Former army commander Sarath Fonseka has instructed his wife and children not to appeal for a pardon on behalf of him, as he had done nothing wrong, Anoma Fonseka told Daily Mirror online.
 

I visited my husband today (08th) after a special request was made and he told me not to apologize as he had done nothing wrong. “If we did something wrong it was compulsory to apologize and if we didn’t we need not do so” Anoma Fonseka said.  (Daily Mirror online)

    SF Never Surrender to the world crurel terrorist why should it be to under world gangsters.

    Nilupul Friday, 08 October 2010 06:21 PM

    Wow, my hats off to you Sir! That was absolutely what the country was expected from you. Don't apologize to any one, unless you are guilty. You have to maintain your tuff leadership you demonstrated, during the war. Because we badly need a one with straight spine!


    (PS. Getting SF to apologize, was what the government wanted, whether he would be released or not. Because then they can tier him to pieces by proving that he was guilty and had no courage to face the sentence. In that term, even SF got released, he would be humiliated in public and be cornered like never can rise again.

    Akon Saturday, 09 October 2010 07:10 AM

    What world are you in? Forgot that he accused the defense secretary of killing LTTE leaders for political gains????

    Roshan DW Saturday, 09 October 2010 07:18 AM

    SF maybe reaping the words he sowed..One should be careful we may have to eat our own words.

    Bimal Friday, 08 October 2010 06:28 PM

    No human being is perfect so is SF but this is certainly not the way to treat a true son of Mother lanka. My dear President we all love you and respect you please release this brave soldier otherwise you will be setting a very poor example especially to the younger generation.

    MI Saturday, 09 October 2010 02:59 PM

    Does not make any difference even he made his request for a pardon as he is being punished.

    He would have been a real barbarean if he won the precidential election.

    entrepenur Friday, 08 October 2010 06:35 PM

    Real ICON I salute him

    gaminiperera Friday, 08 October 2010 06:39 PM

    Shantha Perera Friday, 08 October 2010 07:24 PM

    there is no justification for putting SF brhind bars by MR. JVP and UNP must be held responsible for exploting SF

    Fonseka is the Real leader

    Perera Saturday, 09 October 2010 04:04 PM

    He may be your great general but he's done many wrongs!!! you have to ask the Froces, you have to ask the people.

    Silva Saturday, 09 October 2010 04:05 PM

    What's to be done people forget what he's done.

    Sena Saturday, 09 October 2010 04:06 PM

    Why is Danuna hiding - What did he do with HiCorp and the retired General. People know it - you cannot hide.

    Dilan Friday, 08 October 2010 08:13 PM

    Why should SF pardon in the 1st place ? because of him we have peace to this country.

    Delgoda Friday, 08 October 2010 09:37 PM

    That is correct. Why should they ask for pardon. He is a honest and a brave man. He did nothing. Only did his duties.Jayawaewa SF

    shameer Saturday, 09 October 2010 08:50 AM

    when compared to KP, daya master, karuna, pilleyan, mervin & others; this SF hero is innocent...... he should be released.....

    Rohan Saturday, 09 October 2010 08:50 AM

    As a tamil im so happy, since we have no future and live like slaves it is nce to read pathetic and hyproctic readers here.

    nala3 Saturday, 09 October 2010 05:12 PM

    Nothing is permanent in this world. MR will not be the Ruler forever and SF will not be a prisoner forever!

    Anver Saturday, 09 October 2010 12:14 AM

    Sad the General will have to stay inside. At the same time I admire his steadfastness. Well, any innocent person with self respect will do the same.

    Nihal Saturday, 09 October 2010 09:13 AM

    SF is targeting the Nobel Peace Price. He is trying to follow Liu Xiaobo in China who won it this time... Let him gain it at least and you readers...

