Sports Minister Gamini Lokuge has said that if General Sarath Fonseka apologized to the President and requests a pardon from him, he would be released within 24 hours without a necessity for holding any false sathyagrahas and fasts organized by the JVP.
Mr. Lokuge said this at a UPFA election rally held at Delkanda in Nugegoda (2010/4/3) & telecasted on Sirasa News First on the 4th of April.
“The JVP says it would work to get Gen. Fonseka released. They say they have come forward to contest the election to get Gen. Fonseka released. No one needs to come forward to get Gen. Fonseka released. If he begs pardon from the President he would be released tomorrow morning,” said Minister Lokuge.
According to Minister Gamini Lokuge all charges the government has brought against Gen. Fonseka would be annulled when the General begs pardon from the President. The General would be freed of all conspiracy or fraud and corruption charges then. lankatruth & lankanewsweb
