A group of Sri Lankans staged a demonstration in front of the British Parliament yesterday (Feb. 24) against recalling of Brig. Priyanka Fernando, the Defence Attache of the High Commission in London.

He was recalled over an incident which occurred during a protest staged by a group of LTTE supporters on 4th of February.

Following that incident was widely publicized by Social Media, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs directed the High Commissioner in London to terminate the service of Brig. Priyanka Fernando.

However, he was reinstated following a direct order by President Maithripala Sirisena.

Despite, this, the Sri Lanka Army recalled the Brigadier last week, citing it was done to ensure his security.

Our correspondent said a large number of Sri Lankans living in the UK attended the demonstration held in London.
