Fonseka seeks law and order portfolio

Sri Lanka's former army commander, Sarath Fonseka, who is accused of orchestrating war crimes against the Tamil people, sought to be appointed the minister of the law and order, arguing he would demonstrate quick results. 

"I will show results in six months if I am given the portfolio of Law and Order" Mr Fonseka was quoted by the Daily Mirror as saying. 

Advising against appointing the former president Mahinda Rajapaksa as the leader of the Opposition, Mr Fonseka said, "country will go back to the era of depressing media rights if those who were rejected by the people are given an opportunity."
