    lenny Thursday, 22 January 2015 04:25 PM

    Read the constitution Pubic, sorry Public, the President has the legal right to reinstate the General.

    Sim Wednesday, 21 January 2015 07:45 PM

    The conspirators with the LTTE should be punished

    ebeyah Wednesday, 21 January 2015 07:47 PM

    you should have asked this question when they put SF in Prison!

    anthe Wednesday, 21 January 2015 07:55 PM

    Well done Sir.

    Asiri Wednesday, 21 January 2015 08:09 PM

    President has acted according to the law. Actually Commander Sarath Fonseka has been given the presidential pardon.

    websavy Wednesday, 21 January 2015 08:10 PM

    Good move. When are we going to revoke all those honorary doctorate given to stogies in previous regime? Can give “Doctorate in Stealing National Wealth” to them

    Professor.J.Jinadasa Wednesday, 21 January 2015 08:10 PM

    Excellent move taken by the Excellency, Congratulations.Jinadasa

    Hemantha Thursday, 22 January 2015 10:08 AM

    Shehan Wednesday, 21 January 2015 06:16 PM

    A Great move by our new President to restore all the decorations and positions to our Great War Hero who was solely responsible for strategizing and winning the long drawn out war which ravaged our beloved Country for decades. He was so unfairly victimized for political reasons and striped of all his medals, rank and position.A Great example of the Maithree palanaya to bring justice and fair play to those harassed and victimized by the previous regime.

    Preethi Galgamuwa Wednesday, 21 January 2015 06:16 PM

    At last!The country has paid off a big debt.

    Waco Wednesday, 21 January 2015 08:58 PM

    Mr.President General Sarath Fonseka will be an Asset to the nation. He has the capacity to work. Make him the Deputy Minister of Defence, Minister in-charge of the Department of Police, Port Authority, and the Minister of Agriculture . We can rest assure there will be decipline in the country.

    munas Wednesday, 21 January 2015 09:04 PM

    The order came from the president. Read the constitution and learn a little bit about the power of the president of Sri Lanka

    Shehan Wednesday, 21 January 2015 06:25 PM

    I fully endorse your comments Preethi. Finally a HUGE DEBT has been paid off. The General almost lost his life like the former President CBK while tackling the terrorist issues and both were harassed by the former regime for political reasons.

    Kithudugama Thursday, 22 January 2015 01:06 AM

    Now the people will know who the real war hero is !!!

    Indika Wednesday, 21 January 2015 09:07 PM

    I wish he would not go for Marshal title. Because he will be known for all history as THE GENERAL.

    Waco Wednesday, 21 January 2015 09:11 PM

    To the Hon: President of Sri Lanka. " Uththamachara " from the entire nation.

    public Wednesday, 21 January 2015 06:31 PM

    what about rule of law? Goverment instructing the authorities on what to do?

    Gihan perera Wednesday, 21 January 2015 06:33 PM

    Well done sir! justice has done.

    Parakrama Wednesday, 21 January 2015 09:14 PM

    After all SF wont end up in the dustbin of history. He is a national hero!

    Madlin Wednesday, 21 January 2015 06:32 PM

    Our President has kept his word. via DM Android App
