Earlier last month, responding to a news story under the headline “U.S. to make representations if 25,000 sign” in the Daily Mirror on December 13, The U.S. Embassy in Colombo said; The U.S. Government has given no assurance that we will act on the on-line petition regarding Sarath Fonseka in any manner.  The White House web site includes a place for people to express their opinions and advocate for action with an on-line petition initiative entitled “We the People ”  Petitions which receive a certain number of on-line signatures will be reviewed by a U.S. official, who will respond to the petition’s sponsor.   The existence of a petition on the site is neither an endorsement of the position advocated, nor a guarantee that the U.S. Administration will take action.”

        Current Sri Lankan Ambassador does not know how to sign. He places his “paw” print on documents! Are you related to him because spelling does not seem to be your forte either!

        Yes, I listened to a video very recently in which he explains about the FIRST female prime minister. Sadly enough the guy could not even convince it to the audience. How can he then be a good ambassador if he does not have adequate credentials to be in that position? Why cant lanken communities in the US protest against that ? Lankens as a nation with highly qualified professionals had never been in the history NOT BEING able to represent the country in this manner.

      Are you so dumb? If this was done to achieve the 25,000 signatures, they( the people who posted them) could have used fictitious names. This would have been done by the bootlickers to create a credibility snag.

    What credibility are you talking about? Presidential Election results, Namal Baby’s Law Collage 99% Marks and AL results?

    The Defence .lk has done their part well. Thanks Gota for trying to discredit the Petition. Gota tried all he could to block access to this. I had a hard time logging into and signing.

    BTW, How many Mahinda Rajapaksa are there?….How Many Sarath Fonseka’s are there in Sri Lanka?

    Why can’t you guys talk about the more pressing issues such as how they bungled the AL results, How Mahinda Lokka entered the Law College without AL results, What is happening with Duminda Silva triple murder case.. When will he be arrested?….Same goes to the Tangalle Murderers?…Will they get off scot free?

    Colombo Telegraph why you guys dwell ion these minor matters? Publishing these kinds of garbage questions your credibility.

    They called the guy who invented the first name Mahinda, an idiot. They called the other guy who invented the other 4 Mahinda names — a genius.

      Why not they search for the creditability of other issues such as

      – Al results innacuracies
      – State sponsored murders – UK citizen on the 24th Dec
      – Sate sponsored killing of Baratha
      – and numbers of white van abductions continued by Mervin,Gotta and the other underworld thugs

    This goes to show how stupid and dualistic Sri Lankans are. When the West points to HR violations they claim it is infringement on their sovereignty, but when they have nowhere to run for help, they ling on to something set up for implementation of democracy in another country and try to seek justice from their system!

    When the idiots in Sri Lanka thought MR won the war and hence voted for him in numbers they did not expect such an unfortunate chaotic pathetic and lawless situation would ever arise in Sri Lanka. Now they are begging to all corners of the world to redeem themselves from the Sinhalese Prabakaran in Rajapaksha! What an irony of fate!

    US is unable to act on this petition because internationally there is no mandate for US to address an international issue based on a petition posted on a website meant purely for domestic purposes. What can really free Fonseka is the 10000-signature petition initiated by Ranil to be presented to UN HR body which is the internationally accepted and established body to address such problems.

    However it totally rests on Fonseka to decide on his future political life and with whom he is going to join politically. So long as Fonseka remains indecisive or drifts towards Karu-Sajith partisan politics the main UNP political body and its vote base would not be interested in promoting the petition to release SF who has done several critical mistakes during his short political career and we hope at least now he would arrive at a wise decision without submitting to the conspirators in disguise loitering around him.

    We have discovered all his family members and close friends have been deceived and brain-washed by conspirators and are no longer in a position to comprehend who is the foe and who is the fried! It is with the support of Ranil alone he would redeem himself, anything else a hopeless trap and a blunder!

    US G has assured Tamils For Justice that there will not be any interference with a Sri lanka felon. US has a legal obligation to investigate HR violations and possible War Crimes perpetrated by the former Army commander Sarath Fonseka. Anyway, Fonseka being a permanent US resident is subject to the jurisdiction of US Courts and Grand Jury investigations. Tamils For Justice was founded and Attorney Bruce Fein was hired in 2007 for this specific purpose. Since then tens of Thousands of Tamil civilians have been murdered, as confirmed by the UN report. Silva report cannot “WHITE WASH” THE MURDERS AND RAPES of civilians.. So beaware, including Prof. Thishantha Nannayakara who has been one of the leaders in collecting the “Bogus Signatures” from the UK.

      Where did I promote bogus signing? Any evidence? Is foul mouthing without facts the pathetic level to which these so called “justice” seekers have fallen down to?

      Any signatory could use any name in the petition because the online form only required to have a valid email address. Those who planned to throw mud at the peaceful campiagn could very well mention other people’s names. We who promoted this petition condemn such cheap behavior, and apologize those reputed people whose names were abused by these groups whose origins can be guessed based on the way they try to vent out their frustration here. We did not have to promote bogus signatures nor try to bribe the state department (see US attorney’s office report: http://www.justice.gov/usao/nye/pr/2006/2006Aug21.html ) because enough numbers of genuinely concerned people volunteered to sign from across the Globe.

      Obviously, some groups know that they can not continue to use peaceful people to do their seperatist politics if Sarath Fonseka is released. We do understand the pain.

    I think it is time that General Fonseka get release and have rest of his life with his family away from this madness of power. Though I am very much against this imprisonment, I am no longer expecting and hoping that he the General becoming President as he does not have enough trust worthy people to run the country.

