During a meeting at the ministry, Minister of foreign affairs, Thilak Maarapana has requested that the British high commissioner in Sri Lanka make a inquiry into the complete process followed by the British courts, and to reconsider the manner in which action has been taken against Brigadier Priyanka Fernando.

minister Maarapana requested that the inaccurate impression held by the international courts be rectified immediately  , noting that Brigadier Priyanka Fernando was a diplomat and holds diplomatic immunity.

Sources at the foreign ministry noted that the British high commissioner had assured rectification of facts would take place.

Several Tamil websites including the Tamil Guardian reported that the UK Westminster magistrates courts, had found  Brigadier Priyanka Fernando guilty of making a threatening gesture directed at pro LTTE factions,  at the Sri Lanka high commission in London on independence day last year.

The NGO, the Public interest law center had filed the case on behalf of the Tamil diaspora.

the Army noted however that they have no intention of producing Brigadier Fernando before the courts in the UK,  as he was on an official assignment at the time.
