Decision to reduce Mahinda’s police security reversed

A decision taken to reduce the police security of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa has been reversed.

Police Headquarters had yesterday decided to remove 50 police officers attached to Rajapaksa’s security unit.

However the decision was reversed today. The move to reduce the number of police officers was taken just days after his Army security was also reduced.

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

The opposition earlier raised concerns in Parliament over the withdrawal of the Army security. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. We are the people of Sri lanka feel easy after end of 30 years of LTTE led Tamil Terrorist which War against Democracy of our nation was defeated by MR ruling alliances .

    End of War has give an easy-life for Not only Sinhalese ,why not Tamils, Muslim and other innocent who are living peacefully our land? PEACE IS First in kind of People’s Democracy.

    That gratitude must give to President Mahinda Rajapakasa by all Sri Lankan irrespective of narrow political differences.

    Peace is like Bread and Butter of all human being in our Island who had been victims of War .

    Ours National duty and responsibility of relevant power provide maximum security MR without political manipulations.

    Man who give leadership to peaceful-life for the people that, he deserved for state security is basic norms of Democratic Society.

  2. Mahinda is the only one needs security. Both Sirisena and Chandrika are holding hands with Tamil groups so they do not need any security. Even Sarath Fonseka is with Tamils and no complain for killing Tamils. Unfortunately these people still rule the country using double standards.
