Lalin’s Column: Aid to the civil power- Weliweriya – The tragedy, an inquiry and hysteria

If the army has erred, it will be the first to admit it- and take restorative action - however hard that may be on any errant members. “Soldiers should be ready to uphold the rights of others before claiming their own”. (General Sir Richard Dannet).
