    And so the Army should. Why not? Only the guilty will object. They are Sri Lanka’s Security establishment and should know who is contesting any election

      The whole population should be identified by this Army Chief to trace any culprit!
      This is the think end of the wedge – for a background to Army take over?

    Not monitored? What about the army’s performance in the past on this issue? They not only monitored alleged enemies of the nation, but have maintained proxies to have them “disappeared” in casu eliminated without a trace. General Senanayake had better plead for its army members to be better monitored and start investigating the army’s past conduct during the war and beyond.
