General Sarath Fonseka suspended his fast unto death today morning when the military granted him permission to speak to his daughters via his wife’s mobile phone last night, his wife Anoma Fonseka said.
Speaking to Daily Mirror Online, Mrs. Fonseka said that the military had contacted her late last evening, asking her to visit her husband immediately with her mobile phone as he had been granted permission to speak to his children through her number.
“I went to see my husband at around 11 in the night after the military called me. He spoke to his daughter’s through my mobile phone and now he is a bit relieved,” Mrs. Fonseka said.
The military had earlier provided telephone facilities to the General which he had refused insisting that he would stop his fast only if he was given his wife’s mobile phone.
