The Democratic National Alliance (DNA) is to lodge a protest with the Commonwealth if detained Member of Parliament and leader of the DNA General Sarath Fonseka is not permitted by the Sri Lankan government to attend the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association conference in Nairobi, Kenya.

DNA General Secretary Tiran Alles, speaking to Daily Mirror online said that General Fonseka had every right to attend the conference scheduled for September as a Member of Parliament as he shared the same rights as other parliamentarians.

Alles said, “If the judiciary said he can’t travel out of the country that’s another matter. His name has been submitted by the opposition and if the parliament denies this, then in the future too the government will decide who travels to summits and that is not healthy.”

Two MP's each from the Government and Opposition are to attend the summit. The United National Party’s (UNP) MP Earl Gunasekara and the DNA's MP General Sarath Fonseka, who is currently under Army custody, were proposed from the opposition. (Daily Mirror online)

    Should allow him to leave the country as then it is easier for UN to get the evidance. And then he can use his (unwanted) green card

    THE RIGHT STEP. this nonsense of harassing the Valiant General should be stopped. He earned his reputation by shedding his BLOOD for his motherland. A True Fighter and a Fighter to the Last.

    Good work Tiran, but ensure that no one tries to surround the Commonwealth Meeting Hall like some foolish people tried to do to the UN office in Colombo

    Our current team seems clueless.

    Mr. Alles, ... better that you get locked-up if he does not return.

    Why not send the good General to the 'UN Panel' (where he's much needed) and send a knowledgeable parliamentarian to the Commonwealth meeting?

    A politician needs the ability to foretell what is going to happen tomorrow, next week, next month, and next year. And to have the ability afterwards to explain why it didn't happen."