    Regardless of our likeness, the current government is doing something as a team. One is covering for other regardless, it is good or bad. Getting them to do well should come from the people via various methods such as sathyagraha. Someone might said that how could you do such thing, when thugs of government henchmen are there to beat up the people. Remember, an eye to an eye. Even ruthless leaders in the history came down against the powers of people.
    I think the day that Bharatha died, is the first day of end of this ruthless government if they are. Remember, an outsider does not have the knowledge of an insider and vise a versa.
    The other important factor is there is no opposition that is strong to form a government. The UNP is in disarray and they need to come out of the hole that they were fallen. They must get rid of those officials are now in reign and put new fresh faces. Premadasa could make a good president if he comes with Dayasiri as his deputy. Ranil, if he ever cares for the country, must understand that he is not the only one who can do this task. If not, wait for 50 years of Rajapaksha rule. The way things are going, they could do well to the country if they lessen the corruption and get rid of it once and for all. Ha, Ha,
    The other thing is bring forward a leader who is in the caliber of great Dudley Senanayake. Sorry, I could not find any SLFP leader in that caliber.

    President, Rajapaksha, please release General Fonseka because you need to sleep well to become a great leader if you are wishing for that goal.
    May Triple Gems Bless my country.

    SF lost presidential election big margin because blabbering of white flag story. He or his family still didn’t understand that, when they go against the country they lose more. If he want to be a successful politician he shouln’t have done this because Sri Lankan people wouldn’t approve this except who signed the petition. They should have discuss this matter with President and get him released. See what’s happening to UNP and JVP they don’t stand up for the country when they should, and lose almost every election, not because of their leader’s fault.

    Dear Mr. President Rajapaksha, please release Fonseka considering his valuable service done for the country before come to politics. He deserve better life at his age, and you will win the people’s heart more.

      Well said. This is the fundermental truth FOOLS including Fonseka do not understand. They are too damn short sighted and selfish to realise their mistakes or the damage they did. Nor do they care either. Oh well.

      Definitely it was the work of GOTA fans to discredit this petition. Even if you make those invalid, still there are well over 25,000 and over 7 million voters (over 70%) would sign given them an opportunity to do so. Sarath Fonseka’s supporters wouldn’t have done it as it would definitely discredit and they would have used their E-Mail addresses to vote in favour of the petition. You may be one of those who gave a bogus name or names to discredit this.

      So, you admit that it was Mahinda who gave the verdict and punishment. Was he the presiding judge?

        You should have zero IQ not to get the point.

        According to Current regime they amended the laws so that the president can appoint a judge. So what is the difference – no need him to preside over in the court rooms.

      what f…ing treason you are talking about. Telling that he heard something like that is not a treason. Investigating and clear our name is the proper thing. Did anyone given him any chance to do that? As the commander of army, he has the right to do that. Without his battle plan. there is no victory. remember, there were other Generals with more credibility could not do that task. so, give man some credit for getting rid of the ruthless organization and it’s leaders via his army. Of course we all agree that From President MR to the lowest level foot soldier contribute to the defeat of LTTE.
      Why the hell then you and your so called government does not do anything to stop the killing of those who open their mouth. Stop eating trash and talking trash. This is why our country going down.

    It is quite hillarious and amusing. The supporters of Fonseka thinking of online petitions and begging their white masters!! Hahaha what a stupid bunch of jokers. Do they seriously thinking that a release be possible when even the West is unable to push Sri Lanka and has side tracking slowly, amidst China’s growing influence and their own mess up with Libya and Pakistan’d human rights violations. The massive economic slide experinced by these bankrupt nations had weakened their position and are even afraid of confronting Iran. The people of Sri Lanka has endorsed the present regime with solid majorities, over and over and its increasing! And this is a fact, much to the agony and frustrations of its detractors. So do accept the reality. The majority Sri Lankans (Not necessarily the Colombians and the worshipers of the Suddas and tigers) are quite happy with the rapid development and relative prosperity experinced by the nation.

      I agree with you LLOKAYA. Is that your real name, by the way???

      I think Anoma is happy to keep Fonseka in Jail and she does not want him to be around giving orders to her. Now, I am not making this up, she looks more relax and confident when she talks to media, so I guess she wants to become a leader of a political party while her husband is on vacation.

    Well said “Lokaya”. Obama’s plate is full with his own worries. If at all he intervenes, what right he has to do that? Are we a colony of US?I don’t think so.

    Having said that President Rajapakse should release this joker and let him die a political natural death similar to other opposition ‘leaders’. Keeping him in will make him a unwanted political hero. (His war heroics are unquestionable however.) I salute him for supporting the govt’s drive to eradicate terrorism.

    Like some one said, this is defineately a work by Govt supporters. SF supporters will never do it. White house people would understand it. Even dictators like Sadam Husain or Gadafi had supporters. Why our Govt doesn’t have boot lickers.

    Signature numbers have exceeded by about 600. You can remove Rajapaksa Family and any other signatures supposed to be bogus, and then still you have required number of signatures for white house to proceed.

    Our justice system is in trouble. Some Judges who are taking important decisions are supporters of the Government. They are not independent. If the justice cannot be expected from our system, not only SF, whole country will seek international intervention.

    Don’t you have the rights to find out who had sign this pettition by giving bogus name as this shows? But to my knowlege there could be more people with the same name and features in our country. The best thing you can do to find out through the e-mail addresses are they really signateries with their real name or a part. This is what I could suggest rather than given opportunity to each and everyone to thrash un-necesaraly.
