Former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka has prepared a cup of tea using the electric kettle in his cell at the Welikada prison and served it to UNP MP Dayasiri Jayasekera when the latter visited him today.

According to Mr. Jaysekara, the DNA leader starts his day in prison  with religious rituals.  “He also reads newspapers and magazines brought by his friends and relatives and watches TV programmes during his leisure time,” the UNP MP said. (KB)

    General, you will be out someday, which would mark a new beginning for the country. People are still with you sir..

    Don Friday, 22 October 2010 06:22 PM

    Not a bad life for a prisoner: watching TV, reading newspapers and making a cuppa whenever he wants.

    Housni Friday, 22 October 2010 08:42 AM

    Freedom is a relative thing.

    To you, freedom may be having the option to be able to see your children whenever you want to.

    To me, it might be having the option to leave my country to visit someone else whenever I want to.

    To SF, it might be having the option to put his talents to good use whenever he wants to.

    Sri Friday, 22 October 2010 08:43 AM

    Aiyo he would have got Anoma to make hundreds of cups of tea to everybody if he did not venture into politics and instead retired gracefully as the commander who won the war.
    Pitted against MR at elections he lost badly. That means though people respected him as war hero they did not want him as a politician.
    Admit this reality.

    Jix Friday, 22 October 2010 08:44 AM

    You might be on to something here... The laws of nature is not something that could be easily undestood by mankind and it does work in mysterious ways..

    sethu Friday, 22 October 2010 08:47 AM

    yes , Megastar Hot Shots IV

    Alipola Friday, 22 October 2010 08:50 AM

    Seems like he is having a cool time, does he get "Congenial visits" as well? Hope so!

    shovini Saturday, 23 October 2010 03:38 PM

    I believe so myself. Jesus Christ will lead and guide him

    citizen1 Friday, 22 October 2010 07:16 PM

    and ridiculous!

    peiris Friday, 22 October 2010 08:54 AM

    SF Your day will come very soon. The nation is with you

    Jix Friday, 22 October 2010 08:55 AM

    or it could just be common courtesy noh... The earth isnt flat even though it looks to be so is it..

    Kalani Raja Friday, 22 October 2010 08:00 PM

    The best army commander in the world according to Defence Secretary is now making cup of tea at the prison. It can only happen in this land which has already become the wonder of Asia in my view.

    David Friday, 22 October 2010 08:55 AM

    Even if SF makes a tea in the prison , its a breaking news for DM, I can't stop laughing ....!!!

    Boa Friday, 22 October 2010 08:38 PM

    simple man and moreover a well mannered gentleman who knows host-guest responsibility even when he's in a jail cell.... what a champion!

    RanFerdi Friday, 22 October 2010 08:59 AM

    Dear Sri, Don't argue on someones rights put you in same place as General is.. He did his part for the country on the battle field and he wants to do more.. That's how he got to politics and he came from the side what he believe right to enter is.. You as government supporters are got irritated with this means you are against the democratic principles. Admit that reality too..

    Ranjit Friday, 22 October 2010 09:01 AM

    Sajith visit the General in prison. Discuss with him of forming a new party, under Generals leadership and your support as the deputy. Give him the first term to clean all the rubbish and after his first term you can take over the country to alleviate poverty. We don't want any Singapores here, we want only the very basics. I am sure JVP will also support the new party. Prison is a good place for a birth of a new party. You have no future in UNP until all your seniors die, you are like the General a prisoner entangled in the party reforms.

    malkanthi Friday, 22 October 2010 09:05 AM

    Without any knoweldge about spirituality you are making a mockery of the living God.

    malkanthi Friday, 22 October 2010 09:06 AM

    If you go by picture painted about SF by his supporters, then you are right, but it is not so!

    Bakamoona Friday, 22 October 2010 09:08 AM

    Glad to hear that he's got the most important things in his cell. Thanks to people who fought to get all those for SF.

    Jix Friday, 22 October 2010 09:17 AM

    'living god'? i rest my case..

