Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s military security will be replaced with police personnel by this afternoon, Mr. Rajapaksa's media unit said.

They said that 50 of 102 security detail, which included five Army Majors and 45 Commandos, would be replaced with four Sub Inspectors and 46 Police Constables.

“Though there are 102 personnel in the security detail, only 50 of them provide security while others carry out clerical and other tasks,” the media unit said.

    The God Father Monday, 02 May 2016 09:36 PM

    Even this is too much for MR, having said this; he need not to worry as God will protect him as God doesnt wanna kill him but ridicule him more and more.

    johan Monday, 02 May 2016 08:53 PM

    Since this is only a replacement of personnel.I do notthink the expenses could be reduced.

    Dee Monday, 02 May 2016 04:40 PM

    If 102 military personnel is the current number one can imagine how many when he was with unlimited power? Imagine the cist per day?

    Azmath Buhar Monday, 02 May 2016 04:32 PM

    Why MR cannot live in peace as a general public... then LTTE or any other criminals will not harm him.When there is power then only outsiders will attack, if no power then no one will attack.. simple as that...

    BUSHEL Monday, 02 May 2016 11:40 AM

    Yes.. You did not come to Galle... and I will teach you more..

    A third world despot with more security than US president?

    rathnasiri Monday, 02 May 2016 03:41 PM

    if you obey to m3 you will have no problem

    Unchikuni Monday, 02 May 2016 03:32 PM

    102 for an ex president security. What a waste of public funds. Lucky the President changes only 4 to 8 years. If it was an annual ritual, the VAT will have to be increased to 20%. Time to get away with the money eating Presidency.

    Stephen Monday, 02 May 2016 03:29 PM

    wonderful. even remove the police. useless people.

    C.K. Lankaputhra Monday, 02 May 2016 02:28 PM

    Good move to reduce wastage of peoples money.

    Fassey Monday, 02 May 2016 02:23 PM

    Yes that's enough for an MP. If he had retired and stayed athome like the former Presidents, he would have got all the regard and respect.
