The Presidential Guard which was set up during the tenure of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa has been disbanded with effect from April 30, Military Spokesman Jayanath Jayaweera said today.

However, he said the security provided to the former President would not be affected by this move.

The presidential guard which was formed in 2008 came under the purview of the Presidential Security Division (PSD) and comprised personnel from the three armed forces.
