Never heard of any of them? Where is the leading clergy?

Not a miscarriage but a total abortion of justice.

SF is a miscarriage!!! Not the justice...

Not a abortion but a total removal of womb.

Great work. This shows Sri Lankan unity. They are all inspired by General Sarath Fonseka who taught us the greatest lesson about unity on the 19th May 2009. Long live the general.
Ranil Monday, 25 October 2010 04:16 AM
In Sri Lanka, that is called terrorism. Especially when they dont worship the government.

It is not "miscarriage of justice" it is a form of legalised crime against humanity. Those responsible for this must be punished soon or later.

We love you General, it's just that our voices cant be heard...

The display of unity is appreciated and hope their plea will be taken up with due consideration.
Shivanka David Monday, 25 October 2010 05:08 AM
My personal opinion is that these religious leaders should not interfere into politics & loose their respect, unlike the buddhist monks who invade the politics.
Heamu Sunday, 24 October 2010 02:28 PM
Oh do not kill the woman of justice
Nandimithra Sunday, 24 October 2010 02:30 PM
They the leading clergy want to safeguard their positions. Too much to lose by protesting.
matara kolla Sunday, 24 October 2010 02:32 PM
I wish they don't bring religiond to disrepute. Leave the legalities to the courts, and concentrate on rebuilding the war savaged country.
Kalu Sudda Monday, 25 October 2010 08:37 AM
First they sholuld learn the religion and then hopefully the law.
Sepala Sunday, 24 October 2010 03:31 PM
Where is Somawansa, Tilwin etc. They represent another (religious?) group...
Wasantha Sunday, 24 October 2010 03:37 PM
Miscarriage of justice is a deliberate act.
daham Sunday, 24 October 2010 03:49 PM
He was convicted by a military court which consisted of three officers. During the time of SF as Commander of the army he himself had appointed military courts and sent so many army officers to Welikada. If military courts are illegal those convicted men should also be freed.

WHY ,WHAT ABOUT THE OTHER LESSONS? LIKE hi-corp, money in wallets, putting innocent soldiers in prison etc
sampath - vietnam Sunday, 24 October 2010 04:26 PM
Good to see at least some clergies have the courage to stand for injustice. Hope and pray that they are not treated with hooliganism due to this.
JUNIOR CITIZEN Sunday, 24 October 2010 04:26 PM
SF should be tried for all those crimes. He deserves a life term .
pw Monday, 25 October 2010 05:41 AM
There are over 55 officers and 1000s of soldiers. Why do you need names ?? Are you still think that is a false information.
Jehan Sunday, 24 October 2010 04:29 PM
I am Critical about Fonsekas Conduct, and I Firmly believe that this should not be the fate of him, When KP is not sued When Mervin is reinstated, when mega fraudsters given top jobs and ministries a person cant justify this verdict against SF, the question any person would ask will be what if he was in Govt side will this be the fate of him??
pissupusa Sunday, 24 October 2010 04:37 PM
Go and get a life.
pw Monday, 25 October 2010 05:42 AM
I don't understand why these Sf lovers never talk about the daylight robbery of hidden money found in Danuna's mothers safty locker. She clearly said that was given by SF.
pw Monday, 25 October 2010 05:43 AM
What to worse, people are forgetting about SF now.
Darren Monday, 25 October 2010 05:44 AM
well said Junior Citizen.In my opinion He should be sent to gallows.
Danushka Sunday, 24 October 2010 04:58 PM
Your name says your mindset. Nothing is proven although it has been months.
Concerned Citizen Sunday, 24 October 2010 05:21 PM
Have you heard of the rule 'justice should not only be done, but also seen to be done"? In SF's case, the officers heading the court martial inquiry were anti-SF. So, there was not even a semblance of justice that one could have got from that panel. CASE CLOSED!
Concerned Citizen Sunday, 24 October 2010 05:22 PM
Shame on the Government. MR hang your head in shame!
AA Sunday, 24 October 2010 05:42 PM
Remeber he had retired from service. So why should he be subjected to a military court? The officers you are talking about would have been in service.
Kundu mali Sunday, 24 October 2010 06:13 PM
Good move. Hope the Govt will listen , if not people are going to come out and protest.So MR & GOTA please listen to the Wise men..
mal kumaraya Sunday, 24 October 2010 06:20 PM
They all are in JVP..
Don Sunday, 24 October 2010 06:28 PM
Well done the clergy. It is your duty to give leadership to the truth and injustice.
Please take the leadership, not only limited to a meeting such as this but cascade it to the whole country, day after day. If you don't give leadership to the truth, no one can.
Amara Sunday, 24 October 2010 07:32 PM
Like QE 1 QE2? More like Mugabe. You can change your name to Zim Lanka putha too.
Amara Sunday, 24 October 2010 07:35 PM
If so, what was the govt. doing then? Anybody with an iota of brain can realise that all these allegations surfaced after he stool up to the MR clan

Soon we will see a further worsening of the situation.

Dogs don't expect the moon to fall when they bark. Only stupid people think dogs bark because they want the moon to fall.

Well Yehiya - were you sleeping. We in UK know the answers and it was well published in the medica what happened to gold and money.

True all the crooks are with SF.
Jaliya Sunday, 24 October 2010 10:21 PM
Yes the fate would be the same as he's done a crime. The opposition will not keep quiet. The Army knows what he was up to.
ranjith Sunday, 24 October 2010 11:35 PM
not only the General, look at sripathi mangala, tiran, anura, these people treat like that.
raj Sunday, 24 October 2010 11:58 PM
I thought you were spritual leaders like Dali Lama. Now I realize that you know politics too. Tamils have already experience of misscarriage.
Messenger Monday, 25 October 2010 12:52 AM
This is not mixing of religion with politics. This is projecting justice and compassion by religion. They do their duty by coming forward against injustice.
Hemal de Silva Monday, 25 October 2010 02:00 AM
You have now. Leaders only mislead.
Truth Monday, 25 October 2010 06:53 AM
What do you know about Hi-Corp. Go and read evidence given by the Registrar of Companies. Danuna has no connection whatsoever with Hi-Corp in Sri Lanka.
