The Joint Opposition said today that the curtailing of the security provided to former President Mahinda Rajapaksa was a well-planned conspiracy hatched by several national and international forces in an attempt to eliminate him from politics.

JO member and MP Prasanna Ranatunga told a media briefing that a group of security officers who were assigned for VIP protection with foreign training of Mr. Rajapaksa had been re-called under immediate service requirements on last Tuesday, just after the May Day rally.

“In several instances during the May Day rallies, Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka and Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne have hinted on some sort of danger which could risk the life of Mr. Rajapaksa in the future,” he said.

He also said that the trimming of Mr. Rajapaksa’s security was a serious matter of concern and added that it was a huge threat to his life. (Kalathma Jayawardhane)

    How about the Under-world gang who works for him, won't they protect him.

    He has 99% thugs in the JO who worship him as God, why not these guys protect him, moreover he is just a ordinary MP now.

    Agree with Shanthi Peiris - MR has lost all respect of an ex-President with his behaviour. He should have retired gracefully like all other ex-Presidents he would then be respected as an Ex-President now he has only the Galle Face crowd to protect him. In any case why does he need so many security guards at the cost of the public expenses? He says he is fearless, then why so many security guards. 10 would be the most.

    Shanthi Peiris Friday, 05 May 2017 12:24 AM

    He should not expect the respect and security of a Ex President. He disgraced the Presidency and shamelessly entered the Parliament as a back bench MP to escape punishment for the corruption and other atrocities committed when he was in power.

    what about the crowd at Galle Face, won't they protect him?

    Tamils view that some leaders are threat to their security and survival because they can repeat the same war crimes since none are punished for war crimes.
