The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) today informed court that they had recorded a statement from General Sarath Fonseka regarding the granting of approval on four suspicious tenders whilst serving as the chairman of the tender board.

When the inquiry into the HiCorp case was taken up before Colombo Fort Magistrate Ms. Lanka Jayaratne today, the CID informed that they recorded a statement from General Fonseka last Sunday, but stated that he was unaware about the owners of British Borneo Defense Company and HiCorp Ltd Company.

General Fonseka had further informed CID that he had followed the relevant procedure into four concerned tenders following the approval of Technical Evaluation Board.

    Keep it up SF. Most of the Sri Lankans with you.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 10:46 AM

    SF pretends to be a "Thottha Baba" not knowing anything about his SIL's company Hicorp.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 10:46 AM

    The men who wail loudest against corruption are the ones who have made the most.Now SF will be more angry as he has lost 75 Mil parked with his son in law/family.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 10:49 AM

    Question why would a guy who had his daughters in USA had to keep the money with Daughter's Mother in Law. Either you are just blinded with conviction rather than patient to hear the full story.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 10:49 AM

    All in vain, nobody, nobody ever be able to destroy the image of this officer & gentleman, a product of Ananda & Darmasoka.His name will live for ever...............

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 11:02 AM

    If all these allegations are true, why waited all these time.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 11:04 AM

    wt is 75mn. compared to billions of US$ transfered overseas during last few weeks of the election.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 11:06 AM

    because there are all MR supporters!!!

    what else??

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 11:07 AM

    C.I.D - Con-artists intelligence division

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 08:04 PM

    These are 'trumped-up' charges ... no real evidence against the newspaper editor ... no real evidence against the 14 ex-servicemen ... that's why the courts released them ...

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 11:11 AM

    GR ORDERED ARRESTED FOR WRONG DOING, THEN WHY GR AUTHORISED THE PURCHASE THRO THE GOVT LOGISTIC COMPANY, THEREFORE HE IS ALSO LIABLE.
    WILL HE ALSO BE ARRESTED NOW?????????????

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 11:11 AM

    I hope Fonseka a person from south especially from Ambalangoda and as the person who mastermind the collapse of LTTE is more smarter than those who question him

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 11:12 AM

    75M on Danuna's mother's account with no logical explanation, but still there are idiots who support SF. These are proven facts about SF and what we hear about MR are all unproven rumours.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 11:15 AM

    If the tender is been in question, its the problem of the MoD.
    All tenders pertaining to defence hardware are to be approved by the Sec Defence or a person nominated by him.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 11:18 AM

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 11:29 AM

    Mr. Clean's unclean works comes out......................

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 08:55 AM

    Definately Fonseka is a very clean person. The govt. will try to fabricate something which they do all the time.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 08:56 AM

    Keep it up SF. God's help will always be with you & your family.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 11:35 AM

    They are slinging mud against you sir.

    The truth will prevail someday. Unfortunately we have to wait for it. We know that you are clean.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 11:35 AM

    Nice Game...could be marketing under SF vs. MR Playstaion-2010...!?!

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 11:36 AM

    We are very sad Sir all these are politically motivated actions. we beleive that you are honest and clean. May God bring justice and expose those who behaind this conspiracy

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 11:38 AM

    May the tripple gem and the devas and gods of all the other religions bless you!
    Don't worry be happy !

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:02 AM

    His son in law's involvement is suspicious. If MR SF is innocent and he does not know anything about his son in law's work?

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:04 AM

    So Technical Evaluation Board would be questioned and arrested next????.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:06 AM

    Yes certainly. That is why he does not have any money with him or his wife. And his son in law's mother also not much, only 75 million in a safety locker.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 12:05 PM

    Yeah, he is very clean. He has kept all the fraudulent wealth in others safty lockers and accounts. These blind SF follower cannot be cured. Only thing can say is SORRY !!!

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:07 AM

    Why isn't the Chairman of Lanka Logistics who awarded the tender questioned ?

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:07 AM

    My Dear Sir, Please show the world how clean you are? We are with you Sir. May the lord god bless you and your family and look after

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:11 AM

    yes if SF live in moon.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 12:21 PM

    First shall be the last and last shall be the first, Dear Sir Sarath please do not worry , guilty are affright and short lived

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:12 AM

    Moo Illanne Kewe. This is due to avarice to Power. He wanted to be the president straight away from Army. But it is not ethical. Irony of fate.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:12 AM

    It seems that there has never been any reason other than this for the CID to question and record statements with regard to tender procedures in this country before!

