The Attorney General yesterday explained that the Parliamentary Select Committee proceeding against the Chief Justice was not a trial but only a disciplinary procedure.

Attorney General Palitha Fernando made this submission before the Supreme Court in the hearing of the reference made by the Court of Appeal for its constitutional interpretation relating to the procedure of impeachment against a Judge.

    Mr. AG. What is the indiscipline that the CJ is accused of????

    A disciplinary inquiry should be held against the PSC members who behaved like street people.

    And this is the example our Rulers set the Voters!!!

    Oh, this guy is occupying the seat of Mohan Peries?

    With political appointments, the state ignored the Education, Experience and skilfulness.

    And the result is being felt all over: This guy does not know what he is bluffing about.

    OOh.. Did you mean that some parliamentarians who are at the top achilons of indiscipline conducted a disciplinary inquiry aginst the 3rd citizen of the country? Rediculous.. isn't it?

    Well, Palitha Fernando is the most senior person at AG's department.
    Unlike CJ, who was appointed to Supreme Court by former President Chandrika on the recommendation of Prof GL without Shirani having any judicial experience.
