Just weeks after being freed by the government former Army Chief Sarath Fonseka has been provided with security by the government.

The Sri Lanka government is under international as well as domestic pressure to return most privileges he has lost due to the ex-generals incarceration.

Fonseka  requested the opposition to withdraw a private members bill seeking the revocation of government acts against him like suspension of civil rights , suspension of his pension his convictions that would allow him to enter parliament, taking away of his military titles and medals.

The government security team is led by an insepector of police.

Venerable Maduluwawe Sobhitha Thero , a politically powerful Bhuddhist priest at a public meeting taken part by hundreds of bhikkus urged the President to give back his lost rights.

Since the release the former General has not taken part in any active politics though he is the leader of the political party Democratic National Alliance.

The  former army commander is credited of leading the country’s armed forces to victory ending a war that lasted 30 years.

During his incarceration of about three years the United States called him a political prisoner.(

    What ever he is he will be always be under the threat of the terrorists he helped to defeat and it is proper that he should be given the protection he needs and the accommodation that should given to a such a person.
    He must not indulge in politics but contribute to the island in some way.There’s no room for two elephants in the room.He was used by people like Ranil who couldn’t face another defeat.If we like it or not MR deserve that post for getting rid of the terrorists from the land.
    In turn MR should act with responsibility to all that dwell in the island instead of he indulging in a faith and belief(of his religion),instead he should indulge in reality of running the country as the chief administrator making vital decisions with his cabinet.His cabinet is not at asgiriya temple but at temple trees.We all stood in cold for him giving him moral support in Uk we expect him to get on with running the country.Temples and churches are left for freaks and for politicians to indulge in that looks like another freak show.
    Mr Prez is delighted to know the people in UK that include the Police regret the treatment but wish him the best.It’s all politics just like in corrupt SL.
