CID Questions Fonseka Over Lasantha’s Murder Finally; Lasantha’s Brother Dismisses Allegations

In a dramatic turn of events the investigation into the murder of Lasantha Wickrematunge, the CID questioned Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka yesterday. Colombo Telegraph recently commented as to why Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka and former Secretary of Defence have not been questioned in regard to the above mentioned murder. According to Field Marshal Fonseka, he was questioned for five hours by the CID yesterday into the Lasantha Wickrematunge murder.

Participating in the Sirasa Satana programme Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka confirmed that he was questioned by the CID into the Lasantha murder investigation. He went on to suggest that it was Gotabaya Rajapaksa who would have been behind the murder of Lasantha, as the journalist was about to reveal more into the corruption involved with the MiG aircraft purchase. Field Marshal Fonseka also stated in the programme which is available for viewing on Youtube that the security of Colombo was in the hands of Gotabaya Rajapaksa who used Gen. Hendawitharane for this purpose. Special emphasis was laid on the White Van Abduction culture in Colombo. Field Marshal Fonseka went on to say that late Lasantha’s brother Lal Wickrematunge was paid money by the Rajapaksa’s to lay the blame for the murder of his brother on him (Field Marshall Fonseka).

Colombo Telegraph contacted Lal Wickrematunge to respond to this allegation and we publish below the interview in full:

CT: Did you listen to the Youtube interview on Sirasa Satana programme where Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka spoke of your brothers murder?

LW: Yes I did.

CT: He accused you of taking money from Rajapaksa to blame him for your brothers murder.

LW: This is not the first time Field Marshal has said that I have accused him of Lasantha’s murder. He has said this many times before to local media persons and even the BBC.

CT: Did you accuse him of the murder of your brother and if so, what evidence do you have?

LW: I have never accused him.

CT: Then on what basis is he saying that you did? Why have you not said that you did not accuse him prior to this?

LW: Field Marshal Fonseka has not listened carefully to what I have said on many occasions. I have spoken at Lasantha’s memorials as well as in some of my articles written and published in newspapers as well as on TV stated that former President Mahinda Rajapaksa told me three times that it was Sarath Fonseka who killed my brother. I DID NOT SAY THAT. It was the FORMER PRESIDENT who told me that not once but three times. Field Marshal Fonseka is most welcome to go back to such interviews and articles to satisfy himself. There is a distinct difference in my saying and someone else saying such to me and my repeating it.

CT: Did you tell the CID this?

LW: Yes. When I was asked in the course of recording my statement.

CT: Field Marshal accuses you of taking money from the Rajapaksas to do so.

LW: ( Laughs) The Rajapaksas hated us. I won’t dignify such accusation with an answer. Perhaps Field Marshal Fonseka thinks that Rajapaksas bought The Sunday Leader and paid me additionally too to say such things. The sale of the newspaper was done three years after Lasantha’s murder and it was Asanga Seneviratne who bought it. That too the money has not been paid to complete it as yet. I have sent a letter of demand to him.

CT: Why did you not take these issues up before this?

LW: I did. You must not forget that it was the Rajapaksa regime that was in place when Lasantha was killed and thereon up to 2015. I had a lawyer representing the family in the Magistrate’s Court. We wanted the investigation transferred to the CID instead of the TID which was being used to deflect the direction. It took time to do so and in fact it was only after there was a regime change that it was done and the investigation pursued.

CT: Your newspaper supported Gen. Fonseka at the Presidential election. So, why does he accuse you now?

LW: It was a policy decision to support Fonseka at that election. The newspaper had been taken to Court by Gotabaya Rajapaksa, former President had also been abusive to Lasantha, me and others in the staff. In addition to the Press being burnt, the corruption that was prevalent at the time and finally the murder that made us decide. But I did ask Gen Fonseka also whether he knew who killed Lasantha before making that decision.

CT: What did he say?

LW: The first occasion was when he had made the decision to retire and was expected to be the common candidate. It was a press conference at the Taj Hotel. A Rotary organised one. He was on stage and I was in the audience. I sent him a scrawled note asking “Who Killed Lasantha?”. When it was his turn to speak, I think he was the keynote speaker, he said it was “kudukarayas masquerading as politicians who did it and he had no time as all his energy went to the war”. The second was when he had decided to run as the common candidate and the UNP lawyers held a meeting at Galadari Hotel where three lawyers who had passed away were garlanded. There too I sent a note to the stage and his response was the same. The third occasion was when the newspaper did an interview with him at his Reid Avenue political office just days before the election. His answer this time directly to me was the same as before.

