A Sri Lankan Brigadier convicted of motioning death threat

Sri Lankan Brigadier Priyanka Fernando

Westminster Magistrate’s Court has found Sri Lankan Brigadier Priyanka Fernando guilty of violating section 44 A of the Public Order Act by motioning death threats to Tamil protestors in London last year.

Chief Magistrate Emma Arbuthnot delivered the order. The Court upheld a previous ruling that Brigadier Fernando "is not protected by diplomatic immunity".

In her order, Magistrate Emma Arbuthnot said:

“I have no doubt that the cut-throat gestures were made on 4th February 2018. I have no doubt he intended to cause at the least alarm. They were purposeful gestures, made as the Brigadier was staring at these protesters. The Brigadier was a senior officer in uniform wearing medals. Unlike the other senior officer there, his body language appeared to be arrogant and intimidating. There were three gestures and not just one. In the context of the relationship between Sri Lanka and Tamil Elam protesters he must have known that it would have been alarming at the very least to the protesters who saw him do this."
