    SF is the most ungrateful, how many times we asked him not to go against his own team

    Ryan Wednesday, 17 November 2010 07:54 AM

    He is not war hero, he is just a traitor.

    sarath Wednesday, 17 November 2010 07:54 AM

    May God Bless Him,Pray for a speedy Recovery

    Modawansa Wednesday, 17 November 2010 07:54 AM

    Some joker may decide to raid the hospital as well.

    Ryan Wednesday, 17 November 2010 07:55 AM

    Sf is not a political prisoner, but he is an irresponsible government servent.

    I also wish the same, but what MR wishes prevail.
    This is his 2nd term wish (SF's) exit.

    TMA Wednesday, 17 November 2010 08:14 AM

    So, this is what the govt. wanted.

    LANKA Wednesday, 17 November 2010 08:16 AM

    WHO COULD BE BITING NAILS NOW?

    victoria Wednesday, 17 November 2010 08:19 AM

    Kalu Sudda Wednesday, 17 November 2010 09:35 PM

    Suicide eh?

    impartial Wednesday, 17 November 2010 12:32 PM

    WICKRAMA should read the whole comments and make his mind corrected.

    test

    Nandimithra. Wednesday, 17 November 2010 12:38 PM

    To get proof you must be in power. SF would have got the proof.
    See the CBK rackets like Water's Edge came out only after her defeat - till then documents are locked up with the Boss.

    SF Wednesday, 17 November 2010 08:37 AM

    I understand now, I would not have spoken like the way i did in my election campaign....Mr. MR I beg your parden "please release me now"

    TMA Wednesday, 17 November 2010 08:40 AM

    Or may B MR is afraid of floods, due 2 God's wrath

    Naleen Pradeep Wednesday, 17 November 2010 08:42 AM

    Thats what they want....

    Gunasena Wednesday, 17 November 2010 12:54 PM

    If he can tolerate this type of foolish act of governimg people, this will be really a blessing in disguise

    kugan Wednesday, 17 November 2010 11:43 PM

    a true hero with green card,he will be disapper any time..........

    Darren Wednesday, 17 November 2010 08:49 AM

    Well said sol.He is the traitor Number one.

    Chenamana Wednesday, 17 November 2010 09:00 AM

    Now see the outcome of the drugs search operation held in the prison recently. May be his food was poisoned to kill him and this is already in MR Chintanaya. MR & Co is successful in doing this. Now Due Gunasekara is telling you need permission to enter the prison after they have successfully carried out their operation.

    mahem Wednesday, 17 November 2010 09:02 AM

    WICKRAMA,
    shame on you to be a Sri Lankan.

    Anselm Wednesday, 17 November 2010 09:03 AM

    Premakumar, have you forgotten what ex-President Chandrika did and isn't there any ungratefulness. Gen. Fonseka contested very democratically and also stop all forms corruption in Sri Lanka. Whose money is being spent by the present day politicians?

    Anselm Wednesday, 17 November 2010 09:07 AM

    I fully agree with you but I have my doubts about the first part since the present GOSL has other ideas. Dear General, all the peace-loving Sri Lankans will pray for speedy recovery. We are still living and we can call ourselves Sri Lankans mainly due to you, Honourable Sir. You were duly elected but the whole world knows what happened.

    jinthu Wednesday, 17 November 2010 09:09 AM

    The political column story is only a imagination of some "ghost" who fails to reveal his/her name. Any one could give such fairy tale stories about their wild imaginations.

    Assay Bayai! Wednesday, 17 November 2010 01:52 PM

    tnx to Computers.....

    AH Wednesday, 17 November 2010 09:18 AM

    Anselm,
    You know why Danuna (SIL of SF) is still hiding? Why he can not present him self to courts?

    ND Wednesday, 17 November 2010 09:19 AM

    Agreed his sickness should not be laughed at. But do you also shed similar tears for thousands of other heroes who shed blood for Sri Lanka? I doubt that.

    tamilson Wednesday, 17 November 2010 09:20 AM

    hearing some laughter from the heaven...

