I Can’t Vote, I Can’t Contest – Fonseka

By Colombo Telegraph –

Fonseka

“Unless they have remitted the prison sentence which I have already completed, unless they do that, I can’t do politics. I can do politics , but I can’t vote or contest. We exactly don’t know what is in the document” Sarath fonseka told the BBC.

The former army chief said he wanted to be involved in politics to change what he called Sri Lanka’s “corrupt political culture” – even if he didn’t get to serve as president or be re-elected to parliament.

      Dilip, Let’s be honest, is government really scared of him? May be, but does it matter? Because the government has no serious threat from the guy. People like you have said this all those three years but only he suffered. He languished in jail for almost three years and because it was more than 2 years and the president didn’t pardon him for that sentence he has just completed, he will be like a cobra with his venom drained or fangs removed. Those who talk about international pressure knows nothing about it. Now the UNP is tabling a motion demanding restoration of his civic rights. But how credible is their demand, when the same UNP where Ranil, John Amaratunge, Joseph Michael were MPs suspended Sirimavo and her friends’ civic rights for 7 years? The people should leave Fonseka to enjoy his retirement after such a long career in Army. He knows no politics and now he is on a revenge mission. He once put himself in trouble by trying to bang his head against a brick wall. The problem is as they say, when a man gets his feet in lime he cannot easily get rid of it. And his friends and foes alike want to use him as a football.

    If Sarath Fonseka give a gurantee to INGOs and the members of the Civil Society that he will settle the ethnic issue within a certain period of he becoming the President of Sri Lanka, this can be sorted out very easily.

    The Tamils are very cautious about the statement that he made to a Canadian media during the war.

    If Fonseka is honest to his heart and given an open promise, his present problem can be sorted out within a very short period.

    Fonseka should not take anyone for a ride.

    Please in the North and East have already shown that they trust him than Mahindas’.

    Now the ball is in Fonseka’s court.

          My my, what you could do is, ask than trying to teach others. Because constitutions don’t arrest people. Anyway,just because you seem to struggle like a monkey, let me explain..certainly not your boss Prabhakaran’s constitution, but Sri Lanka’s constitution of 1978 made the provision for his arrest. Fonseka himself arrested and punished thousands of soldiers under this Army act. It is the same constitution that gave powers to the president to release him with or without conditions. Now read the rest somewhere else please, but in short..Fonseka is in a soup, he won’t be able to do anything for 7 years.haha in deed.

      Gamini,
      I am sure that Fonseka will teach a damn good lesson to your $$Kakka INGOs.Still you are banking on these INGOs to help you out with your pipe dream Elam,eh!I know your trick.With shortage of $$,you are trying to grab Fonseka’s name with promises of Ealam,so that you can fill your coffers once again!You must be crazy to bank on Fonseka.If by chance he becomes the president,it is you the defeated Tamil Tiger terrorists who will be his first victims.Haven’t you got any shame going behind a person who was mastermind in sending that terror thug Velu to the land of the dead?Keep on day dreaming,if it makes you happy.Why don’t you workout something with that old fart Karunanidi?

    Dear Sarath,

    Even you come out from the Prison, please be very very very careful as you know what happened to the Ja-ela MP, the former High commissioner of Australia (Sorry I can not remeber their names at the moment as I live out side the country) but if you restore the democracy and the prosperity for the wider citizens (not only for one family) I will come back.

    Apparently Tiran Alles has been somewhat a floppy negotiator.
    If the talks to relese SF (with MR) took so long how is that the
    man is now nothing but “a prisoner in the open” (Sarath Silva, CJ)
    Does India and the USA have to do everything for us.
