The notification regarding this extension was circulated on   3rd July under ‘ Navy General 340’ among all Naval officers by the Navy headquarters . That notification was made by the Navy commander.

Anybody in the navy who is in  the temporary cadre  must  be made permanent within a stipulated period . Or else he shall be sent on retirement . But,  if an extension is given in this manner , he need to retire ceases.

It is reported, the president by this extension  has extended the service of temporary Commodore Dassanayake for the second time.  This extension is valid for another year from 2018-07-01.

The usual  procedure and practice that ought to be   followed when a Navy officer is charged with a criminal offence have not been adhered to in the case of commodore Dassanayake .