    Karagoda Wednesday, 17 November 2010 09:21 AM

    Not only them.
    Also Great Mandela, Nehru, Aung San Suu Kyi, Anver Ibrahim, Ali Bhuto, Asif Al Zardari, our own Vijaya and Stupid (you know who) also spent times inside.
    Also great Ayatollah Khomieni, Aquino and few others spent time in exile.

    nilmini Wednesday, 17 November 2010 09:31 AM

    Dear Sir,
    May triple gems bless you !!!
    You are the hero Sir !! Our motherland needs your great service. We are still waiting for you.
    Wish you speedy recovery Sir!!

    Varathan Wednesday, 17 November 2010 02:53 PM

    SF also responsible for the death of thousands of innocent civilians in Wanni.

    Pali Wednesday, 17 November 2010 02:56 PM

    Poor Anoma she has to see to SF and the s-in-law. She is in a real soup. While SF serves his term she has only to worry about the s-in-law!!!

    haris Wednesday, 17 November 2010 09:42 AM

    If Sri Lanka desperately need him why did not vote to him for presidency?

    Haris

    ruwan Wednesday, 17 November 2010 03:05 PM

    Surely are a junior citizen with no brains

    WICKRAMA Wednesday, 17 November 2010 03:08 PM

    JOLLY GOOD!!!! NOW IT IS -220 !

    akoon Wednesday, 17 November 2010 09:45 AM

    He tendered a yeoman service to nation and no body could argive against that. But the way he led the election campaign led to his downfall. Highly personal allegations leveled against HE and family (probably without any proof) and some sarcastic comments about them and threats during the campaign to put HE and family to jail would have led to the pathetic situation he faces today. I believe it's the JVP's influence led to this situation

    Mig Wednesday, 17 November 2010 09:45 AM

    nothin to be shamed of .. thats the truth.. all drama...

    Siri Wednesday, 17 November 2010 09:49 AM

    'He was ungrateful' because he contested against MR? Is that serious logic? It shows MR has turned all of us into 'dummies'. What about MR's gratitude to CBK and Anura? Within weeks he was discarding them like worn socks!

    Api Walata! Wednesday, 17 November 2010 09:49 AM

    Sorry for comment. Silly one.

    Boomerang Wednesday, 17 November 2010 09:52 AM

    He lost because of the Jil Mart.

    RUWANI Wednesday, 17 November 2010 03:38 PM

    I wish him a speedy recovery.he is the real hero of this land

    nishma Wednesday, 17 November 2010 06:22 AM

    A lot to do Sir!!

    Kasthuri Wednesday, 17 November 2010 06:22 AM

    May triple gems bless you.

    Smart Aleck Wednesday, 17 November 2010 10:10 AM

    It must be the shock of yesterday's Supreme Court order.

    Gutsy Wednesday, 17 November 2010 10:16 AM

    Like other prisoners he is in prison for his doings. So he is also a prisoner similar to others. There shouldn't be special treatment.

    Vidu Wednesday, 17 November 2010 10:18 AM

    who put this man into this trouble ( Ranil , Mangala & Moda JVP gan)

    JUNIOR CITIZEN Wednesday, 17 November 2010 10:19 AM

    He will be our next leader!All honest leader(NM,COLVIN) spent time in Jail.

    paul Wednesday, 17 November 2010 06:39 AM

    We pray for speedy recovery SIR.

    Jackson Wednesday, 17 November 2010 10:22 AM

    There is no comparison to Mandela and Aung San Suu Kyi. They were great politicos. SF had no political background at all but wanted to become the President - does that work?

    sol Wednesday, 17 November 2010 06:41 AM

    annunta leda danna gihilla nikan leda wuna

    more like a POW (Prisoner Of War) .....

    Jack Wednesday, 17 November 2010 10:23 AM

    Wasn't SF corrupt himself before pointing fingers at others?
    Son-in-law on the run and his business partner in jail. Did you question yourself why this is?

    Cynic Wednesday, 17 November 2010 06:47 AM

    MR might order him back to prison.

    JUNIOR CITIZEN Wednesday, 17 November 2010 10:24 AM

    are you preying for his S.I.L too

    B.B. Marasingha Wednesday, 17 November 2010 06:49 AM

    Is SF really sick or MR doesn't want him in prison while coronation? b'cos MR knows who is the chief architect of the war victory and hospitalizing SF reduce the king's guilty feeling in some way.

