Sarath Fonseka told to avoid making betrayals needed by forces against the country

- itnnews.lk

Minister Wimal Weerawansa has told Sarath Fonseka who had received a Presidential pardon to refrain from making betrayals needed by alien forces against the country.

Addressing a media conference held at the Jathika Nidahas Peramuna Office today the Minister referred to a statement made to the BBC by Fonseka that support should be extended for a war crimes investigation. Also in the Lankadeepa report it had been mentioned that tiger cadres had given arms to civilians and dispatched to the war front and it may be the reason that the troops were unable to differentiate between the tiger cadres and civilians.
The Minister said that during one instance he had rejected that thousands of civilians were killed. But it is a different version that had been now been given. This is a major betrayal. War crimes allegation had been made by the so-called international community. Fonseka is saying that he is prepared to face any investigation and that the Government should support an international probe on war crimes allegations. If the Former Army Commander was go give evidence at any international probe, what he would have to say is that he was not in Sri Lanka during that period and that he was in China and as such he cannot assume the responsibility of what happened during the final stages of the operation.
Therefore, the Minister emphasized that it is the Commander in Chief, the Defence Secretary and the hierarchy of the Armed forces that will have to answer. He queried as to why Fonseka was calling to support an international inquiry immediately after leaving prison and as to whose contract it was? The former Navy and Air Force Commanders were in the country. He asked whether they had made such statements. Minister Weerawansa queried as to why he was making this betrayal immediately after coming out from prison. Such statements will not affect the former Army Chief Sarath Fonseka but those who were serving in the Army at that time and who played key roles in the final stages of the war. As such, the Minister called on Fonseka to refrain from making any statements that would meet the needs of the international community against the country.
