On one occasion a sailor working under his command was tragically killed, and another occasion a policeman was killed due to the lack of the operational skills. But, where is the justice, many officers silentely questioned

( January 5, 2018, Colombo, Sri Lanka Guardian) By accepting the babe recommendations of the Secretary to the Ministry of Defence as well as the Commander of the Navy; the President Maithripala Sirisena has been granted one-year service extension to one of the worse naval officers in Sri Lankan Navy. He who is currently serving as the second in command of the institute is well known among the Sri Lankan Navy as a political schemer and backbiter.
The particular officer has celebrated his 55th birthday a few days ago and managed to manipulate the situation to secure his extension as the first and most important step to be the successor of the incumbent.
However, internal sources in the institute indicated that this officer is one of the worse naval officers the Sri Lanka Navy ever produced where he earned records for nothing but failing and escaping the danger during the difficult time.
On one occasion a sailor working under his command was tragically killed, and another occasion a policeman was killed due to the lack of the operational skills. Therefore, the sources indicated, he has earned no moral authority to enjoy the state benefits at the cost of dead men.
He, one time, was working as the Defence Attaché in the Sri Lankan mission in Delhi, is one of the top responsible parties for allowing and supporting the wrongdoings of infamous Avant Garde Maritime Services headed by one former Sri Lankan Army Major.
