Hot water for Sarath Fonseka

28 February 2011 07:16 am - 29     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The Colombo High Court today ordered Prison officials to provide hot water to the imprisoned former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka after it was brought to the notice of the Court that the hot water facility provided by the Court to him was not being provided by the Prison officials.

The jailor in his response said they had not received any instructions in this regard from Prison Headquarters, Judge Warawewa said once the court made an order it was the duty of those responsible to carry out the order and not wait for instructions from Prison Headquarters.

Judge Deepali Wijesundera then sternly warned prison authorities to immediately carry out the order and provide the necessary facilities to General Fonseka and submit a report to court at the next date.  (TFT)

    Providing hot eater is nothing compared to his services to the nation. Just think of the facilitites provided to KP.
