The discovery of a suicide kit and explosives in Vallakulam, Chavakachcheri wasn’t a threat for the national security, Defence Secretary Karunasena Hettiarachchi said today.

Addressing a press conference, Mr. Hettiarachchi said there’s a huge gap between the national security and the discovery of such explosives.

He also said there could be such items, which had been abandoned and gathered during the war period.

“Discoveries of such guns and explosives are frequently reported to us from these areas during the past years. Especially the Police are carrying out investigations regarding them and it is a responsibility of them to solve such issues. The defence forces won’t work on such matters,” he added.

He said the Defence Ministry’s responsibility was to estimate and validate the threat to the national security after obtaining such reports from the Police.

“If the Police were in need of any support from the defence sector, we are ready to help them,” he added. (Kalathma Jayawardhane)

    He may be right, but he should come with some more tangible facts, such as to how frequently police found such things after the war and what possibilities are there for some undesirable elements to plant such things and push the government to another civil war!

    Is this the defense secretary of Sri Lanka? What type of defense experience does this person have? To me personally, I dont see and suitability of this person to be the defense secretary especially the way he responded to the journalists. How can he assure that there is no threat to the National security without investigating why these explosives were there in that house and who is behind this.

    Not very reassuring comments. This man's knowledge about national security seems to be very very very limited.

    Pass the ball till it explodes in your face and then tell us "Oh right, it is a bomb!! "
