Summon IGP to Parliament – Fonseka (Video)

Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka has requested the Speaker to summon the IGP to Parliament to inquire into allegations being levelled against Fonseka by the President claiming that he is involved in the conspiracy to assassinate the President.

Addressing the foreign media last weekend, President Maithripala Sirisena said he had no intention of appointing Sarath Fonseka as the Prime Minister as he was behind the plot to assassinate him.

Sarath Fonseka urged the Speaker yesterday in parliament saying, “Summon the IGP to parliament within 48 hours.”

“Either have me arrested or take action against these allegations,” Fonseka urged the Speaker.

Fonseka also noted that he had never had any desire of becoming the country’s Prime Minister.
