Appearing on the Newsline program with Faraz Shauketaly on Monday morning, Defence Secretary Karunasena Hettiarachchi commented on the Aava group.

Faraz Shauketaly :

“Sri Lankan government has always maintained that there is a real need to maintain the level of security in the North, in the former conflict areas. Having done that, how come these people manage to raise their head?”

Defence Secretary Karunasena Hettiarachchi :

You know these (are) two different things you are trying to put together and ask this question. But ultimately in the society it looks as you asked this question. But our responsibility is to see the overall national security. And day-to-day actions like these is the responsibility of the Police Department to look into…. I think the police are quite active and they are taking actions now. They have prosecuted some of these criminals both in Vanni district as well as in Jaffna district.
