The Bar Association of Sri Lanka (BASL) at a special meeting today decided that the entire Executive Committee would appear before the Colombo Magistrate’s Court to defend Chief Justice 43, Shirani Bandaranayake who is accused of non- declaration of assets.

At a special Executive Committee meeting yesterday (which had been summoned to discuss the incidents that occurred in Weliweriya on August 4),  the BASL had strongly condemned the action filed by the Commission to Investigate into Allegation of Bribery or Corruption over the bank accounts maintained by Mrs. Bandaranayake.

“We have decided that all the Executive Committee Members of BASL will defend CJ Bandaranayake when she appears before Court on September 16,” BASL President, Upul Jayasuriya told Daily Mirror.

The Executive Committee of the BASL comprises 30 members. CJ Bandaranayake faces charges relating to the alleged non-declaration of assets; and Colombo Magistrate Court issued notice on her in this regard on July 29. She was noticed relating to the non-declaration of assets in the annual declaration that every elected and public official is bound to submit. (Susitha R. Fernando)

    Hats off to you. You guys are doing a marvelous job and if not for you the judiciary, an arm of the executive will play havoc. Why don't you take up the issue pertaining to Weliweriya and fix the government on this score too.