CT: Who was he speaking of?

LW: At that time I thought he meant Mervyn Silva.

CT: What do you think now?

LW: I think he has spoken clearly as you can hear on the Satana show.

CT: Why did you not take it up in Courts through your Lawyer if the former President accused Gen Fonseka and said it to you?

LW: I asked the former President directly when he said such as to why he as Head of Defence does not go to Mt Lavinia Court where Lasantha’s murder was being heard and say that.

CT: So?

LW: He mumbled something about evidence and the Army being demoralised. But I do recall after one such time when I spoke at Lasantha’s grave site and the BBC was present covering it, they asked Gen Fonseka what he had to say. There too I said that former President told me that it was Fonseka who killed Lasantha which prompted them to ask Gen Fonseka for a response. At the time he told the BBC in response it was Gotabaya who was responsible but also found fault with me too. Obviously he was out of step then too and did not understand what I was saying. Come on, this was the President of the country saying his former Army Commander killed Lasantha !! What did he expect me to do? I took it as a responsible statement and Gen Fonseka should have addressed the former President and not me.

CT: Do you know what he said to the CID in his statement? Would he have said what he said at the Satana interview?

LW: I don’t know. I sure wish he has said what he knew to the CID. I also hope the CID follows up and even question all those who said they knew who killed Lasantha.

CT: So, did you say it was Gen Fonseka who was responsible? Who do you think was responsible?

LW: I have never said that. I do not know why he ( Field Marshall) thinks so. Perhaps he thought I believed what the former President said. Why should I believe him if he wasn’t prepared to say it to the CID or Court? Nevertheless I had to say that he did tell me such a story. I do hope some good will come out of this which will lead to unravelling the case into my brothers murder.

      Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka

      RE: CID Questions Fonseka Over Lasantha’s Murder Finally; Lasantha’s Brother Dismisses Allegations

      1. “He went on to suggest that it was Gotabaya Rajapaksa who would have been behind the murder of Lasantha, as the journalist was about to reveal more into the corruption involved with the MiG aircraft purchase. “

      Lasantha was not alone here , Iqbal Athas had to flee for disclosing this corrupt deal. Gotabaya Rajapaksa pocketed US $ 30 million.

      2. “the security of Colombo was in the hands of Gotabaya Rajapaksa who used Gen. Hendawitharane for this purpose. Special emphasis was laid on the White Van Abduction culture in Colombo.”

      In addition they stole by abduction, and if not paid ransom, killed.

      3. “Field Marshal Fonseka went on to say that late Lasantha’s brother Lal Wickrematunge was paid money by the Rajapaksa’s to lay the blame for the murder of his brother on him (Field Marshall Fonseka).”

      Of course Mahinda Rajapaksa surely did that. He also jailed you. Both Mahinda and Gotabaya were the Medamulana Mafia.

      Now Mahinda Rajapaksa, Gotabaya Rajapaksa and cronies have bribed Sirisena, from the stolen billions, who was elected by 6.2 million voters, and turned into a Turncoat, Traitor, Gona, Mala-Perethaya, and Sevelaya. What a tragedy.

      Why Sumane, Are you worried that your Murderous God Father family connections will be exposed now.

      They say, you cannot hide a pumpkin under a plate of rice, it would come out, just like the ocean would push the dead body out.

      All the treacherous and murderous acts of your beloved MARA family will come out and will be proved. It is not a question of if, but when.

      It is like a festated wound. A accused B. B says no, A confirms to have not done so. Then most abusive former president keeps on saying that it was former AC was the person to have murdered LW. And his brother says, nothing he may have known about the facts of the murder but still goes on saying former President s rule was highly abusive.
      And in between all the media to that time brought head lines too confirm that the murder should have been an act of Rajaakshes.
      Those who knows it really, at the time, war was at its all heights, I dont think Army commander could ever mediate in such issues to have occured in Colombo than in Northern hills where the fights against the terror was highly dangerous. All in all, we are clear Rajaakshes make every effort to stick the brutal murder on former AC- now they could even go further and say- yes, these were the reasons them to put AC for 36 months in Jail.
      And it was reported a former Army intelligence Soldier to have strangulated himself in Kegalle not even 6 months ago – had left even a hand written note about the innocience of an Army intelligence officer who was taken to custody (remand) on the incident. Prior to the death found in his house of the said person – just few days before the incident the intelligence officer had gone to Army head quarters.
      May be this coudl give more valuable contents… regarding the brutal murder of LW. And it was speculated, that Gotabaya had planned the dead soldier to meet with Army for a deal. What came out in that regard should be focused closely, can bring cleaing the suspcisions further.

