LESSONS LEARNED-PRESIDENTIAL PARDON FOR SARATH FONSEKA WAS A MISTAKE
Posted on February 5th, 2019

By M D P DISSANAYAKE

President Sirisena gave full pardon to former convicted criminal Sarath Fonseka  simultaneously restoring, redecorating, recycling all his privileges, colours etc.   Subsequently he was awarded the prestigious Award of Field Marshal .

Mr Gotabaya Rajapakse made strong recommendations to President Mahinda Rajapakse to appoint Sarath Fonseka for the role of Army Commander, by-passing several other Senior High Ranked Officials.

Has Sarath Fonseka learnt any lessons and was he grateful to those who helped him when he was in difficulty?  Or President Sirisena  and Mr Gotabaya Rajapakse are having second thoughts of their past actions?

Instead of releasing Sarath Fonseka, the President could have released some other ordinary citizen in prison, in such situations the President Sirisena may not have to face derogatory remarks and insults from the Field Marshal SF today.   We cannot read the mind-set of an individual.  As Peter Falk said in Columbo, YOU CAN’T GET A SEARCH WARRANT FOR WHAT IS INSIDE YOUR MIND”.  If Galaboda Aththe Buddhist monk had been released,  it  would not take 24 hours for him turn back and  display his anger, use abusive language and create chaos in the country.   Whilst  hundreds of ordinary citizens are daily arrested and prisoned for committing crimes, it is seldom key figures  such as Sarath Fonseka, Duminda Silva, Buddharakkitha, Galaboda Aththe are caught and punished.     With the lessons learned, such persons should remain behind bars, thus providing peace and harmony for the civil society.

    Fonseka should never have been made the Field Marshall. It was done to spite President Mahinda Rajapakse, same as the swearing in of Ranil W as the Prime Minister. Both were wrong decision. It took four years for President Sirisena to realise that. What to do, that is bad Karma and we all have to go through it.

    The worst thing the stupid Prime Minisqter Ranil doin now is signing contracts without consulting the Parliament. He has signed a contract to give 2000 acres of land from Trincomalee to USA Navy to create a holiday centre for the Soldiers of the US Fleed in the Indian Ocean. He may also probably enter into a trade agreement with EU. How to stop all this ?

    Forget about the Galagodaatte Monk for a while. He is a trouble maker and created resistance between Muslims and Buddhists due to some NGO need. Most probably Norway funded, which helped the Regime Change project in 2015.

    My3 should release the Army Intelligent officers from their unfair arrests and remand / jail term. They are true heroes and true sons of Mother Lanka.

  4. DR M D P DISSANAYAKE Says:

    Agree with Hiranthe. We hope MR is now in a position to bring pressure on MS pardon War Heroes on any of the 3 important occasions, Sinhala New Year, Wesak and Poson Poya days. MS badly need popularity and few extra votes. MR has successfully woken up MS from fast sleep over 4 years, average citizens are waiting for eleventh hour constructive actions from President MS. It is do or die for him!

    (2) Illeterate PRIEST!!
    (3) STILL,NO PROPER EXPLAINATION HAS BEEN DISCLOSED BY SO CALLED,INHUMAN,EXTRIMISTS,!!!>
    (4) CAN ANY WELL MANNERED, RELIGIOUS MINDED or BUDDHIST CULTURED MINDED, INDEPENDENT SRILANKAN
    EXPLAIN & DISCLOSE THE REASON FOR VEN,GNASARA THERO TO BE FOUND FAULT AND SENTENSED?
    (5) IS THE SRI LANKAN JUDITIORY UNBIASSED MINDED,KIND MINDED,WELL MANNERED,WHO ABSTAIN FROM
    CONSUMING LIQUOR?
    (6) WHO PRACTICES & OBSERVE (WHO ARE BUDDHISTS) ATLEAST THE “GREAT FIVE PRECEIPTS OF BUDHISM”,

    I THINK THERE IS NONE!!!
    Therefore,RELEASING REV,GNASARA THERO IS NOT A CRIME!!!!!
    BUT “NOT RELEASING WITH A PARDON ON EVE OF THE SRI LANKAN INDEPENDANCE DAY”” IS A GREAT CRIME”””

    VERY SOON,THOSE WHO ADVISED GRAMA SEVAKA SIRISENA,”NOT TO RELEASE VEN GNASAARA THERO BUT HAS RELEASED MANY OTHER “””””CRIMINALS”””””

    THIS ACT WILL RESULT IN BEFAULING:”DHITTA! DHAMMA!! VEDANEEYA KARMAYA”

    ON ALL THOSE WHOSAID NOT TO RELEASE HIM!!!!!!!HAVING RELEASED MANY CRIMINALS!!!!!!
