War Veterans' Dept. to be established

State Defence Minister Ruwan Wijewardene has said that a War Veterans' Department would be established next year.

Speaking to reporters, he said that the Department would be similar to the War Veterans' Department of the US.

Noting that this measure would prevent incidents similar to when when a group of disabled soldiers clashed with the police in front of the Presidential secretariat recently, the minister said that the necessary legal framework is being drafted.
