Blaming that those who negotiated General Fonseka’s release from the jail with the President are responsible for the freedom without civic rights he received  Ranil Wickramasinghe said Tiran Alles being a member of parliament should tell the nation the circumstances under which such a sorry state came into being.

UNP and Opposition leader Wickramasinghe was addressing a press conference at the party headquarters Siri Kotha at Kotte.

Tiran Alles, a member of the Democratic National Alliance is the parliamentarian who negotiated the release of General Fonseka from the jail.

Quoting the 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. news broadcasts of the Sirasa Television on May 20 2012  Wickramasinghe said Tiran Alles  had said the President had agreed to almost everything they have requested. What has been granted is the cancellation of the jail term into the future. The question arises, Wickramasinghe, said why did not they request that past conviction also be declared null and void so that his civic rights could come intact.

The nation has been hoodwinked , since the people had been given the impression that General Fonseka would get his full freedom Wickramesinghe said.

Ranil Wickramesinghe said all proceedings against General Fonseka should be declared null and void . Since last December not only the state media but also the privately held media said that Fonseka is going to be freed. He said while the state media or the Dinamina publicly and obviously dancing to the tune of the government the Lankadeepa is dancing to the tune of the government wearing an iPod. He said there is no media freedom in the country today.

    Ranil is one who tries to live on cheap publicity by doing nothing and just by talking.

    There is no difference between Ranil and Wimal Modawansha.

  2. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    There is a difference:-

    Ranil always talks Stercus Tauri.

    Wimal to a great extent talks sense. It is unkind to call him Modawansa. Wimal has been very forthright in his convictions. He has shown how SF in a subtle move is trying to ensnare his adversaries into a trap. Nevertheless, the adversaries are sharp and intelligent.

    For one thing, Alles could never have concluded a successful deal with Rajapakses without Fonseka family knowing full details. For another thing, Fonseka lawyers couldn’t have been that much of fools for not to know that withdrawing appeal mean accepting the sentence passed. I say, Fonseka family knew exactly ‘what’s in’ and ‘what’s up’.

    Perhaps, all that Fonseka and his family may have wanted right now is to get the man out of that shit house somehow but without begging. Both RanilW faction and JVP have no clue on any of it but keep swanking to cover up fires in their own backyards. So, don’t be naive, they must be elated in secret for Fonseka political predicament.
