Sri Lanka Army plans to de-list around 55,000 army deserters under a special program initiated by the Army to de-list deserters who had no connection to crimes, Military spokesman, Brigadier Nihal Hapuarachchi has said.
All these will get jobs at new security firm privately owned by GOTA to take care of security all the government institutions, universities, factories.......etc. May be a well planed over roll security blanket to distribute drugs without any interruption? who knows? I do not know for sure that side.
Now, I was right again.
Gotabaya s Private Army Rakna Aracksha Lanka Ltd (RALL) is to Capture Somali Pirates?
by Gunadeera Rajakaruna April 17, 2012, Colombo
What is RALL and who owns it?
The share holders of RALL are Gotabaya Rajapaksa, Defence Secretary is the Chairman of this private company.(major share holder), other two share holders are former Attorney General and present adviser to the GOSL Mr. Mohan Peiris PC, and Mr. Jayantha Wickramasinghe, CEO/MD Lanka Logistics.
The board of Directors of RALL are, Mr. Mahinda Saliya (Budget Dept - Treasury), Udeni Wickramasinghe (Additional Secretary - Technical, Defense Ministry), Siripala Hettiarachchi (Additional Secretary - Defense Ministry), Mrs.Leisha Chandrasena (company secretary). These are civilians unknown to many Sri Lankans who have never managed a security establishment, or even held a gun or even heard the firing of a gun during the LTTE war.
How costly is to engage RALL?
According to Cabinet Minister & the Chief Government Whip Hon. Dinesh Gunawardena, answering a question from the DNA- MP Hon. Anura Kumara Dissanayake, in the Parliament stated that RALL has earned Rs.940.5 million approximately, during the last F/Y. He further stated that a security guard employed by RALL earns Rs.21, 500 per month on a 12 hour shift in very risky areas without any OT. There are nearly 2520 employees working for RALL and if an employee is paid the above salary/wages and with all other expenses, including establishment charges and administration cost, Directors fees, uniforms and transport, a round figure of Rs.100,000 per years (exaggerated amount) can be assumed as the expenses in employing the 2520 employees. The total cost will be approximately Rs 250 million per year. If so who gets the balance Rs 670 million earned by employing RALL security personals. How much Gotabaya Rajapaksa, should have earned, when he worked prior to running away from the Army in 1991 as a Lt Colonel, or as a Stores A/manager for a 7/11 shop in USA before joining Loyola College as an Computer Administrator ?
