SF says troops have nothing to worry if not committed a crime

Former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka says soldiers involved in the war against the LTTE have nothing to worry if they have not committed a crime.

He told reporters that establishing an Office of Missing Persons is not just for the people in the North and East but will also be open to those in the South.

The joint opposition alleged that the Office of Missing Persons will be used to take action against troops who fought the war.

Fonseka said that if any soldier believes in his heart he has done no wrong then he has nothing to be worried about.

He says opposition politicians are today making statements on soldiers just for their political gain. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. “Former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka says soldiers involved in the war against the LTTE have nothing to worry if they have not committed a crime.”

    SF is right. If you did nothing wrong and as you preached to the world if it was a humanitarian operation what are you afraid of.

    The loser of a dead-beat professor is screaming from roof tops that the laws passed will be applied retroactively and war hero’s will be hauled be the real courts and not the kangaroo ones in SL.

    Creating a law that intentionally has a blind eye on the past amounts to conceding that war crimes were committed. Specifically saying the military men will be hauled is implying that you know who committed those war crimes. Knowing all this should you still call them “War Hero’s”?

  2. People who had been brainwashed by America should not comment on Sri Lankan army. If America wanted to have their henchman to run Sri Lanka, then they should chose a man with a brain; not a donkey.

    • This so called donkey had the opportunity to come clean but folded like a coward and as thanks got thrown in prison like a common criminal without any privileges, even to get proper medicine the wife had to cry in courts.

      ““The Chief of Defence Staff General Sarath Fonseka left the United States this morning to return to Colombo. He was not subjected to any questioning prior to his departure by the United States Department of Homeland Security or any other agency of the US Government,’’ the Lankan foreign ministry said in statement issued here on Wednesday evening. Fonseka was expected to reach Colombo on Thursday.

      It could be recalled that in October-end, Fonseka, in the US on a partly private visit, received a letter from the DHS requesting that he present himself for an interview on November 4 in Okhlahama City. Subsequently, there was also a telephone call from an official of the Department of Homeland Security to the General. US officials, it was learnt, was seeking to make Fonseka source of information against defence secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa for his alleged human rights violations in the last phase of the war against the LTTE. The Tamil Tigers were militarily defeated in May this year.”

      But in the end the interview did not take place.