    Nishantha Rajapakse Wednesday, 17 November 2010 06:50 AM

    that wont happen...GoSL is nothing to him...just a piece of cake

    Perera Wednesday, 17 November 2010 10:25 AM

    How can SF do this? Nonsense he was not a good politician anyway. Just trying to fly high when there is blood in his hands too.

    Nandimithra. Wednesday, 17 November 2010 04:32 PM

    Yes in a true democracy/

    JUNIOR CITIZEN Wednesday, 17 November 2010 10:25 AM

    Its God's wish

    Nan Wednesday, 17 November 2010 06:51 AM

    looking at Sri Lankan history it is only normal for a politician turn inmate to spend the rest of his sentence in prison hospital. Nevertheless, since this man being there at all, is arguable, i wish him a speedy recovery.

    Silva Wednesday, 17 November 2010 10:25 AM

    That shouldn't happen until SF serves his term.

    JUNIOR CITIZEN Wednesday, 17 November 2010 10:26 AM

    the most sensible comment

    Nandimithra. Wednesday, 17 November 2010 04:42 PM

    You are like the govt - maximum minus points.

    dilum Wednesday, 17 November 2010 06:52 AM

    Wickrama - all will curse you for publishing this type of remarks.
    Dont you know he was bombed and critical ill. Where were
    you all these days. Dont stooge to this level - Shame on you

    suwantha Wednesday, 17 November 2010 10:27 AM

    it is better to die than living in this corrupted country.but i wish you good luck sir you are our time national hero .we have never seen other heroes fought aginst terrorism but you did it.

    Nishantha Rajapakse Wednesday, 17 November 2010 06:53 AM

    that won't happen... GoSL is nothing for him, just a piece of cake...

    Ane Anichchan Wednesday, 17 November 2010 06:55 AM

    Unlike an ordinary prisoner, SF as a political prisoner the government will bear the full responsibility of looking after him appropriately until he is released.

    man Wednesday, 17 November 2010 06:55 AM

    Give General SF full security. Let only his family members to take care of him.

    willows Wednesday, 17 November 2010 07:00 AM

    No point in arguing any more, all we can do is pray for you and for your family Sir, we know one day you will liberate Mother Sri Lanka, may the god bless you and protect you and your family Sir.

    w.g.l Wednesday, 17 November 2010 07:00 AM

    I pray to Jesus to heal his mind and body both very soon GOD bless you Dear General get courage General see this Burma lady see Nelson Mendala thank you GOD

    Mohamed Wednesday, 17 November 2010 10:36 AM

    Dear General SF, My Special Prayers this Eid Festival Day for your speedy recovery.

    Wara Wednesday, 17 November 2010 07:04 AM

    Yes, it's something connected to 2 term commemoration of MR ???

    Premakumar Wednesday, 17 November 2010 07:08 AM

    I think SF should have never taken to politics particularly against MR. SF became Army Commander only because of MR. He was ungrateful. But I think the whole country including MR will be grateful to him for all what he did as the Army Commander to finish the war. Now time for healing and reconciliation process to take place. All clergy leaders should convince MR to release SF now and also for SF to keep his tongue under control.

    Shan Wednesday, 17 November 2010 05:06 PM

    He is prisoner of conscience... do you understand?

    Boomerang Wednesday, 17 November 2010 07:11 AM

    There are heaps of cutthroats who will benefit seeing this great man's blood on the bedsheet.

    Percy Mandawala Wednesday, 17 November 2010 07:11 AM

    You recovered the country from terrorism. Patriotic citizens of our country needs your speedy recovery

    Lanka Law Graduates Wednesday, 17 November 2010 07:13 AM

    It is Government`s responsibility to keep this "Great Hero of Srilanka" in "Good Health" and take maximum care for this "National Treasure" because he is the "Real President of Srilanka"

    Anver Wednesday, 17 November 2010 07:14 AM

    Your comment is most ungrateful and uncalled for. Any sick man must be looked at with sympathy and SF was not an ordinary man, he is a great hero who shed blood for our country.

    LANKAN Wednesday, 17 November 2010 10:54 AM

    General, do u want Dr.Mervin to treat u?he is the best doctor to cure ur illness.
