* Chest specialist re-examines Sri Lanka's detained military leader
Wed, Apr 7, 2010, 07:26 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 07, Colombo: For a second time the same chest specialist from the Chest Clinic at Colombo National Hospital conducted another thorough examination on Sri Lanka's former military commander retired General Sarath Fonseka who is being detained at the naval headquarters.

The specialist who examined General Sarath Fonseka two days ago has re-confirmed that he continues to be in good health and does not show any deterioration in his health as his wife and the party he leads allege.

The specialist examined the retired general on Monday (5) at the Navy Headquarters following a request made by General's wife Anoma Fonseka to the Commander of the Army for specialist medical advice.

However, Mrs. Fonseka at a media briefing yesterday expressed doubts over the earlier examination by the chest specialist.

"They had not mentioned the name of the doctor who had examined him. The fact that they didnít name the doctor is a little suspicious," she said.

General Fonseka was arrested on February 8 by the military police and is currently being detained at the Navy Headquarters pending two military tribunals.
