A A A

The fundamental rights petition filed by the Centre for Policy Alternative (CPA) challenging the appointment of Mohan Peiris as Chief Justice was put off by the Supreme Court on a request made by the petitioner for a full bench

The petitioner in a motion filed in Court stated that in view of Chief Justice Mohan Peiris, being cited as a respondent he was not in a position to nominate a Bench to hear the petition and therefore wanted it to be heard by a bench comprising all Supreme Court Judges.

The case will be taken up on March 5.

    I would be surprised if the matter would go beyond the Leave to Proceed stage!

    would it be possible to call all past sc judges to be on it as well. these people will have less to lose or gain and will help in a fairer hearing via DM Android App

    It appears to me as a good appeal since the person concerned is the new appointee is the CJ.

    Good idea. Practicable,needful,cost effective and easier than enlarging the Cabinet.

    It is very simple , it is by the judiciary, if you don't know this simple fact you are not suitable for forum like this.

    Court Room 502 can accomodate all the SC judges.

    Every citizen of this country has rights to regulate the judiciary in terms of justice. Three is no question of dictating terms. Please dont try to mislead.
