"It has been observed that at times, opportunistic politicians, and some retired military officers as well as civil activists, while criticizing the reconciliation process carried out by the Government and the Army and appreciating the terrorists' activities, conduct lectures and meetings to damage the trust peace loving people in the North and East have placed in the government and the military and to poison their minds with hatred," the Army Commander has said in his communiqué, adding that the media has by now confirmed the identity of those persons.
The Army Commander recalling that the Sri Lanka Army lost a massive number of lives and many others were injured and disabled for life emphasized that the Sri Lanka Army made a great effort to end the thirty-years of war and bring the freedom to the country.
