I am not discouraged

30 September 2010 09:58 am - 71     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The whole world knows that the sentence against my husband is an act of political revenge and instead of discouraging me it has strengthened my resolve to fight for the freedom of my husband, MP Sarath Fonseka’s wife Anoma Fonseka told media while ago at a media briefing.

Anoma and the DNA leaders came for the press conference in black as a mark of protests against the endorsement of the sentence against the former Army Commander.

    Rain and lightening are due to natural phenomina ? A good relief to all evil doers. Do more evil.

    In politics any thing could happen in minutes or days so do not worry and time will teach all good lessons.

    DineshPerera Friday, 01 October 2010 06:39 AM

    This has nothing to do with the JVP or the UNP. This is clean and clear humiliation of the true war hero! What goes around comes around!

    In your dreams, may be.

    The Napolean's the Ceazer's all had the same fate, let us hope justice will prevail one day.

    Your sorrow is inconsolable. Nobody on this earth can be happy when their loved ones in jail. There are a lot of tamils undergoing similar trauma in our country. Pray god.

    ASJ Thursday, 30 September 2010 10:36 AM

    Sarath Fonseka fell hook line and sinker for the JVP's propaganda lunatism, and believed that he was above the law of decency. It showed his political immaturity and greed to grab power, but it does not give MR the right to treat a man who dedicated the best part of his life to serving the military and who was dubbed the best commander during the height of war by the defence secretary this way. It is an extremely shoddy treatment of a man who gave so much for his country as a military personal not as a politician.

    This will not happen if your husband had listened to you.

    Managala Thursday, 30 September 2010 10:41 AM

    Madam politics is dirty game when your done you have it all whether you like it or not .you should have known that before otherwise you and your family living peacefully owing respect of all....your husband doesn't need to be in politics to remember him as war hero its in our hearts... whats important is not the power its echo of hearts that sings for patriotism..should have taken one minute to think before presidential Election...

    BOOBAMBA Friday, 01 October 2010 06:56 AM

    Nelson Mandela served imprisonment approx. half of his life time! 30 months is just nothing for a battle-harden war hero like SF, since he does not expect a presidential pardon?

    Prabu Friday, 01 October 2010 07:00 AM

    Thats what has happened. It has come back to SF.

    MK Thursday, 30 September 2010 10:44 AM

    hmmmm. I guess God knew about this decision beforehand, but why dint he strike them down with 7 lightnings before?

    Bonda Friday, 01 October 2010 07:07 AM

    MR and His Govt. are transforming SF into a Mandela like figure.he will be the ppl's choice in the next election.

    You are like our mother to us madam..we are always with you..

    MR has done the biggest mistake of his life.

    Head swells before it burst , never such a thing in the history of this country. Sri Lanka the island of evils, no doubt

    pwc Thursday, 30 September 2010 10:51 AM

    Rain and lightening are due to natural phenomina. There's no connection with God here.

    pwc Thursday, 30 September 2010 10:53 AM

    Yeah, we see that in the last election !!! These people who shout for SF ( only to protest against government) didn't vote for him. So Going gets tough !!!!

    pwc Thursday, 30 September 2010 10:53 AM

    Yes, we see the number of human in the last election.

    Mohamed Ridwan Thursday, 30 September 2010 10:54 AM

    This is the darkest day in Sri Lankan History.
    The cleargy of this country should stand against this.

    Nan Friday, 01 October 2010 07:33 AM

    I knew this was going to end ugly the day ranil made that 1st call to SF from the US...I am truly saddened for our fallen hero..

    LAKPRIYA Friday, 01 October 2010 07:34 AM

    I agree with Mangala. Mr. Fonseka is a war hero. Bur definitely not a political leader.

    This time the so called brilliant plan will NOT work.

    MR lost a golden opportunity.

    Devaka Friday, 01 October 2010 02:36 AM

    Didn't Sarath Fonseka bring this upon himself?

    Perera Friday, 01 October 2010 09:41 PM

    Mrs. Anoma, if you love your husband so much, why won't you seek pardon on his behalf than crying and going behind these JVP idiots please??

    Yehiya-Doha Thursday, 30 September 2010 12:10 PM

    Dear Madam You should proud of your husband. God is there. Entire nation is praying for you family safety.

    Don't cry Somawansa, Tiran, Arjuna & team will lookafter you.

    Ravi Friday, 01 October 2010 03:25 AM

    I think this is the begining for SF. Soon he will be charged for war crime as well.

    sxhabeeb Friday, 01 October 2010 03:26 AM

    Poor sri lankans never understand the reality..... what to do we have to wait for next 5 years to get back true democracy...

    sxhabeeb Friday, 01 October 2010 03:28 AM

    Still SF has power. thats why MR and the clan are afraid of him.

    DHA Thursday, 30 September 2010 12:28 PM

    Same thing would've happened to MR IF SF was in power....!!!

    DHA Thursday, 30 September 2010 12:30 PM

    sltk2004 Thursday, 30 September 2010 02:03 PM

    That is not relevant here. Was it Rani and Somawansa who did the ruling and executed it ?

    gamaya Friday, 01 October 2010 04:52 AM

    3 years is more than enough time for Sri Lankan to forget everything about war and war heroes. Another brilliant plan by MR.

    A dog may be worshiped by other dogs as a God or a king. But always a dog is a dog is a dog.

    Nelson Mandela was never instrumental in any crimes either directly or indirectly during his life time. Poor comparisson.

    Unjust! Unreasonable!! Revengeful!!! fraudulent!!!! That is all involved in this sentence from appointing through hearing to execution.

    Madam, many of us admire your courage and the way you have taken over the political baton from your husband. We wish you every success in your endeavours.
