Ministry of crab illegal?

The government has reportedly said that the plush restaurant operated by Sri Lankan cricketers Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardena under the name ‘Ministry of Crab’ is illegal.

According to The Sunday Times, President’s Secretary Lalith Weeratunga had told newspaper Editors in Colombo today that the restaurant was originally registered as “The Crab Corporation” but later changed its name after being launched at the food court of the Old Dutch Hospital.

President Mahinda Rajapaksa had told the Editors that the media was already criticising him for having more than fifty ministries, “and now there is a Ministry of Crabs” also.

Weeratunga has then said that according to the Registrar of Companies of the Western Province of Sri Lanka, operating the restaurant under the name “Ministry of Crab’ is illegal.
