    How many politicians on both sides of the divide spoke to Sarath Weerasekera, while he was in uniform? It d0es seem likely because he entered politics about 3 days after his official retirement.

    He sold his principles, he sold his party by crossing over and now selling his ethics. What is left for selling now is his wife and children.

    SW Tuesday, 10 August 2010 10:09 AM

    He is going to be a minister very soon.

    Ravana Tuesday, 10 August 2010 09:54 AM

    He probably has a case pending against him or the Government has evidence of some nefarious activity and he is being forced to do this.

    As said earlier wretched soul !

    UNL Tuesday, 10 August 2010 09:41 AM

    SF sold whole country by saying the white flag story.

    Senior Citizen Tuesday, 10 August 2010 09:36 AM

    Yes only when the cows come home or Rajapakse's are no more in power.

    Chaminda Tuesday, 10 August 2010 09:26 AM

    His stand was public long ago. What else we need to wait for when everything else is crystal clear. He is a LTTE supporter, especially during the war, and now his chance to get Gen caught up in any trap.

    Bambuwa Tuesday, 10 August 2010 09:12 AM

    It is compulsory to testify if called by any court. Wait and hear his evidence before you comment.

    MoMo Tuesday, 10 August 2010 09:08 AM

    its another pathetic situation... lets hope justice will win at last and everyone get treated fair and equal under law

    Sk Tuesday, 10 August 2010 08:46 AM

    Power hungers, after all these are over remember you will be nothing.

    Bluff Bluff Tuesday, 10 August 2010 08:44 AM

    The main reason why UNP is suffering today is because of disgraceful members of the party like this man.

    Concerned Tuesday, 10 August 2010 08:42 AM

    The entire UNP and its party members condemn those Court Martial, and this man goes and serves it. Pathetic!

    malkanthi Tuesday, 10 August 2010 08:41 AM

    Exactly, too many people are doing laundry for the government. They have sold their soul to the devil.

    Gayan Samarasekara Tuesday, 10 August 2010 08:32 AM

    Wretched soul. What has Lakshman Seneviratne done for the country compared with Gen Fonseka??
