The international Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has been approached by the family of General Sarath Fonseka to find out where he is being held and establish contact with him.

ICRC spokesperson Sarasi Wijeratna, speaking to Daily Mirror online, said that following the request by the family the organization is in the process of liaising with the concerned authorities and the family.

General Fonseka was arrested by the military police yesterday and according to his wife she does not know where he is being held and he has some medical complications.

However when contacted, Military Spokesman Major General Prasad Samarasingha said that General Fonseka's wife has visited him today and has been granted visiting rights. (Daily Mirror online)

    Ruthless leaders have no reason, to reason. They are bent on only one objective - destroy those who oppose them! ... In Sri Lanka, there is no serendipity ...

    Tuesday, 09 February 2010 04:21 PM

    There are somany Tamils have been arrested by the governemnt and its forces , still their loved ones don't know where they are .All should be treated equal

    Never expect democracy from a person who does not know how to pronounce the term properly ...

    Tuesday, 09 February 2010 04:40 PM

    Utterly a foolish comment Mr. Gnanasooriya. Shame of you guy.

    Tuesday, 09 February 2010 04:41 PM

    At the first instance, do you know what is ICRC. Without having proper knowledge don't waste our time and make us annoyed.

    Tuesday, 09 February 2010 04:43 PM

    Good move, there you are - you guys proved that you'll are educated. Good move, go ahead.

    Tuesday, 09 February 2010 04:45 PM

    Here they are with back bones. Appreciate your good move and admire on your efforts - thanks.

    Tuesday, 09 February 2010 04:45 PM

    ust think about da situation of an ordinary tamil citizen dere...at least by now a significant percentage of da majority could understand the situation of the Tamils !!! now even SF faces the same situation ...!!!

    Tuesday, 09 February 2010 04:47 PM

    ICRC should make the International community aware of this cowardly and illegal abduction of a former presidential candidate and potential parliamentarian. Long live SF.

    Tuesday, 09 February 2010 04:49 PM

    If you would have voted for SF, then your request would have been granted, but with a ruthless ruler who kicked the ladder after ctlimbing up, how could you expect justice.

    Tuesday, 09 February 2010 04:52 PM

    Yes, its reasonable but from a Leader who is a Dictator you cannot expect these good moves. Only General would have met your reasonable request, but !!!!!!

    Tuesday, 09 February 2010 04:57 PM

    Wise comment from a wise SriLankan Citizen. Yes, we need people like you to combat the nasty, un-cultured idiotical rulers of our nation. Lets pray for General to come out victoriously

    Tuesday, 09 February 2010 04:59 PM

    Exactly, ICRC must intervene and bring out Great Leader back and teach Mahinda a good lesson this time.

    Tuesday, 09 February 2010 12:54 PM

    this is the same ICRC that he called tererist
