SF Is A Political Prisoner Says UNP

Dec 19, 2010 8:10:20 PM - thesundayleader.lk

The UNP has said that while there were thousands of political prisoners in the country, former Army Commander and DNA Leader Sarath Fonseka was also such a political prisoner.

UNP Kandy District MP Lakshman Kiriella has said at a ceremony in Kandy today (19) that according to the United Nations there are 9,000 political prisoners in Sri Lanka.

He has observed that it was the fervent hope of everyone that these prisoners will be freed at least during the 2600th Sambuddha Jayanthi celebrations.

Kiriella has said that it was time for the country to move forward without being stuck in petty politics.
