The Military Police has launched an investigation into the sale of Liquor reportedly at the Wadduwa Army Holiday Resort, the Army said.
“Army Commander Crishanthe De Silva, very concerned over some media reports on the alleged sale of liquor at the above Wadduwa Army Holiday Resort, has immediately instructed the Military Police to initiate investigations into the matter forthwith. Accordingly, the Military Police have already begun investigations,” the Army Headquarters said in a statement.
The Army Chief has further instructed relevant authorities to deal severely with wrong doers, irrespective of their rank or status, following Military Police findings and take all disciplinary action against everyone, involved in any such unlawful act according to military law, it added.
The Wadduwa Army Holiday Resort, meant to further promote welfare of both officers and other ranks while paying more dividends to them, was established in 1991 and was recently re-branded as the 'Laya Beach'.
Why does the Army run businesses? Their wages and other perks are paid by the taxpayer therefore they get an unfair advantage over the rest. I also think that there is some international convention against this.
