Audio: It was a media show by stooges: Wijeydasa

18 December 2012 07:32 am - 26     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Sri Lanka Bar Association (BASL) President Wijeydasa Rajapakshe today rejected allegations made by certain groups that the resolutions passed at the BASL Special General Meeting were done in an arbitrary manner. He said those who were making these allegations were “stooges” and were completely “biased” in what they say.

“The Vice President who tendered her resignation is prejudiced because her husband is the Bribery Commission investigating officer. If she had any kind of decency she should have not been a member of any proceedings against the Chief Justice. Her husband JayanthaWickremaratne is the officer investigating the cases against the Chief Justice’s husband and therefore she was never impartial,” he said.

When asked about the divisive nature of the meeting, Mr. Rajapakshe said the meeting was conducted in an impartial manner and certain people with vested interests, put on a show for the media.

He said he welcomed the resignation of the Vice President, and pointed out that the Bar Association would not be hampered by such a resignation.(Hafeel Farisz)

    Quote of the Day "Unanimous decisions are not put to vote" -Wijayadasa Rajapakse. How do you know it was unanimous if not put to vote? If no noe votes against then it becomes unanimous and not because Wijayadasa calls it unanimous and calls those opposed a media circus.

    Wijedada deserves a senior ministerial post when the Chief Justice becomes the president of the country!

    samba Tuesday, 18 December 2012 09:37 AM

    I have seen you always stood on the right side. So I hope you will keep doing the same.

    Chinthaka de Vas Tuesday, 18 December 2012 09:31 AM

    Wije, if the Vice president was biased because her husband was looking into the case against the CJ, the reverse is also true. Cj's supporters too would be biased against those who investigate the case against the CJ and those connected to them.
    If theirs was a media show, most of what you do including "pol gaseema" (dashing coconuts) is a media show too.
    You have no personality. You look a worm.

    N. Bandara Tuesday, 18 December 2012 09:29 AM

    what about your income? Soon they will investigate that.

    Imran Hussein Tuesday, 18 December 2012 09:29 AM

    A mere 200 out of 3000 plus with a handful of placards cannot do a thing. Dont worry, MR is smelling defeat ,therefore certainly there will be reactions. Brush it off..

    Sunny Tuesday, 18 December 2012 09:14 AM

    CJ is the one acting for Media and not acting as CJ

    Mervin Ayya Tuesday, 18 December 2012 09:12 AM

    Very clear.

    Ramzeel Tuesday, 18 December 2012 09:14 AM

    Yes it was, there was one newly politically appointed PC amongst them and two more ministers who were doing the laundry service

    Thomas Tuesday, 18 December 2012 08:30 AM

    Well said and done, Mr.Wijedasa. We need people of your caliber to run this country

    mithraya Tuesday, 18 December 2012 08:24 AM

    Mr Wijedasa, Typical "Chinthnaya Strategy " Media Drama - Based on "Nationalistic" theme......( Wont be surprised....if they get "videshiya Balwage" too to hood-wink the ordinary Masses)

    C. Seneveratne Tuesday, 18 December 2012 07:57 AM
