A Fundamental Rights (FR) petition has been filed with the Supreme Court against the Chief Minister of the Easter Province, Naseer Ahamed.

The application was presented by attorney-at-law P. Liyanarachchi accusing the Chief Minister of violation of fundamental rights by acting in a disgraceful manner towards a navy officer and a school student. 

The 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, which was attended by US Ambassador Atul Keshap and the Governor of the Eastern Province, Austin Fernando.  

Footage showed the Chief Minister verbally abusing the Navy officer on stage at the event after accusing him of failing to understand protocol.
