Priyankara Fernando arrives in Sri Lanka

 

Minister Counsellor (Defence) attached to the Sri Lankan High Commission in London, Brigadier Priyankara Fernando arrived in Sri Lanka a short while ago.

He was recalled for special consultations on the video published on social media capturing him making a ‘throat slitting’ gesture in response to a Tamil group of protesters outside the Sri Lankan High Commission premises in London.

Brigadier Priyankara Fernando was immediately recalled from his service following the release of the video but was reinstated soon after, with the intervention of President Maithripala Sirisena.
