MP Udaya Gammanpila stated that Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka has put the lives of over 300,000 soldiers in danger by stating that he will provide evidence against Military personnel who committed war crimes during the war.
Speaking to the Media at a press briefing today, MP Gammanpila stated that the only way to save the lives of the soldiers is to diagnose the Field Marshal as a mental patient. He made this remark in response to Field Marshal Fonseka stating that former Army Commander Jagath Jayasuriya committed war-crimes during his tenure as Army Chief.
He further went on to state that Sarath Fonseka has appealed to Tamil Separatists who were lying in wait for an opportunity to cause disarray within the public after a hiatus of 8 years. MP Gammanpila stated that parties intending on punishing innocent soldiers need no more evidence than the testimony of the war-time Army Chief to put away the brave sons who fought for the freedom of the nation.
MP Gammanpila stated that the actions of Sarath Fonseka are only appreciated by the Separatists attempting to disrupt the peace of the North.
