Show “kindness and mercy,” said the chief clerics of Sri Lanka’s main Buddhist chapters and Christian denominations in their recent letter to President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
The former general was arrested on Feb. 8, 2010 and is serving a 30-month jail sentence. He was credited with winning the war against the rebel Tamil Tigers but charged with corrupt arms dealings and conspiracy to topple the government after his defeat to President Mahinda Rajapaksa in the presidential election.
