Former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka said that the goals of those ‘seeking revenge’ have not been completely stopped despite his release. “Even though I have been released the goals of those who imprisoned me which include the need to suppress me and take away my political rights have notcompletely stopped as yet. These agendas are still continuing but we will fight them bravely and are not afraid of them” he said.
Fonseka struck a defiant tone when he addressed the media at the High courts today stating that no one can suppress his vision for the future of this country. “Just because they put me behind bars or suppress us they have not been able to suppress my vision for the future of this country. Even in the future I will keep to my promises that I have given to my people before I was imprisoned".
"I will fight for democracy and the rule of law and will also fight for economic sustenance of the people of this country. We don’t want anything back from the country and will always look to give back to our country and to this end I am fully committed towards our peace and democracy loving citizens” he said.
The case for against Fonseka for harbouring Army deserters was postponed to the 21st of June.( Daily Mirror online)
