Speaker to seek clarity on withdrawal of MR’s Army security

Speaker Karu Jayasuriya today said he will seek clarity on the alleged withdrawal of the military security of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

The opposition raised concerns in Parliament today over the withdrawal of the Army security.

Opposition Parliamentarian Dullas Alahapperuma said that Rajapaksa has a threat to his life and so he must be given full security.

Leader of the House Lakshman Kiriella however said that Rajapaksa has been given STF security and that the STF is the best unit to give security.

Jayasuriya said that he will discuss the matter with the President, Prime Minister and Law and Order Minister. (Colombo Gazette)
