Reports say that an army brigadier who had served as a security advisor at the Sri Lankan Embassy in the Washington DC has disappeared.

It was noted that his disappearance coincided with  the end of his term in office.

The army said that it believed that the brigadier was in hiding somewhere in the US, avoiding his return to Sri Lanka.

This brigadier who was attached to the Gajabaa Regiment during the former regime, had been appointed to the Sri Lankan embassy in the US in December 2014, to serve as a security advisor.

It was noted that whilst his term of office ended last year in 2016, he had not reported to the army as required.

Reports say that the foreign affairs ministry has requested the assistance of Interpol to have the brigadier arresteed.

The army have taken steps taking into consideration that the brigadier has vacated the post without obtaining leave.
