Former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka told the media outside the Colombo High Court that underworlds gangsters, such as thugs, rapists, drug lords and thieves had taken the upper hand in the country.

Leaving the Colombo High Court, where the white flag case was taken today, Mr. Fonseka said “in olden days our rulers toiled to safeguard the country, its culture and the people, but unfortunately today is a different story as they have joined hands with the underworld gangsters, such as thugs, rapists, drug lords and thieves.”

“This too should go down in the Mahawansa,” he quipped.

    rightly said SF , u spoke with your heart out , the true heroes speak the truth , since they do not have anything to hide as they did not do anything wrong.

    rosh Thursday, 16 June 2011 05:30 PM

    If he was tactful and mindful in addressing the public when was contesting, Im sure he would have been the president. Those days he was talking all nonsense like "Kalawedda" stories !!!
