President Maithripala Sirisena has given instructions to all ministry secretaries to fulfill their duties and responsibilities according to the laws of the country without any disruption, the Presidential Media Division (PMD) said today.

It said in a statement that the instructions were given at a special discussion held with all the Secretaries to Ministries under the patronage of President Maithripala Sirisena at the Presidential Secretariat this morning.

‘’The Court of Appeal on December 03, 2018 issued an interim injunction temporarily restraining the Prime Minister and his Cabinet of Ministers, who were appointed by the President in accordance with the Constitution, from functioning in their respective portfolios, and accordingly the President has given instructions to all the Secretaries of the Ministries to fulfill their respective duties and responsibilities according to the laws of the country continuously without any disruption’’ the statement added.

It said the President has already given the necessary orders to all state services, Tri-forces and the police to fulfill their duties and responsibilities with commitment towards the general public of the country and for the national security.

    Ministers will come and go. But the ministry secretaries work as usual.

    I think you are referring to the number of private secretary who are given SUV's etc. Mostly belonging to govt departments. But the secretary is a state employee. Note some worthless freak.

    Any one know who makes disruptions?

    JK Hatton Tuesday, 04 December 2018 03:27 PM

    A BIG SLAP on Sirisena face on rule of law of what it means by SC. Sirisena displayed unfit for the post of his education, capacity and background.

    Not Supreme Court. Its an interim decision by the Appeals court

    Valan Tuesday, 04 December 2018 03:32 PM

    Is he asking the secretaries to disregard the courts or asking them to disregard the ministers? The statement is confusing!

    Court restrain order (R/O) does not affect day to day operation of a ministry. Secretary to the ministry can function without a minister and screw the public just as well as a minister can. Its the ministers who received the R/O not the ministries.

    MS do your duty ASAP

    PAUL Tuesday, 04 December 2018 05:14 PM

    Before you give instructions to others you have to do your job properly without violating the country's supreme constitution.
