Withholding of evidence: SF should be arrested: Udaya

27 March 2017 07:22 pm - 18     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Field Marshal and Minister Sarath Fonseka should be arrested and put in jail on charges of withholding evidence on the killing of Sunday Leader Editor Lasantha Wickramatunge in 2008, MP Udaya Gammanpila said today.

He said the minister should be arrested just like what happened to former DIG Anura Senanayake who was arrested on charges of withholding evidence in the killing of rugby captain Wasim Thajudeen.

The MP said Mr. Senanayake had rejected allegations levelled against him, though he had been arrested and remanded.

“However, Minister Fonseka had admitted to withholding evidence till 2017, with regard to the killing of Mr. Wickramatunge. He has told the police that it was not him but a team operated under the supervision of General Kapila Hendawitharana which carried out the killing. By this statement, Mr. Fonseka admits to withholding information about the killing and concealing them. Therefore, he should be arrested and remanded,” Mr. Gammanpila told a news conference organised by the Pivithuru Hela Urumaya. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    Most of you politicians should be in jail. The law is taking too long to implement. Wimal is no exception.

    The statement of a criminal liar is meaningless.

    WITH HOLDING ? Tuesday, 28 March 2017 12:55 PM

    If so , why not (you coward) come forward and tell the investigators , what is being withheld , as you seem to be aware. Haul this joker up, and let him answer to the question of what is being withheld..One action like this will shut the mouth of such jokers.

    Before he being arrested you should be hand cuffed for cheating the Australian businessman in millions. Shameless fellow is talking about others and trying to be a saint.

    Yes SF should be arrested for withholding eveidence and the culprits should be punised based on his evidence.

    Maya Monday, 27 March 2017 09:22 PM

    The charges brought against AS cannot be brought against SF. Clearly two different situations. You are just taking politics for the people who do not understand the legal background of the cases. I am sorry for the people who are taking legal advise from you.
