Army Commander Lieutenant General Daya Rathnayaka has issued instructions to the Legal Director Board of the Army for soldiers who are connected to crimes in Civil Society to be Court Martialed expediently.


Accordingly the Media Center for National Security stated that the soldier who attempted to rob a bank in Kandy masquerading as a Muslim woman has been subjected a court martial.


This is the first occasion where a soldier who has a case filed against him in Penal Court has been Court Martialed.
