Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka arrived at the Colombo Crimes Division (CCD) today to give a statement over the remarks he made with regard to COVID-19 situation in the country, allegedly resulting in Coronavirus fear-mongering among the general public.
The CCD launched investigations into the controversial remarks made to the media in March by former MPs Rajitha Senaratne and Sarath Fonseka over the COVID-19 situation.
Field Marshal Fonseka has reportedly said at a media briefing that three Coronavirus diagnosed patients have died in March.
However, the Field Marshal later said his comments were a mistake.
The CCD yesterday recorded a statement from former Minister Senaratne as well at the Pallansena Prison in Negombo where he is being detained.

There is something called taking responsibility and being responsible in doing and saying things. Specially if you are Field Marshal. We tell what people say is cheap and small minded. same on you
