Canadian Tamils have thrown their weight behind former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka despite their criticism of his actions during the war, Indo Asian News Service said.

'We had problems with Fonseka as a military general, but we have no differences with him as a politician. He has been treated unjustly and jailed by a kangaroo court at the direction of Mahinda Rajapaksa and his family clique which is running the country,'' Canadian Tamil Congress national spokesman David Poopalapillai told IANS.

'The treatment of the former military chief shows how cruelly this government has treated its opponents, including Tamils. We in the Tamil diaspora will fight for the release of not only of thousands of Tamils but also Fonseka.'' Poopalapillai has said.

    If you treat your own hero like this imagine the treatments of tamils whom some might consider as enemy. For those who enjoyed seeing others misery, now you can have bit of your own.

    May be sponsored by KP to misguide the general public. Canadian tamils are trying to get some milage from this statement due to the tough laws on refugees by G of C.

    JEM D Monday, 11 October 2010 02:36 AM

    Canadian Tamils? You mean L T T E members who illegally immigrated to Canada and sought political refuge?

    Well take some time to stop and smell the roses.

    KD Sunday, 10 October 2010 07:38 AM

    Renuka Jayarathne Sunday, 10 October 2010 07:50 AM

    Planet of Tamil Eelam.

    Ranbanda Tuesday, 12 October 2010 01:45 PM

    Canadian tigers wants to show sympathy and get another ship load of supporters.

    Soldier from Sinha R Monday, 11 October 2010 03:53 AM

    You correct Tamil brothers and Sisters, Fonseka fight with Terrorism in Srilanka, especially to make Democracy to Tamil People in North and East, you got it because of General Fonseka, but rest of the Sinhalese including General Fonseka still fighting for Democracy.

    pd Sunday, 10 October 2010 09:18 AM

    poopalai is like his leader changes stripes & certainly cannot be trusted. we hvwatched sleeping with da enemy!

    ASFAR Monday, 11 October 2010 04:17 AM

    TP Sunday, 10 October 2010 10:20 AM

    ND Monday, 11 October 2010 06:06 AM

    Totally agree. Benedict, dont insult your own intelligence... I am presuming you have some.

    ND Monday, 11 October 2010 06:08 AM

    Wow Ranjith, how did you come to this conclusion? What fiction have you been reading?

    matara kolla Sunday, 10 October 2010 12:54 PM

    Give him the Presidentship of the so called transnational Govt. with Arms procurement ministerial protfolio to his son-in-law.

    Podi Guru Sunday, 10 October 2010 01:00 PM

    The correct saying goes this way, "Birds of a feather flock together." Your version sounds like you are talking about a bunch of girls!

    Smart Aleck Sunday, 10 October 2010 01:05 PM

    Is this real or a ruse to make the General unpopular with Sri Lankans?

    thusi Sunday, 10 October 2010 01:18 PM

    Mr White Flag and LTTE coming together....

    thusi Sunday, 10 October 2010 01:19 PM

    These are not Tamil Supporters...These are LTTE supporters....When will our idiots understand this....

    thusi Sunday, 10 October 2010 01:20 PM

    I am in SL....i totally agreed with this....he is a stupid hero....

    thusi Sunday, 10 October 2010 01:21 PM

    U must have been sleeping for the past 1 years.....

    Roshan DW Sunday, 10 October 2010 01:33 PM

    Tigers are trying to change their stripes...

    saas Sunday, 10 October 2010 03:46 AM

    Do U understand UNP,JVP and these people shoud responsible for these out comes.

    Wasantha Sunday, 10 October 2010 01:39 PM

    This may be an attempt to tarnish the image of SF by showing that he is a traitor. Be careful.

    Ossan Salam - Doha Sunday, 10 October 2010 03:54 AM

    So.....eventually the cat jumped out of the bags

    chandima Sunday, 10 October 2010 03:58 AM

    Definitely not out of love for General.....this is a dangerous agenda. Don't fall for this.

    chamitha Sunday, 10 October 2010 04:00 AM

    LTTE lobby is with SF - this is exactly why we should not back Fonseka

    SF Sunday, 10 October 2010 04:08 AM

    If KP support the Government whats wrong with these Canadian Tamils supporting General..
    Long live General, everyone should come forward to save him..

    local boy Sunday, 10 October 2010 04:17 AM

    This is why I always shout against so called Hero.

    Ranjith Sunday, 10 October 2010 04:23 AM

    What about the big cats KP, Karuna and Pillayan? Some change colours when come to power. Everyone knows in whose bags Lokka was just before the previous presidential election

    Moratu Puthek Sunday, 10 October 2010 04:32 AM

    you mean to say that the war was won by the General with the able support of the UNP, JVP and the others ?

    Hurrah you accept that the credit for the victory should NOT go to the family.

    local boy Sunday, 10 October 2010 04:39 AM

    long live ponseka.

    benadict Sunday, 10 October 2010 04:42 AM

    Niran Sunday, 10 October 2010 04:44 AM

    It appears Mr. insignificant is trying his best to de-stabilize Sri Lanka. Keep your crocodile tears to yourself.

    SL Sunday, 10 October 2010 04:46 AM

    Yuri Sunday, 10 October 2010 04:47 AM

    Too shock in the morning! just wonder which planet am i?

    hp Sunday, 10 October 2010 04:51 AM

    This clearly shows that Fonseka is in close touch with LTTE in order to topple the GOSL. Ranil has been in the movment since 2001. our "pandith"JVP later join the rally.This is why I dont belive this hero

    Podi Wije Sunday, 10 October 2010 04:55 AM

    Another strategy by diaspora?? see the mess created by ponseka.. he desrves what he is enjoying right now.

    Benadict, please don't insult Mr. Nelson Mandela.

    francis Sunday, 10 October 2010 04:57 AM

    Recipient of the next noble peace price will come from Sri Lanka and the government should learn from China from now onwards how to handle the situation that will arise..

    saranga Sunday, 10 October 2010 05:16 AM

    Here we go, Now LTTE, JVP, UNP & Fonseka together, may will state can sponsor for the big wedding!!!!

    jay Sunday, 10 October 2010 05:31 AM

    The truth hurts...but it's the truth.

    Ranjith Sunday, 10 October 2010 06:01 AM

    You and state run media mafia can't hide the truth. LTTE was and is for MR. SF destroyed LTTE. These are gimmicks with the help of KP

    Sahan Sunday, 10 October 2010 05:58 PM

    Sinhaya Sunday, 10 October 2010 06:47 PM

    Kalani Raja Sunday, 10 October 2010 09:33 PM

    Do you believe in the people those who were in touch with LTTE and gave them an undisclosed amount of money to prevent tamil voters in 2005 presidential election?

    Kalani Raja Sunday, 10 October 2010 09:37 PM

    mihindu banda Sunday, 10 October 2010 09:51 PM

    Sicillian Sunday, 10 October 2010 06:45 AM

    You sit in Doha and talk. Come to Sri Lanka and see.

    Nimal Senaka Monday, 11 October 2010 12:16 AM

    Poopalipllai is No 1 joker in Canada. Canadians want these welfare cheats to be kicked out. Tamil tigers in Canada are joining the jobless club.
