UNP: Govt. Trying To Send Army Personnel Home

Feb 3, 2011 10:25:38 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The UNP today (3) said the government was trying to make 60,000 Army personnel to retire without a pension after getting their services during the war.

UNP MP Dayasiri Jayasekera told a press conference today that some of the army personnel who are to be sent home have provided their services to the force for over 15 years during the height of the war.

He added that some others who are to be sent home on various charges have actually served what ever punishment given to them by the force, which were ignored at the time in order to get them to fight the war.

Jayasekera said that the government has now reduced the army to sell vegetables.
