Sri Lankan air force declares general amnesty for deserters

The Sri Lankan air force declared a general amnesty for all deserters, reports the Sri Lankan Ministry of Defence.

However, the amnesty will only last for a few hours, with deserters who report to the air force headquarters in Colombo on 1 July between 0900 and 1500, allowed to legally discharge from service.

The amnesty will apply to all those who deserted the air force from 1 June 2009, just after the end of the armed conflict on the island, until 31 December 2014.