      Why cant press YET hold a broader discussion with all prevaricating former President yet today on the murder.

      As we perfectly know former Prez has no such tight schedules to deny the discussion:

      Sirasa or other senders have yet forgotten or arbitorily put off to do so why ?

      Even alleged Gotabaya for this and other high profiel murders and missing cases have not been interviewed yet directly why ?

      Are they not SRILANKEN CITIZENS ?

      Why the PRESS MEN seem to be away from the essential interviews as such ?

        How could the Police make investigations around MR and GR, when the
        Minister of Justice has bluntly stated in Parliament that he will not allow
        the arrest of Gota under any circumstances?
        H.E. is taking cover under the pretext that a legal process is proceeding,
        in the holy G.G. stride! In fact it is MS/RW tactic to keep MR/GR/ex-1st

        Samuel Jayaweera:
        You are dead right. Why can’t the so-called “free media” question the ex-President about all of this instead of beating around every bush they come across? This article in CT is the ONLY one I have seen that deals comprehensively with this dastardly act.

        Just as the current government seems determined NOT to bring the murderous thieves who ruled us for so long to justice, the media seems complicit in that enterprise.

        So much for a media that is now free!!

          I raise this VERY same question from that day on.

          No body added anything to this yet. We perfectly know that Rajakashe are not tight with their daily agendas today. They can take part in discussion rounds if Journos would do the job properly. In such discussions, the former can and will be able to clear so many issues for which he and his family have been alleged. Besides, he should have the responsiblity to clear the anxities of the people. Most of all the huge sums alleged to have been deponsited in National Bank of Dubai ( over 1.5 billions of US dollars).

          Thanks for your comments. I really appreciate.

          I think lanken so called journos are yet miles away from approaching Mahinda Rajaakhse, Gotabaya Rajaakshe and even Namal Baby Rajakashe.

          That alone proves the level of lanken media function – even after 08th Jan 2015.

            Lasantha’s murder is not a mystery ! if the authority allows CID to investigate the brutal murder without any hindrance , CID could come up with the real answers in no time.

            It’s noteworthy that Mahinda , Gotabaya , FM Sarath F , Lal W , Wijedasa R ,Gen Duminda Kappeiwalana et al are linked together with this high profile murder in one way or another . Lal and Sonali’s bizarre behaviour also raises more questions than answers , had Lal been compensated handsomely for his brother’s murder ? Selling Sunday Leader to a known Rajapakse lackey itself is very suspicious though , Lal had been a mere spectator than a grieving brother ! where is Sonali today ? i remember they kept telling that , justice will never be served for Lsanthaa as long as Mahinda at the helm , if that is the case , why are they still mum ? it’s a known fact that Wijedasa R is protecting Rajapaksa family from the beginning , yet Ranil and MY3 never bother to utter a single word against the Dealdasa. are MY3 and Ranil indirectly protecting Rajapakse family ? what role Mervin had played on Lasantha’s murder ? then who killed the ex Army intelligence officer in kegalle recently ?

              I cant really understand why Lal W behaved not emotional. Is it his nature ? Or made nature ?If I would have been Lasantha s brother, I woudl have worked diehard to corner the men – that he think are the real murderes of his brother s murder.

                Lasantha W himself had announced that if he were to be killed , it would be none other than Gotabaya , question is , does the Yahapalna regime want to capture the real culprit ? As the way things are being done here, nothing concrete going to come up with ;moreover , they just drag the case forever , until public loses the interest of the case.