    Well said brave Lady, everyone cannot fight against tyranny but those who can must do so or else we will be reduced to the status of a countries of Zombies..

    sw Saturday, 09 October 2010 01:42 AM

    Every joker wants SF to beg for pardon but no one can give any reason why he should do so.

    arasoysa Saturday, 09 October 2010 01:51 AM

    This is correct. Our great heros such as Keppitipola, Gongaleygoda Banda, Veediyey Bandeara spent time in jails. Non of them apologised

    Baba Boo Saturday, 09 October 2010 01:58 AM

    Well sail Sir. We are with you whether you are behind or out side bars. We have a man with a backbone, That is what we need at this hour.

    Ranjith Saturday, 09 October 2010 02:22 AM

    For the sake of mumanity ,graatitude for the outstanding war performance he had done and saved country from LTTE, please release him and let him spend a peacful life.

    Comapre with the wrong things done by Rajapakasa family.

    Even if Mahinda pardons him ,those who were affected by his acts will not pardon him.

    Sumudu Saturday, 09 October 2010 10:01 AM

    Great sir, you are the brave example of our time.We salute you.

    bash Saturday, 09 October 2010 02:58 AM

    This is the caliber of politicians that we need for this country, we all missed out a good brave person for this country... No wonder he lead the army in the ground to war victory.

    Abdul Saturday, 09 October 2010 03:09 AM

    Its funny the govt of Sri Lanka says that if convicted and santenced Ex General's family ask for pardon, he will be forgiven,will this be applicable to others,what Govt"s this gustrure proves that Govt have some other motives and resons for sending the the person who have done a great servics to the counrty.

    farook Saturday, 09 October 2010 03:13 AM

    Absolutely!!! When one is innocent why should he apologize.
    There are so many UNP'ers who have pole vaulted to the government side and also the PA members who are guilty of so many wrong doings and yet they are leading a normal life. There is even a doc without qualifications who is practicing not medicine but a fine art of thuggerism and yet gets away with everything.

    Ranjith Saturday, 09 October 2010 08:23 PM

    Who made the other the President? JVP, LTTE and those who get easily carried away with patriotic idiotic slogans

    Bud in Oz Saturday, 09 October 2010 03:24 AM

    Yes, but SF was imprisoned not for those issues. And the points you have highlighted are just allegations, yet to be proved.

    welldoneJVP Saturday, 09 October 2010 03:33 AM

    Brave man indeed but stupid. Once again fooled by JVP. People will remember you as the biggest looser in the history of man kind.

    Manoj Saturday, 09 October 2010 10:10 PM

    Hey please anyone dont call MR and the government monkey..

    peter Saturday, 09 October 2010 03:43 AM

    This pardon and apology are simply to strike on the face again. Rajapakses once said SF is the best commander but, SF was not swayed a bit. Once that did not work to silence anyone exposing Rajapakse regimes’ own crimes, they turned around and stigmatized SF as a criminal. If it is a real guilt by a criminal or traitor should he be relieved of his wrongdoing by just apologizing to the head of state? It sounds everything is because of Rajapakses’ ego wrapped in enigma.

    JM Saturday, 09 October 2010 10:28 AM

    SF is the Brave Heart of Sri Lanka...
    Well done sir!

    White flag story is under a trial at courts, then no talk.
    Tender Issues : The General has done nothing wrong according to the evidence given by Govt servants.
    US$ Notes : To help the campaign to get rid of this corrupt regime.
    Danuna T. : Is hiding in fear of his life, as there is no law & order in this country under this criminals.

    Any more questions sir ???.

    PW Friday, 08 October 2010 05:38 PM

    I think he's done the right thing. But dear readers - we must accept that as much as what hapenned to him wasn't 'fair', those who are 'shouting' to get him out are the very people who dragged him in to this - UNP and JVP. So, even if there has to be a movement to get him out of jail, please let that not be through UNP and JVP.

    Josh Saturday, 09 October 2010 06:33 AM

    we all will know who the "real" looser is very soon!!!

    Mottayan Saturday, 09 October 2010 06:34 AM

    Then who is telling lie? Mr. Ranil Wickramasingha?

    ruling party should realise that if SF is allowed to complete his jail term, it will make him more stronger "politically"!

    steve Friday, 08 October 2010 05:48 PM

    The history will decide who should apologies in this case not only to SF and his family but the entire nation!
