Fonseka denies telling lies, committing treason

Jun 8, 2010 8:00:00 PM - aussieindolanka.com
Imprisoned former Sri Lankan armed forces chief General (retired) Sarath Fonseka has denied being a liar or having committed treason. The BBC said that he was responding to government allegations of him committing war crimes during fighting against the Tamil Tiger rebels.   Fonseka spoke to the BBC Sinhala service via telephone while attending parliament, which he can do since being elected as an MP two months ago. "How can it be?" he asked.   "If I cover up, if I hush up things, if I don’’t tell the truth fully I will become a traitor. If I know anything about war crimes my duty is to expose. That is what we are supposed to do as a responsible citizen, as a responsible ex-army officer, or as a responsible MP - we are not supposed to cover up anything," he added.   www.indianexpress.com/news/fonseka-denies-telling-lies-committing-treason/631496/
