Sarath Fonseka, former Commander of the Sri Lanka Army, has instructed his wife Anoma and his children not to appeal for pardon on behalf of him as he had done nothing wrong, media reports in Colombo said. He had issued this instruction to Anoma Fonseka when she visited him in Welikada prison Friday where her husband is serving a rigorous imprisonment. Sarath Fonseka had told his wife that there was no necessity to apologize on his behalf as he had done nothing wrong, the report said.

Anoma was allowed to meet her husband in jail Friday on a special request made by her to the prison authorities.

The Second Court Martial recommended thirty-six months rigorous imprisonment on being found guilty for violating tender procedure in procuring arms to the army while serving as the Commander of SLA.

Later Sri Lanka’s President Mahinda Rajapaksa had ratified the jail sentence reducing it to thirty months,
