Medical officers attended to General Sarath Fonseka today and maintained that his health condition has not deteriorated as alleged by his wife Anoma Fonseka and the General continues to get the best medical treatment, the army said today.

The Democratic National Alliance (DNA) said yesterday that the government is attempting to kill detained General by allowing him to die of natural causes and by not providing him medical treatment.

However the army said that medical officers attending to General Sarath Fonseka, who is currently detained at Navy Headquarters have maintained that his health condition has not deteriorated.

“The Army on its part has provided the medical services to him on a regular basis and round the clock since he continues to remain under Army care. No such complaint of sickness has been made by General Fonseka to this date, nor has any observation to that effect been made by the Navy Medical Officer in attendance,” the army said.

The army added that in addition to the 24 hour medical services, the services of any medical specialist have also been made available to General Fonseka as and when required. 

The army further said that in the early hours of today, the detained General received thorough medical attention from the Navy Medical Officer in his attendance and a medical specialist in the presence of Anoma Fonseka.

“The Army reiterates that it is prepared to provide him with the best medical care at all times,” the army said. (Daily Mirror online)

    I respect our forces but there are rouge elephants everywhere. I know for a fact that all forces are behind our great General. Just be patient guys truth will be heard loud & clear very soon.

    Monday, 29 March 2010 10:55 AM

    Why can't they ask the Doctor who treated General before to give a statement of the current condition of his health to the media.

    Monday, 29 March 2010 11:21 AM

    If Ary & navy can not be trusted, do you want us to trust the JVP clowns?

    Monday, 29 March 2010 12:18 PM

    The best medical attention from whom? The Navy Vedas?

    Monday, 29 March 2010 12:50 PM

    YES you can trust the Army and Navy officers- they are professionals. Can you trust the media officers who write the press releases?

    Private physicians to treat cricketers from India, and even footballer Beckham, but no such luck for the hero who vanquished the LTTE and liberated the country. "Loketa Parakase Gederata Maragathe"!

    If there is nothing to hide why not give access to the RED CROSS or any other Independent doctor. This is mere 'eyewash' ... we are being taken for a ride.

    Allow the RED-CROSS to speak to him - problem solved!
