Forty two officers attached to former president Mahinda Rajapaksa’s security detail had been recalled to the Ministerial Security Division (MSD) today, Mr. Rajapaksa’s Private Secretary Udith Lokubandara said.

He said no replacement had been made so far. Meanwhile, Mr. Rajapaksa's Media Secretary Rohan Weliwita said the group of security officers had been recalled on immediate service requirements.

However, when contacted, Police Spokesman DIG Priyantha Jayakody said no such order had been issued by the Police Headquarters so far but an internal order may have been issued by the MSD. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    He is already have excessive security since LTTE is defunct now.. He gave only couple of policeman to chandrika at the height of LTTE threat. every one knows what Happened to Gen Janak Pererera an patritic oficer and gentleman. Rajapakse gave him only two cops and Let him blown out by LTTE. now He is winging because He has no thousands of guards arround Him.

    Just Another Citizen Thursday, 04 May 2017 08:56 AM

    Why do MPs need so much security anyway. we dont have a war so whats the risk. MPs and politicians in other countries travel by bus walk and even on bicycles. its only in this part of the world that politicians are treated like gods. via DM Android App

    The greatest insult that this maniac can get is to drown in his own vomit.

    Kithsirir Thursday, 04 May 2017 09:10 AM

    Its crystal clear that he doesnt need hundreds of body guards. 2 given for a MP is enough

    TONY Thursday, 04 May 2017 07:05 PM

    John Thursday, 04 May 2017 11:56 AM

    42 removed, how many remain?!

    Desmond Jeromme Thursday, 04 May 2017 08:25 PM

    Mahinda who supported LTTE with 30 million will be safe, no need security for him.

    Bubble Banda Thursday, 04 May 2017 08:28 PM

    Mahinda only needs security when he is fully dunked and fallen in the streets, not other-wise.

    Honda Hitha Ranil Thursday, 04 May 2017 08:30 PM

    Those days, MR had security to his "Toilet" too at Temple Trees.... what a waste? MS will not allow a single penny to be misused.

    J Palitha Thursday, 04 May 2017 08:32 PM

    MR deployed 55 STF personal to guard his dogs at temple trees. What a waste?

    AliG Thursday, 04 May 2017 12:07 PM

    42 were recalled. He still has more than 100.

    German Jacob Thursday, 04 May 2017 08:35 PM

    Vasu had given the assurance on the word of his matchan (CM Jaffna) that he will save him from LTTE. So, why this fellow needs security?

    One short Ranjan Thursday, 04 May 2017 08:37 PM

    Mahinda supported LTTE with millions so no need of fearing about his life. Security (X) ..means "NO"

    J Palitha Thursday, 04 May 2017 08:39 PM

    When MR was the President he had 400 Security personal, but now he is only a MP, what he has is more than enough.

    Vijith Pieterz Thursday, 04 May 2017 08:40 PM

    Correct, according to true SriLankans, MR is dead and no more, why security for a dead man?

    Kamal Wednesday, 03 May 2017 10:29 PM

    Ha ha ha.... Message is crystal clear... Gallface rally made Yahapalana leaders to having night marers.

    SL Thursday, 04 May 2017 02:09 PM

    tiger cubs are still afraid of him

    B S Perera Thursday, 04 May 2017 02:10 PM

    We chased him out. But reducing security is not good

    Alston Thursday, 04 May 2017 02:15 PM

    Spending so much for security is an utter waste of public money. They go there to serve people and not to enjoy comforts at poor public expense. via DM Android App

    Sri Wickrema Thursday, 04 May 2017 02:22 PM

    He is the one and only defeated president in Sri Lanka. As a MP he is entitled for usual security.

    Casanova Wednesday, 03 May 2017 11:15 PM

    Ha Ha Ha Crystal clear that he doen't need too many Body Guards.

    Pramod Fernando Thursday, 04 May 2017 12:49 AM

    Oh what a fast action purely out of jealousy!

    ED Thursday, 04 May 2017 04:20 AM

    James Bond Thursday, 04 May 2017 05:21 AM

    He is just another retired citizen of Sri Lanka living on tax payers money and stolen money. So what security?

    Leo Thursday, 04 May 2017 06:16 AM
