Sinhala racist MP Udaya Gammanpila stated that Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka has put the lives of over 300,000 Sinhala soldiers in danger by stating that he will provide evidence against Military personnel who committed war crimes against Tamils during the war. More than 40000 Tamil Civilians were killed in May 2009 alone by the Sri Lankan Sinhala soldiers. More than 1000 LTTE Leaders and their family members were killed after they surrendered with White Flag. The surrender was negotiated by the UN officers.
Even 14 year old child of LTTE Leader was killed after he had surrendered with White Flag as per UN officials instruction.
Speaking to the Media at a press briefing today, MP Gammanpila stated that the only way to save the lives of the soldiers is to diagnose the Field Marshal as a mental patient. He made this remark in response to Field Marshal Fonseka stating that former Army Commander Jagath Jayasuriya committed war-crimes during his tenure as Army Chief.
He further went on to state that Sarath Fonseka has appealed to Tamil Separatists who were lying in wait for an opportunity to cause disarray within the public after a hiatus of 8 years. MP Gammanpila stated that parties intending on punishing innocent soldiers need no more evidence than the testimony of the war-time Army Chief.
Mahinda group is asking PM to frame Field Marshal sarath Fonseka as a mental patient so that his testimony or evidence provided by him will not have wait in the courts. What will PM Ranil do is some thing to see.
