Rajapaksa’s military security was withdrawn today despite a request he made to the Ministry of
Defence to reconsider the decision.
He had urged the Ministry of Defence to maintain his army security as his life is under threat.
However the Ministry of Defence decided to withdraw his military security in line with a decision taken to replace all VIP army security with the STF.
The military security provided to former President Mahinda Rajapaksa was also withdrawn recently. (Colombo Gazette)
