The Court of Appeal today contemplated that if those who dishonoured the Court by cheering inside the courtroom soon after the decision on Gotabhaya Rajapaksa was declared are found to be legal professionals of the bar, they would have to face legal repercussions in due course.

It was seen soon after the order on the writ petition was delivered by Court of Appeal President Justice Yasantha Kodagoda, part of the audience in the courtroom reacted to the decision by cheering. This sudden reaction caught the attention of Justice Kodagoda and he said if lawyers were among those who cheered, then they will be dealt with the necessary laws over their behaviour as professionals.

However, it was also seen that Romesh de Silva PC was very quick to signal the audience not to disturb and dishonour the court. He also apologised to the Bench for the behaviour of some persons and highly deplored that behaviour. (Shehan Chamika Silva)
