The army contingent provided for former Defense Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa numbering 50 had been reduced to 25 as from yesterday and they had been replaced by the Police STF.

This had been made following a decision taken by the security council to remove army contingents from providing security to VIPs and replacing them with STF cadres. It has also been decided that in the near future the remaining army cadres would also be replaced with STF cadres. (Indika Ramanayake)

    50? For what? Another war?

    Good decision. In reality, public servants don't need any security. But I presume in his case because of his numerous wrong doings to the public. He can be like all of us to enjoy a common life and to walk freely on the walking paths made by them.

    I disagree with these comments. He and not MR was the prime target of the LTTE. He needs good security and the country owes this to him. Talking of him as merely a retired Ministry Secretary is utter rubbish!

    Don't waste innocent taxpayers harden earn money. Make it zero. No war no fear.
