Colombo High Court a short while ago granted conditional cash bail of Rs. one million with two sureties of Rs. 2.5 million each on former army commander Sarath Fonseka in the case of harbouring army deserters during the presidential election.
His passport was impounded.
However, he is yet to go free as he is serving the sentence of the white flag case on which an appeal has been filed.

By the time SF gets bail on the rest of the cases(hopefully) he'd be stone broke to do anything else. At least he is out and can now breath some fresh air and recuperate Welcome back our General!.
Kusum E Saturday, 19 May 2012 01:22 AM

Cynic Saturday, 19 May 2012 05:32 AM
Why impound his Passport, if it is unconditional?
Cynic Sunday, 20 May 2012 10:12 AM
He will have to appeal to his Son-in-law for Bail.

For How long? Still smell something fishy here. However, he never deserved to be jailed.
Sue Friday, 18 May 2012 06:01 AM
What is this conditional bail? We though he was going to be freed unconditionally?
Bigfoot Friday, 18 May 2012 06:03 AM
Thanks the US and the EU.
Dilan Friday, 18 May 2012 06:05 AM
Expect some fire crackers on the road
deen Friday, 18 May 2012 06:05 AM
Luck is on SF's side. HE President is going to free SF and here the Court allows bail. If SF buys a lottery ticket he would stand a chance of winning it too.
sam_sparrow Friday, 18 May 2012 06:08 AM

modaya Friday, 18 May 2012 06:28 AM
woudnt you think that these two are all scripted and interlinked? Do you honestly beleive granting of bail is on the merits of bail application, and no other connections?
ABDUL Friday, 18 May 2012 06:29 AM
