Anoma Fonseka states that the process of withdrawing the appeal filed by Sarath Fonseka would be looked into by Senior Attorneys.
It is the view of certain parties that the appeal filed by Fonseka impinges on his presidential pardon.
Speaking further Anoma Fonseka noted that the family hopes to act on mollifying Fonseka mental health once he arrives home.
According to Anoma Fonseka, Sarath Fonseka is expected to seek the guidance of several religious leaders on this behalf.
Meanwhile the Presidential Secretariat informed today that the papers regarding Fonseka's release were signed by President Mahinda Rajapaksa on the eve of Friday this week.
According to sources these papers will be forwarded to the Ministry of Justice tomorrow.
