Mar 31, Colombo: Former Sri Lanka Army Commander Retired General Sarath Fonseka's wife Anoma Fonseka said her husband has not been referred to a specialized doctor despite the clear deterioration in his health.
Anoma told the media today (31) that although the Court has permitted his personal physicians to visit him, no such arrangements have been made to facilitate such a visit.
She also denied statements made by the Military Spokesperson that General Fonseka has been provided with the required facilities and that he was shown to a specialized doctor in her presence.
Anoma said General Fonseka requires special attention due to his condition. "Doctors have said there are shrapnel in his lungs following the LTTE suicide attack on him in 2006. He requires a lot of fresh air. That is why he requested an air conditioner, but government ministers said hurtful things about it. Doctors proposed that the General's room be fitted with an air conditioner," she said.
Anoma observed that although the government has taken steps to open the sealed windows after installing a mesh on them, it was insufficient to provide the required fresh air to General Fonseka.
