SL High Commission in London suspends defence counsellor

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said it has taken “serious note” of a video circulating online showing the Defence attache to the Sri Lanka High Commission in London making threatening gestures towards protestors on Sunday.

“In this connection, instructions have been sent to Sri Lanka’s High Commissioner in London today, February 6, 2018, to suspend him from work, with immediate effect,” the Ministry said in a statement.

The video shows the counsellor behaving in an offensive manner towards Tamil protestors across the street from the High Commision.

“Authorities in Sri Lanka including the Sri Lanka Army will initiate inquiries on the incident immediately,” the Foreign Ministry said.
