President Mahinda Rajapakse has given the authorization for the 1st court martial sentence, which strips General Sarath Fonseka of all military rank, military officials told Daily Mirror online.

The first court martial found General (Ret.) Sarath Fonseka guilty of involvement in political work while in active service and was sentenced to a dishonorable discharge from rank pending approval of the President.

The defence counsels for General Fonseka were not present at the proceedings of the first Court Martial.

    Why do people see this as any different from JR taking away Sirimavo's civic rights?

    Ranjana Saturday, 14 August 2010 12:27 PM

    This is very unpresident like, you have only upheld a decision of a panel which is not authorized by millitary law to conduct court martial. What a shame

    Smart Aleck Sunday, 15 August 2010 12:03 AM

    Mr. President ! Being blinded by hatred, you have scored an "Own Goal" internationally. Poor Sri Lanka ! What a shame !

    bash Saturday, 14 August 2010 08:57 AM

    Nelson Saturday, 14 August 2010 09:01 AM

    This is what is called a kangaroo court. What else did we expect? MR can strip SF's medals but people know who is the real Hero is.

    Gayan Saturday, 14 August 2010 09:02 AM

    Im not a fan of Fonseka the politician, but Fonseka the Soldier is a hero. I think MR got this one wrong.

    Bakamoona Saturday, 14 August 2010 09:06 AM

    For sure there will be another tsunami for the sins of Sri Lanka.

    Sammy Sunday, 15 August 2010 03:34 AM

    It was not MR who was directly responsible for winning the war but SF and such heroes should not be vilified just because he preferred to go his own way & not be a sycophant.

    Niran Monday, 16 August 2010 05:57 AM

    Gone thru' all above comments , my conclusion is "We have NO knowledge at all of this Game of Politics" ....... We are the ones who cast our votes to such people and still blame them for their acts and this will keep happening forever until our brains fill-up with senses.

    srilankan Saturday, 14 August 2010 09:17 AM

    Perhaps KP could be a General.I am ashamed to be a sri lankan.

    IQBAL Saturday, 14 August 2010 09:18 AM

    Champ Saturday, 14 August 2010 09:22 AM

    JVP has done so many dameges to our motherland but ....I think this is the biggest one.......... missleading Mr Fonseka

    Watchman Saturday, 14 August 2010 09:24 AM

    shame, shame, shame.
    But it is not a matter stars but he is in Sri Lankan's heart for ever and ever.

    ami Sunday, 15 August 2010 04:19 AM

    Tharaka Chanaka Saturday, 14 August 2010 09:28 AM

    Prabarkaran must be laughing in his grave...

    Smart Aleck Saturday, 14 August 2010 09:29 AM

    How can an opponent who is biased be the appellate and final deciding authority? Is this the Sri Lankan version of JUSTICE?
    No wonder Ban Ki-Moon is after us!

    Neil Saturday, 14 August 2010 09:30 AM

    No mate, even worse than Zimbabwe.
