Buddhist prelates to talk to Mahinda Rajapakse on Fonseka release

[TamilNet, Sunday, 26 September 2010, 09:10 GMT]
Mahanayake Theras of two Chapters Malwatte and Asgiriya are reported to have assured Anoma Fonseka, wife of the detained former commander of the Sri Lanka Army that they would take up the issue of release of her husband with Sri Lanka President Mahinda Rajapakse when he returns from New York on Monday. Both Mahanayake Theras are said to have given the assurance to Anoma Fonseka when she met them and pleaded for the release of her husband, Sunday in Kandy.

Political sources said that if the intervention of the Buddhist prelates fails, Sarath Fonseka will probably be shifted to a prison. He is now in Sri Lanka Navy Headquarters under detention since he lost in the last president election held in January 26 to the incumbent President.

Fonseka was sentenced to a term of three years imprisonment by the Court Martial Two on being found guilty for harboring army deserters. The sentence will come into effect once the President ratified it, sources in Colombo said.

SL President has already ratified the first verdict of the Court Martial One against that Fonseka be stripped of the rank of General, medal and promotion for having involved in politics while serving as the Commander of SL Army.