    Nishantha Rajapakse Friday, 22 October 2010 11:04 PM

    Even in hunger, lions do not eat grass! The lions of sri lanka who have a vision...a vision for a better tomorrow!

    Lalith Friday, 22 October 2010 09:27 AM

    Nature will decide the fate of SF. Because we have no more hope of Judiciary system or justice in this country. Those who sacrifice their life for the country is in jail while those who ruined in power. "Soba dam mathavani ithirya obata barai".

    Galibba Saturday, 23 October 2010 12:08 AM

    you are a person who doesnt have a quality background

    Galibba Saturday, 23 October 2010 12:09 AM

    ya MR and his family has made billions of dollars. y not SF??

    sw Friday, 22 October 2010 09:30 AM

    Sajith is one of those who vehemently opposed UNP contesting the general election on a common front with DNF. He felt that his aspirations will not be fulfilled as long as SF was in the fore front. 18th Amendment would have never have been passed if the opposition had continued as a common front.

    Girawa Saturday, 23 October 2010 09:37 PM

    Absolutely mate!

    Citzen Silvas Saturday, 23 October 2010 12:36 AM

    Go not to the temple to ask for forgiveness for your sins, First forgive from your heart those who have sinned against you.”

    sw Friday, 22 October 2010 09:39 AM

    Most sensible thing to do, with Ranil hanging into power UNP is doomed, even if Ranil goes there is no acceptable leader to take over.

    NISSANKA Friday, 22 October 2010 09:39 AM

    I agree with you Malkanthi.
    Rasa ahara kawala run kuduwe damala.

    Why prisoners are treated differently in Democratic SOCIALIST republic of Sri lanka?

    Niro Friday, 22 October 2010 09:50 AM

    What a system we have....descrimenation all over
    ...

    Niro Friday, 22 October 2010 09:53 AM

    also no nobody talks about why prisoners are treated differently.....

    uditha Friday, 22 October 2010 09:55 AM

    This is a battle hardened true soldier of Sri Lanka. He was facing bullets and was ready to die in the battle field. That is why he is not ruffled by being in the jail. We need true leaders like you and not the shoe lickers

    Niro Friday, 22 October 2010 09:55 AM

    my concern as well.........

    Dheen Friday, 22 October 2010 10:00 AM

    I have a feeling that MR's conscience is making SF a popular figure. There is no doubt that SF will ascend the throne.

    Ram Friday, 22 October 2010 10:00 AM

    Even in prison he get special treatments than other prisoners? this is not normal

    nikita Saturday, 23 October 2010 02:31 AM

    Good gracious, according to dayasiri, General is having a luxurious life in prision is IT? what is he up to

    roadrunner Saturday, 23 October 2010 02:43 AM

    will they remove the kettle from the cell?

    Calistus Jayatilleke Friday, 22 October 2010 10:40 AM

    Hospitality even in adversity !

    Kalu Sudda Friday, 22 October 2010 10:45 AM

    As usual some guys are lucky.He must be living in a 5star hotel.lol

    Smart Aleck Friday, 22 October 2010 11:03 AM

    Will the General end up like Aung Sang Su Ki?

    nandana Saturday, 23 October 2010 03:47 AM

    You are wrong.He is a good commander. Government uses his skill to win the war. Politically he is a fool .This is what a political fool is deserved.

    garawi Saturday, 23 October 2010 03:48 AM

    And he has TV also? Well misusing power is an offense, he now knows!

    Shantha Perera Friday, 22 October 2010 11:05 AM

    I think Ranil and his group must give a tea party to SF for contesting as a common candidate that help Ranil to retain his leadership in UNP until today

    Wasantha Saturday, 23 October 2010 03:52 AM

    Definitely it is better than black coffee that RW had with MR at temple trees.However SF tea is a real taste of genuineness & hospitality, unlike hidden agendas exposed after having fake black coffee.

    manju Saturday, 23 October 2010 04:01 AM

    Our GOD helps only ppl with good intentions not comvicts

    maverickk Friday, 22 October 2010 11:11 AM

    the comments are so hillarious...

