* Sri Lanka's Ambassador to Italy summoned back
Tue, Feb 19, 2013, 10:29 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 19, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Ambassador to Italy Asitha Perera has been recalled to the island before he finished his term, diplomatic sources said.

A group of Sri Lankans led by Buddhist monks held a protest before the Sri Lanka Embassy in Rome demanding the removal of the Ambassador Asith Perera.

Liberal Party member Asitha Perera was appointed as Ambassador to Italy in November 2011. He was accredited to Greece, Cyprus, Malta and Albania.

He was a former MP elected in September 1994 through an alliance the Liberal Party had with the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress led then by the legendary M H M Ashraff.

Rajiva Wijesinghe, the leader of the Liberal Party and MP of Sri Lanka ruling coalition also has lost confidence of the government since he criticized the impeachment of Chief Justice Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake.
