Kalutara district UNP MP Palitha Thevarapperuma yesterday claimed that the Prisons Department was yet to settle Rs. 60 to former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka

 “When the former Army Chief was serving the prison term, he was assigned to work in the ‘Laundry party’ at the Welikada prison. When you work there, you are entitled to a certain amount of money for the work you do. But this prison authority had failed to pay some Rs. 60 due to Mr. Fonseka,” Mr. Thevarapperuma charged.

He said although the former Army Commander had demanded the money before leaving prison, the Prisons Department had failed to do so.

    I thought it is Rs. 60 m. If it is mere Rs. 60, negligible. It is not worth for his rank!

    This is also consider as a wonder of Asia happening in Sri Lanka today. It is a shame to the government's inability to pay Rs. 60.00 to former Army Commander, Hon.Sarath Fonseka. This type acts bring disrepute to the government. If this is happening to Hon. Sarath Fonseka,just imagine the state of other prisoners. It is really shameful and shows how irresponsible and disorganized the government is. This also consider as corruption.

    The Rs.60 due to General Fonseka is delayed due to the Administrative and Financial regulations the prisons dpt has to follow when making such payments. Therefore the dpt will make arrangements to settle it during his next visit to the prison.

    Payment need to be approved by the Secretary Ministry of Defense.

    DM, providing valuable space for such trivialities of issues facing the country, please refrain from wasting your resources and lower your standards of journalism.
