Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake announced in open Court that she will no longer hear cases related to the Ceylinco group of companies.

The Chief Justice stated that she had presided over the bench hearing cases related to Golden Key and Sriram companies of the Ceylonco group on the request of the parties but those cases would be taken up before a different bench.

    I am very sorry to say that many of you people who had commented have no idea how this matter was handled by the earlier bench, and how much hope and sanity CJ brought to this matter in Court!!!!!!

    Did all the damage, now stepping down. If you were an honourable lady you would have re-remanded the culprits since they have violated bail conditions. JUSTICE Sri Lankan style!!

    Dear Shirani
    What if no allegations were made against you. Then you would have decided all the Ceylinco cases in your favour. Too late, any way slowly your'e admitting your guilt.

    Sanje Monday, 12 November 2012 06:26 AM

    Too Late CJ. you would have done this long time ago.... Absolutely too late.

    Surain Monday, 12 November 2012 10:19 AM

    Vishali Monday, 12 November 2012 09:08 AM

    She herself has accepted her guilt.

    Cobbler Monday, 12 November 2012 09:02 AM

    MP Monday, 12 November 2012 08:55 AM