    Siri Friday, 22 October 2010 11:17 AM

    Shantha Perera - Quite correct. People still blame the President and Govt. for putting SF behind bars. They did nothing like that! It is a sin and crime to accuse the govt. There!

    ND Friday, 22 October 2010 11:50 AM

    Stone walls do not a prison make
    nor iron bars a cage;
    Minds innocent and quiet take
    that for an hermitage
    _Lovelace - To Althea From Prison

    However, I doubt SF has an innocent or quiet mind. Now, think of Nelson Mandela, Nehru etc. People who did have intelligence and wisdomand used all that to make a lot out of their time in prison.

    SF can still redeem himself. But I wont really count on that. it takes a certain finesse, and SF lacks that.

    gUL fERNANDO Saturday, 23 October 2010 04:54 AM

    One questions, first why no tea to Ranil, Ravi and Mangala? as SF believ they are the once put him into troubles

    ND Friday, 22 October 2010 12:01 PM

    Safer for himself or the country and the rest of us?

    ND Friday, 22 October 2010 12:03 PM

    Your "reality" does not seem reality-based. Sad.

    Sarath Friday, 22 October 2010 12:10 PM

    Is all prisoners get electric kettles????

    kassa Saturday, 23 October 2010 05:22 AM

    Really This is another drama.

    sol Saturday, 23 October 2010 05:31 AM

    what is he complaining about prison conditions. normal prisoners never get facilities to treat friends in the prison we know

    Saradial Saturday, 23 October 2010 06:12 AM

    Third term is the real example for Thanhaya Jayathi Soko

    Saradial Saturday, 23 October 2010 06:14 AM

    He is the leader who will save our country from gangs of thieves and thugs.

    Podi Wije Saturday, 23 October 2010 06:16 AM

    This is too much for a traitor!!!!

    hemantha Saturday, 23 October 2010 06:32 AM

    7000 odds Readers viewed this article..hummmm ! Oh god !

    JD Tuesday, 26 October 2010 12:43 PM

    SF is a great man. Only thing he should have known that politics here is no fair game.

    nalaka pathirana Friday, 22 October 2010 01:28 PM

    Real life simple man -next leader of Sri Lanka

    Nelson Mendela in sri lanka -Only our Hope

    S. Fonseka Saturday, 23 October 2010 08:14 AM

    You are welcome.

    sam Friday, 22 October 2010 01:36 PM

    JVP did big mistake.

    gona Saturday, 23 October 2010 08:24 AM

    ow.ow

    kulendran Friday, 22 October 2010 02:01 PM

    Janaka-DXB Friday, 22 October 2010 02:07 PM

    Thanhaya Jayathi Soko....SF why did youn enter politics..To make more money, isn't it ????

    JAYA Friday, 22 October 2010 02:11 PM

    he is making tea for visiters

    Game kolla Friday, 22 October 2010 02:22 PM

    Dear General, please do not trust any one other than your wife.

    chami Friday, 22 October 2010 02:40 PM

    What is the importance in this news?????

    Wak Perera Friday, 22 October 2010 02:43 PM

    The Great General knows who are genuinely supporting and respecting him. Dayasiri is one such politico irrespective of being a UNPer. That is why he has served him with a cup of tea. Dayasiri is a fearless person and general likes fearless and truthful kind.

    Musthafa Saturday, 23 October 2010 09:50 AM

    good

    JUNIOR CITIZEN Friday, 22 October 2010 03:32 PM

    wasala ,he should be transfered to hard labour section .why this discrimination

    Kundu mama Saturday, 23 October 2010 11:06 AM

    SF is LAnka's Gandi.

    JUNIOR CITIZEN Friday, 22 October 2010 03:34 PM

    what do you mean by poeple? pl clarify

    polkiccha Saturday, 23 October 2010 11:24 AM

    and lions don't drink tea...so obviously he uses the electric kettle to make tea for visitors.

    Lion Friday, 22 October 2010 03:42 PM

    Great.. let us all use GSF instead of SF. Now he is people's General.

