We will be appealing to the courts in the legal manner.
We do not plan to appeal for a pardon without knowing exactly what we are supposed to appeal for.
If the President wants my father to apologise, we first need to know what we are supposed to apologise for since we do not see a reason for that.
My father is not like other people who will apologise just to get his neck saved. He will always stand up for what is right.
The international campaign for his release is going well. Expatriates in countries abroad have become really disheartened with what the government is doing to my father.
I’ve gotten calls from people who actually voted for Mahinda Rajapaksa saying it was the biggest mistake they did. The people are planning many rallies. You will get to hear of them in the future. So far, there have been rallies in Italy, France, Japan, Australia etc.
Several different organisations and government officials have contacted us and have voiced their concern. I believe that they will take measures in their own way to help us.
People know what is going on. They are not children and they are not stupid. They understand what’s happening. Justice will be served in the right manner one of these days.
