Sarath Fonseka, former Commander of the Sri Lanka Army and the leader of the Democratic National Alliance (DNA), was discharged from the prison hospital and sent back to his cell at the Welikada Prison Saturday afternoon, according to Commissioner of Prisons Major General. V.R. Silva. He was suddenly taken ill after he returned from the inquiry in the Colombo High Court in a case in which he was charged for causing disrepute to the government by giving an interview to the Sunday Leader, English weekly published from Colombo. He was then immediately transferred to prison hospital.

Sarath Fonseka in the interview had alleged that the Defense Secretary Gotabaya Rajapakse had ordered Major General Shavendra Silva to shoot all LTTE cadres dead who come forward with white flags to surrender.

The inquiry into this case was put off for November 23 as Sarath Fonseka was admitted to prison hospital
