Govt. trying to deny 200,000 members of the forces their FR to discuss politics

Mar 26, 2010 1:27:09 PM - thecolombotimes.com


Wijedasa Rajapske , PC and UNP candidate for Colombo District addressing the media at the UNP media unit today (26) said , the indictment  filed by the Govt. against Gen. Fonseka that he discussed politics while he was in service as an Army Commander is creating a bad  precedent , and augurs ill for the 200, 000 members of the Forces . Like how it has distorted the laws to prosecute Fonseka on this accusation , it can even twist the fundamental right of any officer of the Forces and claim that he has acted in breach of the employment conditions , even  if he discusses politics with his wife in the private bedroom.
