Colombo: Sri Lankan actors will now need permission of Defence Ministry for donning military uniform while portraying role of a security person in movies, television serials and other media.

The move aims to standardise the use of military uniforms, the ministry said in a statement.

"The rules and regulations regarding the use of the uniform have been already imposed," the Defence Ministry said.

"Any person or organisation going against this procedure would be liable to be prosecuted," it added.

However, the use of visuals in news telecasts of security personnel in uniform will be allowed.
