The Frontline Socialist Party (FLSP) demands to know what Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka, who boasted of having spared its leader Kumar Gunaratnam’s life in 1989, had done to other JVP suspects held in the Kantale army camp.

FLSP Central Committee Member Pubudu Jagoda told The Island that Field Marshal Fonseka had recently claimed that the latter had spared Gunaratnam in 1989. “Fonseka says he, as the commanding officer of that camp, spared Gunaratnam because the latter had grovelled, pleading for mercy. We demand to know what happened to other suspects who were being held together with Gunaratnam.”

An army team led by Sarath Fonseka arrested Gunaratnam in October 1989 in Trincomalee and held him in the Kantale Army Camp, Jagoda said.

“There were many other JVP suspects in custody at that time in that camp. Some of them were university students. What we ask Will Fonseka tell the world what he had done to others who did or did not grovel before him pleading for mercy?”
