Sri Lanka’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN in New York Bandula Jayasekara has been recalled to Colombo just a few months after he was appointed to the post, External Affairs Ministry sources told Daily Mirror online.
External Affairs Ministry sources added that Jayasekera, a former Sri Lankan Consul General to Toronto, Canada, had been given time to return to Colombo but remained tight lipped over the reasons behind his recall.
When asked by Daily Mirror online as to why Jayasekera was recalled to Colombo External Affairs Ministry sources said “the information was too sensitive” and refused to comment further.
Before being appointed a diplomat, Jayasekera was the Managing Editor of The Colombo Post and the Editor in Chief of the Daily News and also the News Editor of Sri Lanka's first private radio station. (Daily Mirror online)
