Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake took oaths as the first female Chief Justice of Sri Lanka before President Mahinda Rajapaksa a short while ago.

Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake obtained her Bachelor of Laws degree from the Faculty of Law of the University of Colombo in 1980, and her PhD from the University of London in 1986. After admission to the bar, she worked as an Attorney at Law at the Supreme Court of Sri Lanka, and as a lecturer at the University of Colombo. She was later appointed Dean of the Faculty of Law, and also served on the Judicial Service Commission of Sri Lanka.

Dr. Bandaranayake was first appointed to the Supreme Court of Sri Lanka in 1996, becoming the first female Supreme Court Judge in Sri Lanka. Through the next 14 years, she served as the acting Chief Justice during a number of occasions. Following the mandatory retirement of Justice Asoka de Silva in May 2011, Dr. Bandaranayake was sworn in as Chief Justice of Sri Lanka before President Mahinda Rajapaksa. (Source : Wikipedia)

    Does anyone know why Asoka was sent on mandatory retirement?

    sajith Wednesday, 18 May 2011 05:41 AM

    Because there is a maximum age limit for gov service. Not like your UNP leader

    hrm Wednesday, 18 May 2011 06:17 AM

    well said

    samosa Wednesday, 18 May 2011 06:15 AM

    Cheif justice has nothing to do with UNP leader. UNP leader was chosen by people, he will retire if people don't chose him.

    Saman Wednesday, 18 May 2011 06:24 AM

    was there any max age limit for UPFA leaders?
    then how about Sirimawo Bandaranayake?
