No military backing for Aava: Ruwan
There is no military backing for the ‘Aava ‘ group in Jaffna, but investigations are on to find out whether those who left the Army have joined it, State Defence Minister Ruwan Wijewardena said in Parliament yesterday.
He was responding to a question by Chief Opposition Whip and JVP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake under Standing Order 23 (2).
The state minister said one of the three persons arrested for their alleged involvement with ‘Aava’ was an Army deserter.
“It is clear that the Aava group is a motorcycle gang operating in the North. The group is harassing the people and involved in extortion. The Army does not want to maintain such a group. However, the statement of Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne is also not wrong as a former Army personnel who left the Army had worked with this group. We are now investigating to find out whether those who left the army have been working with this group,” he said.

Great; is the Military under the control of the wimpy Defence Minister or is it still under the control of former Defence strongmen?
Your comment on the spot, mate.
These guys drawing bi salaries and selling Luxury Car permits for millions of rupees, holding office of Defence Minister and Deputy defence Minister appear to be a pack of clowns.
The Army is controlled by the Strong Man of the previous regime. The law is controlled by Ven Gnanasara on whose public request, the Secretary of a Muslim Association has been arrested today.
This arrest of the Muslim Guy throws eggs of the face of the big boss, the Defence Minister.
AAVA is real, my dear citizens, it is remotely controlled.
This means the political figure, one who said there’s a Army backing proves false.
Now all can realize that, they open the mouth to tell lie’s to stay on power.
He ‘the one said so’, published many statements about previous regime.
Country is in SHIT because of this guy and the other one who ate hoppers.
