The Defence Attaché of Sri Lanka High Commission in London, Brigadier Priyanka Fernando has arrived in Sri Lanka.
 
Speaking at the weekly cabinet media briefing yesterday, Military Spokesperson Brig. Sumith Atapattu said Brig. Fernando was recalled by the Sri Lanka Army for consultations.
 
Brig. Priyanka Fernando's name came into prominence following an incident that occurred opposite the London High Commission premises on the Independence Day (Feb. 04).
 
Next day, the Foreign Ministry announced that the High Commissioner was directed to suspend the services of Brig. Fernando.
 
However, President Maithripala Sirisena overruled that directive and ordered him to be reinstated.
 
The Military Spokesperson said that Brigadier Priyanka Fernando was recalled to ensure his personal security and the image of the country’s diplomatic service is safeguarded.
 
Meanwhile, earlier today (Feb. 22), Foreign Secretary announced that Sri Lanka’s High Commissioner in London Amari Wijewardana has resigned from her post.
