* Sri Lanka's former Army Commander ready to answer any war crime charges
Wed, Feb 27, 2013, 09:24 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 27, Colombo: Sarath Fonseka, Sri Lanka's former Army Commander and the leader of unregistered Democratic Party, said in a press conference in Colombo today that he was ready to answer any alleged war crime charges brought by international investigators.

He said that the United Nations was preparing to bring a resolution to enforce an international war crime investigation on Sri Lanka and pointed out that the resolution might give powers to an international council to come to Sri Lanka for a probe even without visa.

In such context, the ousted and dishonorably dismissed former Army Commander said that his services would be needed to counter the allegations.

Fonseka recently dismissed the allegation that the minor son of Tamil rebel leader Velupillai Prabhakaran was killed by Sri Lanka Army.
