Army urges public not to be misled by false reports

The Army has urged the public not to be misled by false reports claiming there is an attempt by the military to launch an assault on protesters in Colombo.

Issuing a statement, the Army said that it has been brought to their notice that certain interested parties were giving misleading and concocted interpretations and propagating baseless, unfounded and provocative allegations.

The Army said that such allegations aim to discredit and tarnish the image of the Army as well as its dedicated members serving across the island.

“As evident in the past few days, different interested elements and groups with vested interests are poised to insult the troops and speculate alleging that the troops are about to ” cause violence”, ” under training to assault”, etc, which are completely false, fabricated and baseless. As clearly seen, not a single trooper has to-date got involved in any of those tense situations,” the Army statement reads.

The Army noted that troops have not interfered with any of the peaceful protesters or nor have they acted against the interests of the State as disciplined members of an organization which brought peace to this country through immense and invaluable sacrifices.

The Army said that these malicious reports, largely spread on the internet, also speaks of corruption in a hospital.

According ti the Army media unit, the allegations of corruption in a hospital is a ridiculous allegation, is appalling and irrational.

“The Army very strongly and categorically deny those sinister moves and flatly reject those attempts, meant to bring disrepute to this organization and simultaneously urge the civic onscious and right minded citizens of this country to place the full confidence in the troops as it has been done in the past because the troops remain more trained, professionally- qualified and well-suited to take on any security challenge in this scenario, only if the Police seeks assistance.

Similarly, the Army said that well-formulated and structured training modules in all camps continue unabated as part of the military training and is nothing new or a preparation for violence. (Colombo Gazette)