              Srilal,
              it was confirmed that FORMER President to have accused SF not just once but 3 occastions that him to be the killer of the incident. And in the same manner very same president sheded crocodile tears at the time, DUminda SIlva brutally murdered Bharatha. And in the same time, at the time, CID men with police was about to arrest, that Lanza the drug kin pin of Negombo was hugged by airlifiting to the place in the day itself. All in all, the bad card is even getting filled of the high criminal actitivities being carried out by the direct mediation of former PRESIDENT.
              I have the feeling the current leaders are well aware of the facts that LW was killed by Rajaakshes for sure, and just going through the hegemonic thoughts will surely bury the issues creating all unrests in the country, that is why the current duo are not wholehearted yet about the murder investigations. Else, if for example, in a european soil, that would have been given the first priority – since the torments of all murder victimized families are reechoed in the country- even with a higher magnitude the size of 2004-tsunmi waves broke the earth palata behind the srilanka creating and a higher disaster. Dont you think so my friend ?

                Apparently Mafia king had uttered ” Lanza is not distributing drugs within SL ;thus, let me intervene to free him ” that’s how the Lanza drama ended. As to motives of our current duo actions , we couldn’t care less , what we wanted was ” Justice ” which seems to be a distant reality. MY3 has his own agendas whereas Ranil has his own , we the masses are caught in the middle .

Pre-election, you guys did talk hundred + things but in vain. You guys alleged a deal between a businessman based in Dubai and Rajapakshes. But now, that very Dubai man is coming here to start a tyre business, in a controversial manner, though with the blessing of yahapalanaya.

      Hey guys, if you attentively read the conversation above and the articles posted on the brutal murder in the aftermath.

      a) Lal W has been telling it OPENLY as he can – ” Rajapakshes hated us the Wickramtunga family “

      b) This brutal murder occured with the approval of the Rajapakshe family

      c) Lal W has denied to have accused SF putting the blame on him.

      d) Much of the media thoughts are more to Rajakashes than anyone else in terms of Lasantha s murder –

      e) Why you guys attack anyone else ?

      f) And there are also other murders that should have been occured with the mediation of Rajaakshes – Thadjudeen murder..?

      I have no doubt, SF will succeed even more in the future WHILE all revealing prima facie evidence will NOT allow those Rajapakses to stay away acting the film further.

        Whoever whatever being said and done, SF has sacrificed his life for lanken Army and even was about to die not once several times. And for revenge acts he had been prisoned for 3 years. Today all the other men have been treaeted with impunity.. not in the same manner SF was treated. Considering all these, I feel, He will win this journey, making him super hero for all what he has done to this nation.

        He is my personal hero…… All others card board heros should be jailed.. if not today later. I have been studying all the stuff though being out of the country.

He the Mervin had himself added it to the media that the Rajaapkashe should be the ones to have killed Sunday leader Editor- not once several times the former minister of MR cabinet had repated this.

      Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday said that the people of this country knew very well who was behind the killing of former “Sunday Leader” editor Lasantha Wickramatunge and if the CID questioned him about the killing he would reveal the identity of the killer.

      When “The Island” queried the former President regarding the statement made by Minister Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka to the media at Hunupitiya, Wattala on the killing of former “Sunday Leader” editor, the former President said “Certain elements simply make comments without considering the consequences or its seriousness.”

      Rajapaksa said the masses were keeping a watchful eye on what’s going on in the country and they were disgusted of the government.

      Fonseka had told the media at a earlier press conference that the CID should interrogate the former President and his brother former Defence Secretary Gotaabhaya Rajapaksa on the Wickramatunge killing.

    The Sunday Leader was sinking having been targeted by the Rajapakshes. During the three years after Lasantha was killed. Gotabaya’s law suite dealt a devastating final blow to the paper. Then Asanga Seneviratne buys the paper. Every one knows that the money used to buy the Sunday leader was a loan from the Rajapakshes. Lal was indeed bribed after being tortured into submission by the Rajapakshes who hated the Sunday Leader with a vengenance. Therefore the poor fellow keeps repeating like a parrot at every occasion he gets what Mahinda Rajapakshe told him. It looks very convincing that this was intended as a smear on S.F. But the most obvious question is why Percy has never been questioned on his utterances. The current lot are shielding him and his brother. One is getting drunk on power like all village folk do when they end up in the presidency while the other one has no spine and hides behind various excuses.

      Lal is lying thorugh the teeth about the Sunday Leader sale. That is not what appeared on the media when it was being sold. I think first they might wanted to just grab it but then partially paid for it, it seems. Janze ran away or otherwise somebody can ask her what was the story and how it was bought.

