A REQUEST TO RESTORE THE ARMY COMMNDO UNIT SPECIALISED IN VIP SECURITY TO SRI LANKA ‘S FORMER PRESIDENT MR MAHINDA RAJAPAKSE TO AVERT A THRAET TO HIS LIFE.

We, The United Australians of Sri Lankan Organisations are extremely perturbed by the Sri Lankan Government’s recent decision to replace the elite Army Commando Unit that has provided personal security Mr Mahinda Rajapakse’s with a Police Unit.

Recent news originating from Sri Lanka shows that some LTTE terrorists are still active transporting suicide bomb kits etc.   Hence it is very clear that Mr Rajapakse would have to be considered as a prime target of this terror group.

The existing cadres of the LTTE which suffered an ignominious military defeat under Mr Mahinda Rajapakse’s leadership and their local and external backers will not forgive or forget how Mr. Rajapakse comprehensively thwarted their attempt to establish a racist separate country and hence they will continue to target him.

Further, it has to be remembered that a number of popular Sri Lankan and international leaders who provided leadership in national liberation struggles against the dictates of the fascist forces were assassinated by those forces.

We believe that Mr Mahinda Rajapakse remains a popular leader and continues to play an integral role in the political stability of the country.  Furthermore we believe that a large number of Sri Lankans are extremely grateful to him for defeating the terrorism of the LTTE which has given them freedom, peace of mind and hope for the future. Hence, it is essential that he be provided with the most appropriate and fitting security arrangement for him to continue his political career and as a mark of gratitude for the peace and hope that his actions brought to all Sri Lankans.

We, therefore, humbly appeal to the Sri Lankan Government to re-assign the Army Commando VIP security Unit to provide security to Mr Mahinda Rajapakse.  We also appeal to other friendly nations to prevail on the Sri Lankan government to restore his security to it’s former level in order to avert the political instability that may arise as a result of any planned or opportunistic incident that endangers Mr Rajapakse’s life.

    The excuse for removing army security for our great leader Mahinda is that even the puppet president and the PM have only police protection. The fact is the president and the PM are scared of the army as they know very well they cannot depend on army protection as they have betrayed our brave armed forces. Special task personnel are currently have no role to pay in the country, but police is needed every where in the country as the law and order situation is deteriorating rapidly.
