Brigadier Priyanka Fernando, who was convicted by a British court recently, has been appointed as the new director of Army's Property and Housing Board, reports said.
Fernando has started his new post at the newly built Army Headquarters, according to Army.
Brigadier Fernando served as defence counsel to the British High Commission. He during his tenure was accused to have posed a threatening fist to a group of Tamil Diaspora protesters.
A complaint was lodged before the British Court over his alleged actions and Fernando was pronounced guilty.
Upon dismissal, Fernando was recalled to Sri Lanka and served as Commander of Ranaviru Resource Center, Wattala.
