THE ARMY DENIES SOCIAL MEDIA REPORTS ON ARMY COMMANDER'S ALLEGED PARTICIPATION IN A WEDDING

(Media Release)

It has been brought to our notice that a few doctored photographs with false and fabricated information have been sent viral by some elements, claiming that the Commander of the Army has attended the wedding of his sister's daughter at a Colombo Hotel just before the ban on weddings comes into effect on Tuesday (4).

The Army flatly denies those social media reports, published with doctored photos, attributed to the Commander's sister's daughters who are still schooling.

However, a person, believed to have placed this false social media blog was found later on correcting his wrong report.

The Army appeals to all segments of people in our society to act with responsibility at this decisive moment and keep off from spreading false information while offering maximum support to all stakeholders, engaged in the fight against this pandemic in our country.(Ends)
