Army Commander Mahesh Senanayake today said Defence Attache of the Sri Lankan High Commission in UK, Brigadier Priyanka Fernando was recalled to ensure his own safety.

He revealed this to media after declare opening the new office complex of the Wanni Defence Force’s 56th Contingent in Vavuniya.

“As the Army commander of the country, I have a responsibility to ensure his safety. This is not possible when he is executing duties under the law of another country. I summoned him to discuss about these matters. I will meet him after returning to Colombo. The decision whether Brigadier Priyanka’s conduct is accurate or inaccurate should be taken by someone else. He was not summoned because his term has expired. We are discussing how to ensure his safety,” he said. (Romesh Madusanka)

    "The decision whether Brigadier Priyanka’s conduct is accurate or inaccurate should be taken by someone else" Passing the bucks instead of dealing with? No wonder we are in this sordid state..

    If you go to another country as Diplomat behave a Diplomat. Don't stand on a independent day in front of the national flag and make unwanted signs.

    He should be court martialed and given a dishonorable discharge for bring Sri Lanka to international distrust.

    Two UK Labour MPs, are vice chair and senior vice chair of the tamil all party parliamentary group, which has close links with the tamil diaspora.Do they also support the tredding on and burning of a country's national flag and support a heinous terror group?

    Daniel Sunday, 25 February 2018 05:48 AM

    Why? Is touching own neck a crime?

    Chanaka Sunday, 25 February 2018 08:24 AM

    Why? What did he do wrong??? We d understand if he took a machine gun and gunned down those fools!!! Which he should have done!

    Gayan Saturday, 24 February 2018 06:46 PM

    This is a worse lie than when govt said they still have people's mandate.

    Unchikun Saturday, 24 February 2018 07:27 PM

    The Sri Lanka Defense Attache is brought back for is safety. What a hilarious excuse! He is there to defend Sri Lanka leave aside himself. Tell this to the birds.

    SAFETY seems to be your reason ? Sunday, 25 February 2018 07:16 AM

    SAFETY ? DOWN RIGHT LIE - see earlier new item - " The Foreign Office, in response to the GTF, assured that the UK government was taking the incident seriously." - SERIOUSLY for safety ? - my foot !

    Lokka Saturday, 24 February 2018 07:29 PM

    Telling one lie to cover up another lie.!! He should have said "we had to succumb to British government pressure, as the latter wanted to satisfy the Tamil diaspora".

    TJ Saturday, 24 February 2018 07:31 PM

    Give him a crash course in diplomatic behavior.Gestures such as throat slitting are considered as taboo in the civilized world.

    Mali Sunday, 25 February 2018 09:11 AM

    Exactly. I am surprised the comments of our readers mentality. This seem invaded by ltte and their diaspora mentality.

    ari Saturday, 24 February 2018 07:41 PM

    This is a reflection of how politicized the chiefs of our armed forces are. They have to sing to the tune of the political masters thus bringing shame to the valiant soldiers by such immature utterances.

    jaliya Saturday, 24 February 2018 07:50 PM

    Its not whether the accuracy of Brigadier Priyanka’s conduct ....It is about whether the Brigadier Priyanka followed the diplomatic protocol set by the office of the Sri Lankan High Commission in the U.K. its further confirmed that he was acting with the mental state of a solder rather a defense attache. I can sympathize his feelings but do not agree with his actions.

    Udugama Sunday, 25 February 2018 06:37 AM

    Jaliya,fellows like you with no loyalty to Sri Lanka but to your Christian masters have no right to comment on issues affecting Buddhists and Hindus.Be grateful that we are tolerating you in our country.

    Lord Wolfstein Sunday, 25 February 2018 10:37 AM

    Finally, realize that Sri Lanka is a member of the international community. The diplomats are expected to behave well as civilized people do, and not to behave as is customary in your jungle village, where people still take the law into their own hands. Good manners have nothing to do with religion.

    KE Saturday, 24 February 2018 08:08 PM

    Tamils in London are divided between Cultured Hindu Jaffna Tamils and Catholic or Catholic supported low class Tamils.The latter are the LTTE operatives in London and organisers of LTTE demonstrations.They should be all deported to Sri Lanka.

    das Saturday, 24 February 2018 08:15 PM

    This person simply revealed his stupidity to the entire world by behaving thus on TV. What a disgrace.

    kondaya77 Saturday, 24 February 2018 11:32 PM

    Where are the gentlemen officers? Only a" godaya".'

    Sarath Saturday, 24 February 2018 08:38 PM

    Commander more disgraceful than subordinate. You should accept he behaved dishonorably and take action. Otherwise how will people believe you will take action on other wrongs?

    Mali Sunday, 25 February 2018 09:14 AM

    Don't you still understand the politics that has invaded to forces. All this is cos of SF and Gota.

    Aussie Saturday, 24 February 2018 09:04 PM

    In the first place, it's a surprise as to how he became a Brigadier,when he was that ignorant.

    Saman Saturday, 24 February 2018 10:10 PM

    Wish they had the same commitment and urgency to bring Arjun Mahendran to the country.

    Kumara Saturday, 24 February 2018 11:16 PM

    According to Hansard UK parliament , SL was instructed to vacate his position in London by Ministry of Foreign and Commonwealth.

    realSaman Sunday, 25 February 2018 06:05 AM

    Under this spineless Government with no apparent mandate to rule, decisions are made to satisfy their Western Masters and LTTE proxies in the name of reconciliation. Their spin doctors are always good at coming up with an interesting story to satisfy the masses. Bus bomb story last week was another classic example!

    sam Sunday, 25 February 2018 06:25 AM

    Mahinda got another bullet (candidate) for the next general election.
