Fmr. President and fmr. Defense Secretary didn’t hide in fear of war – Fonseka
Posted on September 28th, 2018

Former Army Commander Field marshal Sarath Fonseka stated that neither he nor the former President nor the former Defense Minister hid away in fear of the war.

He mentioned this to the media following an annual literary festival held at the Kelaniya Divisional Secretariat this morning (28).

Responding to a journalist’s question on a statement made by President Maithripala Sirisena in New York, he said that there are many other aspects such as administration to pay attention to while a war is ongoing. It is not merely waiting to pull the trigger from the moment war starts, he added.

He further said that those responsibilities fall on to senior officials and during the final weeks of the war, former President had to leave the country, while he, too, had to visit China for an official purpose.

A war can never be decided in 2 weeks and what was left to do during the last 2 weeks was something even a corporal could have done, says Fonseka.

He further says that he wonders how people think that it is possible to finish a war in 2 weeks.

    Where was Fonseka from May 11 to May 17, 2009?

    The last days of the war is haunting us with war crimes allegations. That is why they are important.

    As Wimal once said, despite the absence of the groom, the honeymoon has gone ahead!

    Sirisena was very clever in seeking expertise from international law experts during the 2 days (not 2 weeks) he was acting defence minister. Otherwise he would have been made a scapegoat in war crimes. His this act convinced me he’s cleverer than he seems.
