    He started at St.Joseph's College and did final 2 years at Royal.... I am sure that the OBU's of both colleges will be bending back wards to felicitate this patriotic son of Sri Lanka... who obviously did not "Learn of Books and Men !!!!

    But it also must not be forgotten be that he is also a lawyer !!!!!
    NM, Colvin and others must be having nightmares in their graves..

    Well said. Interestingly , he was the ' advisor ' at the time the plot was being hatched to oust the previous CJ . Talk of ethics and self respect ............

    Well the former Cheif Justice had lot to answer and had breached the law. Impeachment is common in US and the west is trying to point their fingers. Lets not forget the Govt came into power with a big majority and it is democratic.

    That is because she is a decent and upstanding person which is not something that can be said of anyone in the present Govt.

    Lawyers will be back to work tomorrow. Not much different from private bus conductors. Mohan Peiris is elected constitutionally now everyone should move forwards.

    Is it very similar to nullifying PSC move for impeachment.

    Mohan peris's wife will now be appointed as a chairman of a state enterprise and will be allowed to be corrupt. Then the file will be in Mara's closest for reference.
