Only President Could Have Banned Eastern Province CM From Military Camps: PM

Several ministers have requested the Prime Minister to inquire if the military was attempting to incite communal differences using the incident involving the Eastern Province Chief Minister and a naval officer, at a time when the President was not in the country.

The Prime Minister responded by saying that only the President could have banned the CM from entering military camps.

Eastern Province CM Nazeer Ahamad publicly reprimanded a naval officer at Sampur Maha Vidyalaya on May 20.

As a result, the tri-forces decided to ban the CM from entering military camps and also to boycott any events attended by him.

However, the tri-forces later revoked the ban it imposed on the CM. Ahamed visited the Trincomalee naval base for lunch yesterday.