      I think Lal is stronger than Kathirgamar Family, Justice Sriskandarajah Family. Vijayakala takes some courage, but…. Raviraj Shashikala is fully dependent on TNA and NGOs.

      Lal did very good job. Ponnar told half truth to Janze of what happened but changed the word. If he had not changed that word, I would not be thinking in that way. But he changed his word.

      Nobody is safe. They are negotiating with Athul Hesap, the American Ambassador to come back to power. Lal want to live as long as he can.

      CID is with GOSL.

      For another 100 years, RTI is in conceptualisation, pregnancy, hospitalisation……but no delivery… Anyway for what? no use?

    Murder of Lasantha is yet another high profile murder committed during the previous regime. As pre revelations of the brother Lal then Head of State accuses his own commander of the Army for a crime and does nothing to apprehend the culprit. This is quite different to the US Army where General Patton was relieved of his command for merely slapping a soldier.

    To me, every one in power knew the story. But they did nothing because it would upset the apple cart.

      If I had been one of the victimized Thadjudeen family, I really dont know how I could bear the injustice made to them. Yet not getting the least justice in terms of the proper investigations.

      Lasantha is also the same – those victimzed families have been going through like torments of tantulus by today. THey have been made promises with treating them due justice. But over 700 days passed, nothing seem to have taken hugely.. against the criminals. Why ?

    All five Pandavas were too happy to sleep with Draupadi o thier hey day. She died of five men weight. Now these Pandavas claiming they never even saw Draupadi.

    “Kollai Addippoon Vallalai Paulee
    Koovilai iddippoon saamiyai paulee “

    (The burglar is crowned as the Philanthropist, the one demolish temple for treasures hunt is elevated as sage in this Sinhala Buddhist society.)

    It is the sin of English Language there are things like PhD and Field Marshal title there.

    “Kaagnchu Pauna pUmiyellam varraatha nathiyai paarththu aaruthal adaiyum, antha nathiyE kaagnsu paunaal….”

    The land dried without rain cherishes see the flowing river. The River gone derived. What can they do?

    It is UNHRC, the highest graceful organization of the world, forced the OISL to take back the names of the war criminals it listed and protected the criminals. If the UNHRC had done its duty, by now, the back and forth ping pong would have come to an end.

    Ask Funny Fonny what they did to the journalist whose initials are KN. He got that done. Those hit squads were under Fonseka’s control. KN exposed his egotistical effort to award himself medals he was not entitled to have because of the black marks in his personnel file. What did they do to him? He had to flee SL and is traumatized. They were debauched sadistic men of the type Ranil used at Batalanda.

    Gota and he probably worked in cahoots. But Ranil Maama needs to have Fonny because Ranil maam is so afraid of the army and sees conspiracies everywhere. This was not a simple job. Fonny has a temper and is very vengeful. Everyone in the Army knew that. Ask the army cook whose jaw was broken and was secretly send to the Navy hospital. Ask those who were stupid not to make the biththaara hopper hot when he sat down to dinner.

    Fonseka abused the military with millions of rupees of Satellite phone calls to USA; that was exposed by Lasantha. Lasantha ridiculed is first daughter’s first marriage done in grand style at Army expense. Lasantha and Nation newspaper exposed his medal thing.

    UNP wants to blame Gota for political reasons but that is not going to fly anymore. MR was afraid of SF because SF was needed to win the war and Gota and SF were in cahoots. Fonseka has a temper and rage and people were afraid even though he was the most brilliant general Sri Lanka ever had. He helped wipe out the Tiger curse and destroyed them militarily. That is all that matters.

      Sergent Shultz,

      My mates tell me it is not really nice to down grade Fonny to such an extreme low rank, considering that he single handedly wiped out the Tamil Terrorists.

      My Elders tell me even the current Yahapalana PM Batalanda Ranil’s great uncle the creator of our Dharmishta Constitution, which the nephew is trying to F*** Up, couldn’t do it even at its infancy.

      Then the first ever Dalit Leader and the President of the UNP ( and of course the last, according to the way things are panning out) mollycoddled the Tamil Terrorists.

      They paid the compliment in return by blasting the Dalit Prez using a Bicycle bomb in front of Bloemendhal Road, which is now the most important and the most powerful Yahapalana UNP Turf .

      Now that you also have given the Field Marshall Rtd of course, a guernsey , I like to call the great man Captain Mannerwaring , here on.