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:13 AM

    Who where the people in the Technical Evaluation Board.....aha... Gen sir dont worry...we are with you.....

    Thursday, 18 February 2010 09:36 AM

    Not commenting on your comments until MR's bank account gets throughly investigated......hmmmm we may have a long wait my friends.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:14 AM

    The present CID staff would not be enough to investigate the crime committed by the ministers, their thugs and sons, daughters and son in laws. Keep it up your good work and ask for more staff.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:15 AM

    Hope the Sri Lankan President got the balls to stand up be counted and find one single tender, irrespective of the department or the ministry, where clean procedures are followed during his watch.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 12:51 PM

    I think this is a good opportunity that other defence deals also should be brought to courts for invetigation so that the people will no the truth behind all the shady deals

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:25 AM

    Anyone has 75 million. He may have sold a 20 perch land in somewhere in Colombo. It could have been election money collected for use in the General Elections. Dont come to wrong conclusions.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:29 AM

    Doesnt MR realize that the more he keeps harassing SF, the less popular he gets?

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:32 AM

    YES EXPOSE EVERYTHING ,, WHICH SHOULD B TRUE,, DO NOT TRY TO TAKE THE CID PERSONELS FOR A RIDE, THAT ERER IS OVER,

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:32 AM

    Very simple. He is still with the Govt. Otherwise he would have been jailed for some reason.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:33 AM

    Is this statement authentic and by SF or has the CID cooked it up? Who know! let truth prevail.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:35 AM

    think, you are fabricating stories even after knowing the truth.. i know truth is bitter

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:36 AM

    I have not seen a brutal regime like this in the world taking political revenge from opornants.

    Dear Sir donot worry, If the crane has chances every day , at least once in life time the crab will have a chance . That day the crane will be finished.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:36 AM

    If some one blindfold you ,you try to get rid of it. If blindfold your self you tighten it further. never see the light. never see the reality or truth.
    How blind you are Anusha. !. You are not alone. there are 4 millions with you.
    I am really sorry about them

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:36 AM

    Gods will punish wrong doers for sure, see it has just begun..This is only the first step of it, wait and see

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:37 AM

    Lanka Logistics Chairman is a Patriot who was away for 15 years living in USA so no body cant question him

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:39 AM

    Because he is a close associate of MR. Nobody can touch king's goons.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:39 AM

    I think SF had got very bad son-in-law.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:50 AM

    what about the government miniters whohave violated teh tender procedures.etc etc.why isn't CID worried about recording statements about those peole

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:51 AM

    You see the Protests are working and the release of SF is very close by.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:52 AM

    they should do some thing to discharg mr fonseka that is the reson ,,,,,,

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:54 AM

    Yes Yes fonseka is a clean person who has millions US money in safe custody in the bank lockers.

    Silva

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:58 AM

    What the government is trying to find out is how he got this money and from where. Please be patient. The inquiry will show how clean this person is.

    Silva

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 09:58 AM

    Why not chaiman of TEC?

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 10:00 AM

    Let the CID also check on the money and assets in Sri Lanka and overseas of all politicians and their extended families.

    What we want is transparency and honesty.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 10:00 AM

    Who approved this tender? MR (Defence Minister) or Gota (defence Sec)?

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 10:00 AM

    Is it such a criminal act to arrest and harass the most famous war hero like this? Whole world will laugh at us to see our childish activities

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 10:03 AM

    Well said , even politician's supporters spend more than that only on posters and cut-outs.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 10:06 AM

    Why did they take so long.Harassment and victimization. What a sorry state we have got ourselves into.What about the politicians who rob the country.THEY ARE ABOVE THE LAW.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 10:06 AM

    Yes they are Mahinda's gangsters who could twist matters according to their taste.For the sake of Mahinda's money the CID cold create histories to trap down our Hero.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 10:08 AM

    Now very soon some of govt ministers involved in COPE report...HEDGING deal and other hundred of other illegal transaction will come out.....

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 10:08 AM

    No they are the Policy makers of MR, who could fabricte things favouring their nasty master.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 10:11 AM

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 10:20 AM

    He said he has a bank balance of only Rs.50,000/=. Yes very clean from outside but definitely NOT INSIDE. More vaults are to be opened, just wait and see the skeletons coming out.

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 10:21 AM

    Wonder if the final statement will have his exact words... Hmmmm..

    Wednesday, 17 February 2010 10:36 AM
