Sri Lanka Army Temporarily Discharges Nearly 10,000 AWOL Personnel During General Amnesty

The Sri Lanka Army has announced the temporary discharge of nearly 10,000 army personnel who were absent without leave (AWOL) from their Regimental Centers during the ongoing general amnesty period.

Commencing on April 20 and extending until May 20, 2024, the general amnesty period was established to address the issue of absenteeism among Army personnel.

During the first two weeks of this amnesty period, spanning from April 20 to May 4, 2024, a total of 9,735 individuals who were absent without leave since December 31, 2023, and prior, have been temporarily discharged from their Regimental Centers, the Sri Lanka Army disclosed.

Furthermore, the Sri Lanka Army has coordinated arrangements for 35 personnel currently overseas and absent without leave to be officially discharged from the Army within the framework of this amnesty period.

This initiative underscores the Army’s commitment to enforcing discipline while affording personnel an opportunity to rectify their absence status through established protocols and amnesty provisions.
