Sarath Fonseka – The megalomaniac’s tryst with fame and flame - Unda Rajah

Danuna Tilakaratne - General (retired) Sarath Fonseka: Son-in-Law and Father-in-Law - a joint arms deal
In our earlier report we presented facts on how the son-in-law of Gen Sarath Foneska, the then army commander, made blood money with every bullet and shell fired by the army in the Wanni war.
