The Tri-Forces have decided not to attend any functions attended by the Eastern Province Chief Minister Nazeer Ahamed and has prohibited him from entering any of their camps.

 

Meanwhile the Ministry of Defence (MOD) has briefed President Maithripala Sirisena on the incident involving Eastern Province Chief Minister Nazeer Ahamed.

 

The Eastern Province Chief Minister had verbally abused a Navy officer in public at an event held last week during the opening ceremony of a science lab and computer unit at the Sampur Maha Vidyalayam.

 

US Ambassador Atul Keshap was a guest at the event while Governor of the Eastern Province, Austin Fernando was the Chief Guest.
