    Why not make all senior naval officers up for retirement and make them commanders in one day and save on the costly ceremonials and tamashas that are an absolute waste of money.

    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.
