Ranil concerned over Fonseka

30 March 2010 02:30 pm - 35     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe has called on the government to send a medical team headed by Sarath Fonseka’s personal doctor and another medical officer nominated by the Director General of Health Services to examine the detained General and provide required treatment.

Wickremesinghe said in a statement today that the UNP was concerned about Fonseka’s health especially because he was a person whose body was weak after the suicide bomb attack he had to face in 2006.

“It is inhuman to treat a hero who faced such an attack in the manner he is being treated now,” Wickramasinghe said in a statement.

He stressed the need for allowing Fonseka’s personal physician to see him in accordance with medical ethics.

    When a person is in custody, the 'prison doctor' examines the man or women, not a private doctor. All are entitled to equal rights, not special rights, but since he is a 'war hero,' let's send his doctor to see what is wrong with him ...

    Doesn't anyone in this country care about humanity? Isn't this the key person who was behind our war victory? Who put his country before self? Wake-up people ...

    We need to rally around the General to protect him.

    Tuesday, 30 March 2010 10:54 PM

    All are equal before the law. Mr. Ranil, please remember this.

    Sf was checked by Medical staff in presence of Mrs. SF. He is in good health. Wonder why Ranil is still concerned

    Nalin, You say crimes? What are the crimes he has committed. All fabricated ones! People know it.

    Wednesday, 31 March 2010 03:05 AM

    Nature may punish the falsehood sooner. Until we have to look on.

    Wednesday, 31 March 2010 03:23 AM

    dass we have better things to do

    Tuesday, 30 March 2010 08:11 PM

    Why can't Ranil take-up this matter with the UN and the West?

    Wednesday, 31 March 2010 04:26 AM

    Sri Lankan government won't listen to the UN....

    Wednesday, 31 March 2010 05:32 AM

    Undemocratic?! what do you say about Col. Sha De Silva?

    Wednesday, 31 March 2010 06:24 AM

    If as akon says all are equal before the law how come the army officers who campaigned over the TV for the UPFA are not court martialled?

    Wednesday, 31 March 2010 06:41 AM

    I think the days of the Rajapakse regime are numbered. Justice will be meted out.

    Wednesday, 31 March 2010 07:34 AM

    Why can't the Buddhist Prelates vent their opinion on this injustice.

    Wednesday, 31 March 2010 07:49 AM

    This crime list is enough for the life time sentense.

    Wednesday, 31 March 2010 11:10 AM

    Mr. Dass everybody put the country before ourselfs. that is how we won the war, not only SF all of us.

    Tuesday, 30 March 2010 05:06 PM

    Ranil 'sings a lullaby' ... for his 'cry-baby'!

    Tuesday, 30 March 2010 03:13 PM

    If it is true, must be for the first time. Ranil is more concerned of his position than anything else.

    Tuesday, 30 March 2010 03:43 PM

    May Triple Gems & God Bless our "Brave " Genaral! Sri, you take our lives & live long.

    Tuesday, 30 March 2010 03:48 PM

    First they robed his war victory. Secondly they robbed his election victory. Next they robbed his feedom & dignity. Before they rob his life, please share the word with everyone..." Let's do our part for a "TRUE HERO"....

    Tuesday, 30 March 2010 04:21 PM

    After his meeting with MR earlier on Ranil had forgotten about SF, why sudden interest, has Ranil's vote bank dropped.

    Tuesday, 30 March 2010 04:24 PM

    Is this Sri Lanka or Burma?

    Tuesday, 30 March 2010 04:29 PM

    Dear General please change your name to DAYA MASTER
    for our sake to get first class treatment.

    Tuesday, 30 March 2010 04:44 PM

    Very Well Said !.

    Tuesday, 30 March 2010 05:02 PM

    The persons responsible for this inhuman act will have to pay.

    Tuesday, 30 March 2010 02:41 PM

    Sir. You should know by now what this deadly Government is like. There is no use. They just want all their opponents dead or missing

    Tuesday, 30 March 2010 05:37 PM

    My heart goes out to you, Gen. Sir ... It's SL's fate ...

    Tuesday, 30 March 2010 05:38 PM

    'Crocodile' Ranil in 'tears'!

    Tuesday, 30 March 2010 06:22 PM

    Sri Lankans must go to the streets ... otherwise nature will punish all those who ignored this injustiice ...

    Tuesday, 30 March 2010 06:30 PM

    Looking at the list of crimes SF has been involved in, the only temporary way out is on medical grounds. I see his lawyers have already started to exploit this, together with Ranil ...

    Tuesday, 30 March 2010 06:36 PM

    Ranil, dear Ranil, anything for a bit of free publicity? He is learning from UK politcians ...

    Tuesday, 30 March 2010 07:23 PM

    Another election 'gundu' by Ranil. Fortunately, the voting public is not stupid to believe him.

    Tuesday, 30 March 2010 07:45 PM

    A most cruel and undemocratic regime ...