    Anura Saturday, 23 October 2010 11:38 AM

    He..he, Hire innakota tea thamai gahanna wenne.

    kulendran Friday, 22 October 2010 03:59 PM

    yeah wait till the judgment for White flag is over....

    Yusuf Friday, 22 October 2010 03:59 PM

    yes, a war criminal. I hope he ends up like Idi Amin. sf is the worst thing to have happened to sri lanka. he is nothing short of a criminal.

    channa Friday, 22 October 2010 04:00 PM

    pls dont insult Nelson Mendela.

    Kokiya Friday, 22 October 2010 04:38 PM

    you seems to live in the same world that SF lives.

    sw Saturday, 23 October 2010 12:25 PM

    There are lots of ungrateful and ignorant Sinhalese people in this country, who else can call the Liberator a traitor.

    dass_1215 Friday, 22 October 2010 04:38 PM

    If he is a fool how he became the army commander ?
    Whoever made him the army commander must be a super fool then.

    Kokiya Friday, 22 October 2010 04:48 PM

    lucky SF made the tea. If it was Dayasiri ,Tea eka rasa naa kiyala kanata gahai

    see my willie Saturday, 23 October 2010 12:58 PM

    Sometimes prison life can make people better. See, he is now making tea for his visitors.Better to keep him there.

    Hasitha Friday, 22 October 2010 04:58 PM

    Wht 2 do other than doing those kind of things to waste the time.. People tend to learn religious rituals, only when they do wrong & get into trouble like these

    nayan Friday, 22 October 2010 08:11 AM

    general, be careful with politicco

    cha Saturday, 23 October 2010 01:24 PM

    Heee heeee

    FEROZ Friday, 22 October 2010 08:15 AM

    SF is still winner, Common rule of third world is either your are in Throne or Prison.
    I strongly believe, SF is being prepared to be next leader by GOD.

    oooman Friday, 22 October 2010 08:18 AM

    Cool future leaders in SL...
    GSF is having a fun time...take a good rest over there GSF...when you come back you have a lot to do...people are waiting for you...

    Shantha Perera Friday, 22 October 2010 08:19 AM

    UNP and JVP got together and put SF brhind bars. SF is a fool who got caught to the trap.

    NADARAJAH SETHURUPAN Friday, 22 October 2010 08:19 AM

    Electric kettle in his cell? TV programmes "including" Singing tips to MP Dayasiri Jayasekara from Mervin Silva.

    wasala Friday, 22 October 2010 08:26 AM

    Admit it, things are not that bad for general in prison. He gets visitors almost everyday and it looks that is being well looked after.

    Some relief!

    mervyn gas Friday, 22 October 2010 05:48 PM

    Wow. An electric kettle in his prison. Is he treated as a special case? There should be no favouritism. next he will ask for a home Entertainment set.

    malkanthi Friday, 22 October 2010 08:30 AM

    Amazing! if SF made a cup of tea means SF is extremely pleased with dayasiri. TV program at leisure, no option for TV channels and its pretty frustrating?

    Kokiya Friday, 22 October 2010 08:31 AM

    i should go to prison as well. Need to watch TV

    Above the crowd Friday, 22 October 2010 08:32 AM

    The breakaway U N P group and some J V P ers must get together and form a new party under the leader ship of the
    General. Dayasiri must play the leading role . Don't get the U N P mutts who support Ranil.

    prabhoda Friday, 22 October 2010 08:35 AM

    Next time there will be a musical show in the cell. No wonder general is looking quite healthy and prosperous despite being in prison.
    Anyhow he is safer there than out.

    SL Boy Friday, 22 October 2010 08:35 AM

    Ranil also tasted tea when he visited MR and some UNP members voted for amendment with UPFA. now Mr. Dayasiri tasted tea with SF. what will happen next.. ????

    malkanthi Friday, 22 October 2010 08:38 AM

    wasala if you are confined even in a palace, it may sound luxury, but for SF it must be still like being in walikada! He is a hard working, potential, determined personality not a lethargy, hopeless,useless good for nothing politico.

    Kokiya Friday, 22 October 2010 08:40 AM

    exactly....Illagena kaamak
