Former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka, who is currently serving a jail term, has reportedly requested to meet Commissioner General of Prisons Major General V.R De Silva. Prisons Department sources said that following the request made by Mr. Fonseka, the Prisons Chief is to meet his one time Commander at his office most probably tomorrow morning (07).
Can the military courts also please take away the wounds and scars in his body - like they did to his medals, ranks, benefits ?

He was a lion but joined with donkeys(JVP) and wolves(RW & MS) and now he became a bull. He doesn't have any simple strategy in political but he didn't know even that.

Was there law in UNP regime ?? What happened to Ms. Bandaranayake's civil rights ?? What happened to Vijaya Kumarathunga's rights, How was "Ettha" news paper those time ? Full of white patches due to sensors. What happen in 1988-90 period ?? Dead bodies all along roads and rivers. Where was the law at that time ?? Is there 1/10 of them right now ??? We are not reborn. May be most of commenters are small kids or haven't born at that time. But that is the truth of UNP democracy and law.

All these mentioned items may be true. They may be wrong deeds. Just because there were wrong doings in previous times, should that trend be continued? For how many years are we going to refer those bad things?
Pwc, are you a person who keeps notes of and all mistakes and bad things your parents, relations, wife/husband previously did, do you make new judgment based on all the bad things ?
ruwan Thursday, 07 October 2010 10:44 AM

If and when this happens Major V.R. de Silva will be replaced by a government stooge who has earlier been punished by the General.
Ranjit Thursday, 07 October 2010 12:28 AM
Or is it the prison chief that wants to meet SF to show his powers? Tit for Tat
Uragodage Thursday, 07 October 2010 12:44 AM
Dear Commissioner, SF is a good leader so please treat and respect him as a leader of all of us than a 4 star general in the Army

Trying to bypass the system?
Urala Thursday, 07 October 2010 01:52 AM
SF has a serious complex. He should see a psychiatrist, not the Prisons commissioner.
Roshan DW Thursday, 07 October 2010 02:13 AM
I am sure he will have favour.
Anver Thursday, 07 October 2010 02:34 AM
The General's popularity has increased tremendously after he was put behind bars. Let the Prisons commissioner remember this and treat him accordingly.
