Leader of the House Minister Lakshman Kiriella has observed that the previous regime jailed the war winning Army Commander Sarath Fonseka, and now the Joint Opposition is shedding crocodile tears on war heroes.
He was responding to Dinesh Gunawardena’s question raised under Standing Order. Minister Kiriella, informed the House that the Foreign Minister would reply to the question within two weeks.
He added that Sarath Fonseka’s statement was not the Government position. That was a personal opinion expressed by Minister Fonseka. Moreover, legal action against General Jayasuriya had not been filed by any foreign Government, but by some groups of persons.
