Ruwan Wijewardena refers to false publicity on his security

Defence State Minister Ruwan Wijewardena has said that some are giving false publicity that unnecessary security was used during his tour of Minuwangoda to examine the security situation in the area. The Minister said that he toured the area on the 15th of this month as Acting Defence Minister in the area without using additional security vehicles.
Issuing a statement in this respect, Ruwan Wijewardena said that from the frames published through the media, all the defence officials and the trucks seen had not arrived on behalf of his private security. He said that there were vehicles of higher officials of the Armed Forces and the Police that had arrived on behalf of the security of the area and vehicles which accompanied them.
As State Minister of Defence he had received 10 security officers and two accompanying vehicles. But the Minister said that he arrived in the Minuwangoda town only with two defence trucks. The Minister said that video footage and photographs secured during his tour had been taken during group observation visit with security officials.
The Minister added that from the past he had been using only his private vehicles.
