Six people including four monks from the People’s Movement demanding the Release of General Fonseka on Saturday commenced a fast unto death opposite the Fort Railway Station calling for the immediate release of the former Army Commander Retired General Sarath Fonseka currently under military custody.
The monks claimed the General who freed the country from terrorism should not be held behind bars. On the same day General Fonseka’s wife, Anoma visited the Dalada Maligawa in Kandy to make a vow to invoke blessings on General Fonseka, who is said to be suffering from ill health.
Meanwhile, General Fonseka’s younger daughter, Aparna Fonseka is scheduled to arrive in the country today to visit her ailing father. Sources close to the Fonseka family said Aparna had insisted on arriving in Sri Lanka due to the General’s deteriorating health condition. Sunday Leader
