General Sarath Fonseka has begun a fast on to death to urge the authorities to allow him to talk to his children over the phone.

 His wife, Mrs. Anoma Fonseka told reporters a short while ago that her husband had been denied the right to speak to his daughters who are currently overseas and therefore he would fast on to death till his demand was fulfilled. 

However speaking to Daily Mirror online Major General Prasad Samarasinghe said the phone facility provided to General Sarath Fonseka was an additional privilege given to him while he is being detained and that the Army is not bound by any court order or any other law to facilitate calls between the General and his daughter.  (YP & GS)

    The bond between father & daughters will never be known by MR, Gota.

    Better die soon. You are a traitor. Commit suicide!

    General Sir,
    For some people of this country, you were hero for a while. A victim of war, you will be my hero till my last breath

    Skype...Huh...A computer for a prisoner...don't think even !.

    Monday, 08 March 2010 06:01 AM

    Dear Sir, This is not the time for a death fast. Sri lanka needs you. Eat well and be physically strong. We have no doubts about your mental strength but, you will need a healthy body to suppot it. Please...please drop this fast and fight the strength by strenght. May God bless you!

    Monday, 08 March 2010 07:18 AM

    Thank You !!!!

    it is a shame that the armed forces do not support this man who once all took orders from. everyone is for money and power. it is not the military that is holding him, it is all president's orders. shame on all of us.

    Really sad... every action has a reaction, watch this and we can see how karma goes to govt..

    Monday, 08 March 2010 07:32 AM

    Yeah!! Praba also had daughters and sons. Osama Bin Laden also has so many children. That is not an excuse for doing wrong.
    Anyways... This seems more like a suicide mission before all the details are revealed about what really happened. ..people should read up more and really try to find out what the truth is.

    Monday, 08 March 2010 07:34 AM

    Dear general,
    YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE JUST ANOTHER PERSON WHO IS UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR CRIMINAL CHARGES.. OFCOURSE DUE LEGAL PROCESS WILL TAKE PLACE ACCORDINGLY.BUT REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE NOT ENTITLED FOR SPECIAL TREATMENT.EVERYONE HAS TO BE TREATED IN THE SAME WAY.

    A Joker, as once himself described the Tamilnadu polititians.

    Sunday, 07 March 2010 06:04 AM

    this is sri lanka and we are sri lankans. I think its time for the President to give freedom for the man he once believed. Skype will cost nothing for the government in allowing him for calls around the world as much as he wants. he is a sri lankan too.

    Sunday, 07 March 2010 06:05 AM

    I am very sorry Sir. My heart goes to you - you are my hero -who saved my country -now langushing in a prison. Cruel World.

    Sunday, 07 March 2010 06:06 AM

    A great man turning into a drama queen. So sad.

    Sunday, 07 March 2010 06:11 AM

    Another 'fast' one by Fonseka the politician. He is fast learning the tricks of the trade. Best thing he should be doing is to cooperate with the military & crime investigators to conclude their findings & bring to courts any charges (if any), more than anything he should help to locate his former aides, fugitives wanted by both local & foreign agencies, including his high flying dollar boy danunna t to face the law & clear his name like a 'man' without hiding & making his own mother a scape goat. What low grade mentality is this by future leaders of SL

    Another "gundu" to please JVP. Somawansa may join this drama next.
