Sangakkara commended

Jul 12, 2011 2:44:35 AM - news.lk

Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa has commended former Sri Lankan Cricket Captain  Kumar Sangakkara for solidly backing the country’s successful war effort against the LTTE at a time a section of the international community is targeting the Sri Lankan military over accountability issues. Mr. Rajapaksa has said that the former national cricket captain had taken advantage of the 2011 Sir Colin Cowdrey Lecture he delivered at Lord’s last week to talk about 1983 July riots, the JVP-led insurgency, LTTE terrorism and the heavy price paid by the military to defeat the LTTE.
