I was passing by the Sri Lanka Ports Authority and noted that a banner was hung with a very unusual and controversial content ,It carried a large photograph of Nasheed –the ousted ex president of Maldives and a heading which say “ The way Port Minister acts ( bearing in mind about the country ) when Hambantota Port is handed over to Chinese is excellent “ .-Nasheed !!
I was wondering whether a powerful minister in the current government which is maintaining a cordial relationship with current Maldivian government headed by Gayoom ,who is on a Collison course with Nasheed ,is allowed to have such a banner in the port under his control ?
Nasheed may have been an elected president who was convicted of an offence as stated below
The former President was sentenced to serve 13 years in jail after having being proven guilty of illegally detaining Criminal Court Judge Abdullah Mohamed in Girifushi island by using MNDF officials.
In this backdrop name of such a convicted ex-president’s should not be used by any Sri Lankan minister which may undermine the cordial relationship between the two governments.
