Defence Secretary Hemasiri Fernando resigns

Defence Secretary Hemasiri Fernando has resigned from his post.

He handed over his resignation letter today on a request made by President Maithripala Sirisena.

Hemasiri Fernando was asked to resign following the Easter Sunday bombings.


  1. The Sri Lankan intelligence network is very weak. Surely, the President and Prime Minister have allowed the intelligence networks to be lesser serious than during the war. Therefore, they must also resign. They can not found a scapegoat to keep their positions. If they truly value those people who have died then President and Prime Minister must resign. Once you had eliminated the LTTE, the foreign powers will be seeking new group to replace the LTTE. You should have known this and actively monitoring the moves of the people. I urge the intelligence network to monitor people who travel to India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and other Muslim countries.