      BTW , do you know anything about those old Media Reports that the FM Rtd was keen on giving personal training to well endowed Sinhala Buddhihst chicks who joined the Army to save our Nation.

      When the traditional supply source for brave Officer grades which is the Elite Sector in Colombo were dried up like prunes, because they were scared shitless of Mr Pirahaparan. .

      Will the Yahapalana UNP Government build a Statute of their ex Leader, the Dalit from Keselwatta?.

      When Batalalnada Ranil and his buddy Samre complete the reconciliation and the the TNA is in total control of the Homeland in the North with a statute of their Military Wing leader in place.

        Sumane:

        The cow is tied up. Batalanda Butcher has raised his sword. But he still climbing he is a Buddhist Vegetarian. People who are stretching their bowl to him don’t believe him; want the flesh to satisfy their hunger. But a sheep from his farm has gone other way not returning to herd. Because of its color, he failed to note it was going the other while last night returning home.

        Sonia is no there; Old King not on seat. Siva Shankar Menon’s pocket is empty. So, India is no longer with Old Royals nor against Ponnar.

        The Old Royals met American Ambassador Atul Keshap for approval, as Chinese are mad at King after HangBandTota drama of “Protesters-Opposors to protest” were staged.

        “China-India-America” is not with the Old King.

        The bravest, who defeated LTTE is scared to form a party. GL got that courage. World is prepared to work with GL. New King fired him from SLFP Party and approved his leadership of the new party. Old King cannot take firing from SLFP nor can lead the Lotus.

        GLP is going to take the Vella Sampanthan’s title and his Colombo home soon.

        GL ate Appa from the hand of the Old King. Now he is elevated to be the next EP. Even Vijithamuni has fixed the date for that before he run away.

        Can you tell me if Old King and Old Princes names are in list of the EP GL.P’s ministers list or no?

    Why is the Government dragging its feet to grill Gota in connection with Lasantha’s murder even though Field Marshall SF was questioned for five hours.Is there a deal between GR and our Hon.President as in the other cases where our BRAVE soldiers are involved?

    yes what a drama, what a comedy. do Pujitha and gang together with their sirs think that they can regain lost prestige and public trust with such a comedy. yes joint opposition speculating on common candidate and SLFP speculating put forarding incumbent president for next event in twenty twenty.Is anything behind this drama.Final stage can be anticipated with SF own words. Gota was in charged of public security of western province together with general hendavitharana. yes it is correct though SF was army commander he as not responsible for day to day security aspects of the country.he was engaged in brutal war with terrorists.then whom our CID focusing on. non other than GOTA. if SF as not responsible for day to day public security situation at that time why was he questioned. CID must be having previous records of their on intelligence services.then why did they not question then IGP. if CID wanted to have general idea of public security situation at that time.

    GOTA may be next occupant of jail cell occupied by Wimal in next round.General hendavitharana may be another victim. it seems. Is SF a gony billa actor in this drama like late eighties events. near future will tell us the truth I hope.

    Heroes can be jailed but heroism can not be wiped out.

    If Mahinda Rajapaksa was definite that FM Fonseka killed Lasantha, why did he arrest him? When BBC correspondent interviewed Gotabhaya Rajapaksa regarding the murder of Lasantha he flew into a rage. He told the BBC correspondent that Lasantha had many enemies as he was criticising all of them. During MR’s dispensation there were 24 personnel from the media were murdered. None of them ended in prosecution and conviction. The same with white van abductions and ransom killing. It was jungle law that prevailed during the dark era.

      Knowing the killer and arresting the killer are two diffrent things. Yahapalanaya knows about lot of killers and looters. But, arrested only one or two for office misconduct with a office vehicle.

      Yahapalanaya let go Raviraj killers knowing they are the killers.

      If Yahapalanaya is not arresting by the end of its terms either the Ponner or Old King, by that conduct none of them are held honored.

    Result of Lasantha exhumation autopsy gone under the carpet?
    Field marshal Fonseka would know who ordered the military to purchase animal humane killers like the one put to Lasantha’s head?

    So Fonseka had no problem with Lasantha?

    But if you read April 13- 2008 Sunday Leader it talks about a Benz car for him. It even makes fun of Fonseka’s war winning claims.

    After the expose Mahinda cancelled the Benz car!
