    Once he reach the age of 55 years he has to retire. Those are rules and regulations.

    Isn't this an automatic elevation under military protocol?

    Is this the respect given to a man who has rendered a yeoman service to the country? Appointed as the vice admiral on 18 August and "dumping" in less than three months (and merely galvanising him as an admiral)....These hilarious acts are present only in this country...Just pathetic....

    Should have given at least an years extension by the President. May be he did not toe the line with the powers in mega tenders. via DM Android App

    If he had done some laundry work like white vans, criminal contracts, murders for parliamentarians his term would have been extended, no doubt.

    if he had given the greenlight to go ahead with the russian shipping deal, he could have remained as the commander. but he is a true trinity lion. .Respice Finem

    I hate to think on narrow ethnic lines ..but hearkening to think that there were high ranking officers in the forces of the minority group in the height of the civil war that beat the drums of discrimination ..All good luck to you Sir ..may you have strength to maintain the security of our blessed isle .

    Adm. Ranasinghe should have been appointed COfN to begin with. Adm. Sinniah retired from the Navy on his own accord, and had no issue with the then government. There was no political victimisation as claimed. Had he stayed, he would have been made commander anyway. This government has made a mess of things and caused much humiliation to this veteran soldier.
