The Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) would take all the weapons belonging to the Avant-Garde Maritime Services (Pvt.) Limited to its possession starting today, speaking to Hiru news Sri Lanka Navy Spokesperson (SLN) Captain Akram Alavi stated.
He stated the move comes after the decision of President Maithripala Sirisena to hand over the operations of the Avant Garde to the Sri Lanka Navy.
“At the moment, the weapons are being brought to SLNS Dakshina at the Galle Harbour. The process may take a couple of days to complete,” adding further he stated.
