The Prison is secure for Sarath Fonseka. Minister Dew Gunasekera made this statement in Parliament responding to a query raised by the Opposition leader.
The Minister said that all necessary security measures are in place within the Prison. He has issued all necessary instructions in this respect. The DIG was particularly summoned to accord security to Sarath Fonseka while he was brought to Courts. He pointed out that all prisoners are being treated alike. However, if the Doctor says that special facilities should be afforded, there are provisions in the Prisons Ordinance to do so. The Minister recalled that he too served a Prison sentence when Ranil Wickramasinghe was in office. No one was afforded to visit him. He has such experience. But, the Minister said they were adhering to the proper policies.
