makes her a truly admirable lady, of no mean character. She has, in her own right, amply shown genuine leadership qualities. Also, her actions speak volumes of a cause ... worthy of our support.

    Yeah... Now he is licking JVP boots... earlier people liked his boots...

    This goes to Leslie, you are ignorant of basic law. Innocent untill proved guilty. Or do you still live in the stone age? It is a disgrace to have people of your ilk amongst us.

    My heart goes out to Mrs. Anoma Fonseka. I am praying that justice and truth will prevail. May God comfort her and strengthen her at this time which only He could do.

    Tuesday, 16 March 2010 12:51 PM

    Anoma, you are only making a fool of her self. Your husband is a disgraced person and you need to come to terms with reality!

    This country has come to such a low ebb that even the laws of the land are being perverted and twisted. Shocking and sickening.

    Sarath Fonseka is a noble man who was prepared to sacrifice is life for the sake of the country. Those people who support MR's action is a disgrace for the mankind.

    Tuesday, 16 March 2010 01:55 PM

    That is the correct approach. Challenges must be made according to the law of the land and not use innocent people as "pawns or trade ins" to gain political gains or fulfill personnel vendetta.

    Yes our LADY, we are with you, Genaral & JVP, who try to re-bulid our country.
