Lawyers protest end up in brawl

12 December 2012 09:36 am - 26     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Two protest campaigns organised this morning by two groups of lawyers outside the Kalutara Court Complex, for and against the impeachment motion against Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake ended up in a brawl.

Both groups were lawyers of the Kalutara Court Complex. The brawl started after the group supporting the impeachment forcefully took away the placards displayed by those against the impeachment. (Sunil S.Thanthhriarachchi)

    mmm, this is clear that the lawyers too dont have a one side decision. How can we trust that these lawyers will give a fare and just judgment in court for the cases.
