Field Marshall Sarath Fonseka today challenged President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe to remove Justice Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe from the government, if they wanted to maintain ‘Good Governance’ in the country.

Addressing a news conference, he said the Minister continuing to defend the Avant Garde Maritime Security Company and its floating armoury, when it had been proved that the floating armoury was illegal.

“The Minister continues to mislead people with his false statements in a bid to protect Avant Garde. Even the Attorney General, who retired recently took no action on Avant Garde but immediately directed to arrest MP Hirunika Premachandra. We already know that Justice Minister has links with the maritime company’s Chairman,” he said.

    Good governance has taken a back seat. Today is consolidation of power. We are all one, the Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    Why is SF so angry with government own Avant Garde ?

    Totally agree with SF. The man Wije and Ravi has to go. They are a disgrace to Yahapalanaya

    Ben Hurling Wednesday, 13 January 2016 08:02 PM

    Wijedasa must go.

    Harin Ratna Wednesday, 13 January 2016 09:30 PM

    Totally agree, the country needs to move on without Wijedasa.

    What about Vajira, the Galle district, Minister who had dealings with the owner of Avant garde ? He, too, must be sacked.
