The former Army Commander will not bend down and ask for forgiveness from the President as he is innocent and this is nothing but a revengeful act against MP Sarath Fonseka, DNA General Secretary MP Vijitha Herath told Daily Mirror online.

Further responding to the media report that the President might reconsider the decision given by the second Court Martial if MP Sarath Fonseka makes a request, MP Herath added that this was exactly what the government wanted and that Sarath Fonseka will not ask for forgiveness as he was innocent and the public knew this.

He added that public support island wide for the release of Fonseka will be mustered and that Fonseka and he will be freed by a civilian Court.

The former Army Chief was transferred to the Welikada Prison on September 30th after the President ratified the 30 month rigorous imprisonment which was recommended by the second Court Martial. (Daily Mirror online)

    This is a Disaster for our country !

    Thomas Friday, 01 October 2010 12:17 PM

    Rightly said. No sane man can beg pardon for what he did not commit

    palitha Friday, 01 October 2010 12:38 PM

    Lee kuwan yew's comment about mahinda rajapaksha is true, not only sri lankans, but also world leaders know who he is. this is another proof.

    palitha Friday, 01 October 2010 12:39 PM

    mad man, be silent.

    s fernando Saturday, 02 October 2010 05:37 PM

    you will have your day General.

    Mike Friday, 01 October 2010 07:22 AM

    Bravo General Barvo..... It's time for the Army to Release General and start the 2nd War to send MR family to Welikada

    s.jayawardene Friday, 01 October 2010 07:24 AM

    You successfully helped him to go to jail. You equated him to your level. You will forget him soon. Time to think on out ground you wanted to make him your leader

    SANDEEP Friday, 01 October 2010 07:24 AM

    we are with our great general, till we die., hero's never die

    DILHAN Friday, 01 October 2010 07:30 AM

    The man with the back bone... god bless u sir

    Siva Friday, 01 October 2010 07:33 AM

    Nxt MR..!!!

    Ryan Friday, 01 October 2010 07:34 AM

    These are the people who put SF in jail. Still they are trying toi cheat people. Problem is still few people are caught in this trap. Evidence to this is electing Paba to Parliament.

    RupasingheR Friday, 01 October 2010 07:37 AM

    You and your gang is responsibel for destroying our hero. Leave him alone.

    rasika Friday, 01 October 2010 07:39 AM

    Don't make political advantages by shedding crocodile tears. We know that who JVPers are.

    Above the crowd Friday, 01 October 2010 07:39 AM

    Real leaders don't beg for forgiveness ,Only the Cowards do.

    underground Friday, 01 October 2010 07:49 AM

    SF would move mountains for MR, but MR treats him like dirt. Is this according to Dhammapada?

    kassa Friday, 01 October 2010 07:51 AM

    I think most of the JVP's involved to make it happens to General Sarath Fonseka. Now his has to pay for everyone.

    Teena Saturday, 02 October 2010 10:27 AM

    Not really, it was the JVP that helped MR to come in to power. They have been good as bad just like the other parties. The JVPers shouldn't made the scapegoats all the time.

    Nilantha Friday, 01 October 2010 07:54 AM

    Very true

    Pushpaka Friday, 01 October 2010 07:55 AM

    The JVP is silently happy that SF is in Jail. Two reasons - They have a slogan to capitalize on politically, and the next in line from the Colombo district to Parliament is a JVP'er.

    channa Friday, 01 October 2010 08:04 AM

    Because of you all..he deserve this...

    ashoka Saturday, 02 October 2010 10:39 AM

    JVP ALONG WITH MANGALA GAVE THE DEAD ROAP TO GEN. SARATH F. WHO NEW NOTHING ABOUT POLITICS,AT LEAST NOW LET HIM TAKE HIS OWN DECISIONS FOR HIS FUTURE PLANS
    MADAM FONSEKA, PLEASE NOTE.

    pranandu Friday, 01 October 2010 08:05 AM

    We Sri Lankans are proud of you Gen. SF. Let the spin less politicians learn their A B C from from you.

    KD Friday, 01 October 2010 08:16 AM

    JVP keeps on riding SFs back. They are responsible for his fall.

    Senior citizen Friday, 01 October 2010 08:16 AM

    We need more Gen Fonsekas in this country.Because he has a back bone.

    Hash Friday, 01 October 2010 08:21 AM

    A real Sri lankan Lion will never bend down at another one's feet

    Ranjith Friday, 01 October 2010 08:33 AM

    Why are you happy? Because fulfilment of VP's wishes by a B...King

    JUNIOR CITIZEN Friday, 01 October 2010 08:39 AM

    WHERE DID DHAMMAPADA SAY LET DOWN YOUR COLLEGUES, WITH STORIES OF WHITE FLAGS. TRECHEROUS SF DESERVES

    JUNIOR CITIZEN Friday, 01 October 2010 08:41 AM

    FEW MORE CASES ARE PENDING. BENDING IS INEVITABLE

    KD Friday, 01 October 2010 09:21 PM

    Go and tell that to that to diaspora. They will be happy believe you.

    mali Friday, 01 October 2010 08:55 AM

    Mrs Anoma sends parliment

    perere Friday, 01 October 2010 09:33 PM

    very true statement by kassa..

    kamal nissanka Friday, 01 October 2010 11:33 PM

    Are you interested in workers rights or "General"s rights.
    Why do you so much believing a commander of a capitalist state

    Kanniah Friday, 01 October 2010 09:03 AM

    SF must have been an enlightened one. He would have realised all his mistakes. He should ask pardon not from MR but from God.

    malkanthi Friday, 01 October 2010 09:15 AM

    Being imprisoned is not a shame for a true leader!! Many great leaders in the history of sri lanka and other countries have faced same senario, but their popularity grew immensely !!!

    Gamini Saturday, 02 October 2010 02:35 AM

    SF is suffering today because of these JVPers.

    Girawa Saturday, 02 October 2010 02:37 AM

    Dear God above please punish the individuals who did this to a war hero.

    Ravi Amarasekera Saturday, 02 October 2010 03:19 AM

    samantha Saturday, 02 October 2010 04:42 AM

    our hearts are weiged with sadness
    general of our hearts may God protect you

    spark Friday, 01 October 2010 10:35 AM

    This is the effect of a promise made to Tamil Nadhu policticians by MR on SF for calling them clowns.

    lankaman Friday, 01 October 2010 10:35 AM

    this decision is not for the white flag incident. It is before the courts still. Read before you post

    haneef mohamed Friday, 01 October 2010 10:59 AM

    Genarel please dont bag for your relese

    Mercy Friday, 01 October 2010 11:19 AM

    SF should not ASK for forgiveness, he should GIVE forgiveness to the real traitors, one day.

    Concerned Friday, 01 October 2010 11:21 AM

    He will be the Sri Lanka's Nelson Mandela.

    Bluff Bluff Friday, 01 October 2010 11:25 AM

    A real hero has bullet marks on his chest, and not on his back. The entire nation saw those real bullets marks on General Fonseka's chest. So he is not a cowered.
