The new Government has taken steps to withdraw some vehicles attached to the motorcade of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s security detail, a source told Ada Derana.
The source added that the ex-President had to hand over several state owned vehicles upon a directive issued by the Defence Secretary.
However, when contacted police Spokesperson ASP Ruwan Gunasekara said that the privileges granted to the President are not the same after he (president) is defeated or retires from his office and said “This might be the reason why the vehicles were withdrawn.”
