July 09, Colombo: Commander of Sri Lanka Army Lieutenant General Mahesh Senanayake has instructed the army not to allow any person, who acts in a manner that obstructs the process of reconciliation, in to the army camps.

The Army Commander has given instructions to bar people who deliver speeches damaging the trust the people of the North and the East have placed in the Government and the military.

The Commander in a communiqué has instructed the army not to take part, support or sponsor any event participated by the people disrupting reconciliation process.

Army Commander's communiqué says that the Sri Lanka Army should completely condemn any act of obstructing reconciliation.

"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.
