AG’s advice to be sought over refusal to raise natl. flag

The attorney general is to be consulted tomorrow (20) for advice with regard to northern province education minister S. Sarveshwaran, who had refused to raise the national flag at a school event, provincial governor Reginald Cooray said.

Sarveshwaran’s refusal amounts to a violation of the country’s constitution and legal action should be taken against him, according to various quarters.
