The government insists there is tangible evidence to prove the allegations raised against General Sarath Fonseka and appealed to both the opposition and the media not to make his arrest a political issue.

Government spokesman and Media Minister Lakshman Yapa Abeywardana, speaking to reporters today, said that Fonseka was arrested by the Military Police and is being interrogated for conspiring against the government and the Sri Lanka Army.  (SAJ)

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 02:30 PM

    Educated only up to grade 8 please forgive him as he doesn’t know what he is talking. Just trying to score some marks from Maharaja

    For all the 'patriots' that voted MR back into power...you guys deserve a round of applause for hammering that final nail into the coffin in which free speech and other fundamental rights will be buried forever....

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 02:37 PM

    Mr. Weerawansa must have worked very hard for them..

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 08:25 PM

    How about the 'tangible evidence' in respect of financial crimes? Why is Lalith Kotalawala still free, after he defrauded billions of rupees?

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 02:43 PM

    he heee

    Ane mage kata?

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 09:41 AM

    Must be as tangible as the recent presidential election victory.

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 09:42 AM

    Why oh why is this happening this is down right harrassment of a human being, remember dear brothern "what you sow you will reap"

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 03:21 PM

    well said Manjula.....totally agree with you, am sure the tangible evidance is still "under construction"

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 03:21 PM

    Judge, the jury and the executioner, all in one! Sounds like a tin pot dictatorship to me!!!

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 03:23 PM

    love what you said....so damn true!!!!

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 03:36 PM

    Are You Living in Sri Lanka or not. He is popular among only 42million including you. Not the majority of Sri Lankans. Anyway I am also not agree with the arrest. He was our best Army commander in the Sri lankan history (but not the populer presidential candidate).

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 03:38 PM

    GOSL could not find any tangible evidence when Lasantha was killed, missing media people but was able to find what they want to jail anyone who has information and evidence on war crime. Burma, Pakistan, North Korea, Libya are our directors now and nothing canbe done as of now. We need to find a way for liberation and freedom to make this country a democratic one.

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 10:16 PM

    'Tangible evidence' is available against this government ...

    Thursday, 11 February 2010 06:45 AM

    Fonseka is a traitor!!!!!!he should be court martialed!

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 09:57 AM

    If tangible evidence is available, why the delay? Start court proceedings without delay. Or is it that tangible evidance is still under construction.

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 11:56 AM

    What a pity work!! Arogon won't allow to live opposition members!

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 11:58 AM

    Without even thinking the valuable service the Major General Fonseka rended to the nation, he was pulled by the ruthless rulers (army) in a 3rd class manner. Rajapakshe won't your conscience beat for such a nasty act. This is rediculous... ofcourse.

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 10:01 AM

    who created it?

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 12:05 PM

    True sri lankan issue

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 12:07 PM

    The whole SL and the world knows that General Sarath Fonseka won the election and he became very popular among everyone than (Mahinda Rajapakshe). No-one cannot erace this truth in the History of SriLanka. So, you tiny guy afterall MR's tail talking nonesones and wasting our time. Let us solve the matter legally. Anywat, you guy keep your dirty mouth shut.

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 12:10 PM

    This is Yapa's childish and foolish explanation. Dammmm!!!!

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 12:11 PM

    Tangible evidence. Why wait for so long. Our dear General Sarath Fonseka must be released immediately and allowed to contest the general elections.

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 12:13 PM

    Well Said..Manjula..i was going to ask the same thing..

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 12:14 PM

    This cronic Yapa... don't have sense ofcourse. Well I am a lawyer, come to the point of law - how could you arrest General without a warrent at the first instance. Moreover, he is not in the service to arrested under Army laws. These are the basics.... don't talk nonesones mann... you tiny tot., you are only a dirty politician but I am a lawyer, mind it.

    Thursday, 11 February 2010 07:40 AM

    LTTE is active and working to get GSF at any cost by anyone???

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 12:25 PM

    Yapa is just reaing out what is written by Basil on behaif of is brother.

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 12:30 PM

    The is cooked up evidence not tangile evidence. Minister Yapa must learn his english first if he needs to be a effective media minister.

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 12:36 PM

    Contesting aganist the king.. isnt is tangible evidence of conspiracy... Nature will punish the wrong doer irrespective of whether he is a king or a slave

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 12:54 PM

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 01:01 PM

    Thursday, 11 February 2010 08:09 AM

    Tangible evidence?? bullshit...
    like everyone said may be it is still under construction....

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 01:06 PM

    How come!! mention of evidence was not brought out when he was with the Govt. Does that mean we are all being denied the truth. That is the reason we need media freedom at all times.
