Former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka’s wife Anoma said yesterday talks with the government on the release of her husband were continuing on a positive note but insisted that Mr. Fonseka would not apologise. Ms. Fonseka told journalists yesterday that her husband had decided not to ask for a pardon as he believed he had done nothing wrong.

She and her supporters said Democratic National Alliance (DNA) MP Tiran Alles was having with the government to get her husband released.
DNA MP Arjuna Ranatunga said the party was keeping the international community updated on these talks while DNA MP Jayantha Ketagoda said they would not dilute the struggle for the release of political prisoners including Mr. Fonseka and their efforts to safeguard democracy.

New Left Front (NLF) Leader Wickramabahu Karunaratne said the government could not be trusted though the talks were continuing.

However the Movement for Democracy which is engaged in the struggle to get the former army commander released would hold a street protest at Aluthkade on February 8 which marks two years of his imprisonment. Mr. Fonseka is expected to be brought to courts on that day for the hearing of the appeal he had filed against the verdict given on the white flag case.

DNA MP Wijitha Herath said any political party was welcomed to join this protest which would be launched against the suppression of former General’s fundamental rights. (Yohan Perera)

    My blood pressure goes up when I see this great man who fought to death for my country in JAIL and the brutal terrorists in parliament enjoying luxury at the expense of tax payers.

    God Munnessaran will take care of this government!!!

    Mevan Tuesday, 07 February 2012 03:38 PM

    Not the General but all those weak kneed cowards who ran away from the army without even staying in the country should apologize to the people of Sri Lanka.

    anton Tuesday, 07 February 2012 09:16 AM

    Its not general who should appologize but the idiotic UNP JVP and Opportunistic NGO clan must.

    sameera Tuesday, 07 February 2012 06:22 AM

    why should General apologies ?

    steve Tuesday, 07 February 2012 06:34 AM

    why should he?
    the country owes an apology to him!

    priyanga Tuesday, 07 February 2012 06:35 AM

    We will appologise on behalf of our hero General SF...

    "appologise for saving our mother lanka from LTTE " as this is the only fault SF has done

    Pina Tuesday, 07 February 2012 06:52 AM

    If he apologises then he goes to the Hague to answer for war crimes while the other culprits get away. That is the cunning behind the call for an apology. He is a war hero nevertheless who does not deserve the treatment he is getting unlike the other culprits.

    DANUNA - T Tuesday, 07 February 2012 06:52 AM

    so let him be there until the punishment period is over..

    gajan99 Tuesday, 07 February 2012 03:15 PM

    No apology. Then let SF to be in the Jail for life time.

    sasanka Tuesday, 07 February 2012 07:22 AM

    What he appologise for? General is truly a great man.

    mohan s Tuesday, 07 February 2012 07:40 AM

    people who stole the tsunami aid and transferred in to private accounts and people who tried to steal the EPF of the workers are ruling this country and to whom are we to apologise to?

    krishan canagasabey Tuesday, 07 February 2012 03:26 PM

    madam,

    He has some time ago though, when he was jaffna commander, there are mass graves all over, and no doubt some of those murdered were LTTE but just like during the JVP time many civilians were also murdered, so he is a mass murderer, full stop.
