Security withdrawn for Sri Lanka’s finance minister as crisis continues

Sri Lanka’s finance minister claimed that his security detail had been withdrawn this morning, as the political turmoil on the island continued.

Finance minister Mangala Samaraweera, a staunch support of Ranil Wickremesinghe, tweeted,

“President @MaithripalaS strikes again....My security was withdrawn. Aiyo...... Sirisena !!!!! #CoupLK #ConstitutionalCrisisSriLanka #illegalgovernment #FakePM #lka”.

The latest incident comes after security was reportedly withdrawn for Wickremesinghe, after Mahinda Rajapaksa was appointed to the post of Sri Lankan prime minister.
