Lanka court bars Rajapakse from acting as PM

Dec 03, 2018 18:10 IST

A Sri Lanka court has suspended Mahinda Rajapakse's powers as prime minister and ruled that his cabinet could not function until its legitimacy was established, the AFP reported. The court said ‘irreparable damage’ could be done to Sri Lanka if Rajapakse, whose controversial appointment as prime minister sparked a political crisis, was allowed to remain as head of government.
