The Bar Association of Sri Lanka (BASL), during their special general meeting this morning passed three resolutions including one to refrain from officially welcoming any new Chief Justice appointed on the basis of a vacancy created by wrongful impeachment, BASL President Wijeyadasa Rajapaksa said.

Speaking at a media briefing held following the BASL meeting this morning, Mr. Rajapakshe also announced the two other resolutions, which he stated were unanimously passed during the meeting held today.

Among the other two resolutions passed at the BASL meeting today are:
•    In consideration of the  speech made by the President on December 11, in which he stated the Parliamentary Special Committee report of the impeachment against the Chief Justice will be evaluated through an independent committee, we  urge the President to reconsider the impeachment motion

•    In the event where the President, the Speaker or the MPs who are signatories to the impeachment motion decide to proceed with it further, we urge them to take necessary measures to formulate and enact procedural laws with regard to the removal of judges of the superior courts while guaranteeing a fair trial that adheres to principals of natural justice before further proceedings are taken on the said impeachment.

We feel so relieved that for once in this decade truth and justice have been delivered. Keep fighting! YOu will be amased at the majority that will support you -

    Thomas Monday, 17 December 2012 03:48 AM

    In Sri Lanka, there are people with democratic views and wish to stand for Justice. It is Praiseworthy that BSAL stood by the natural justice and upheld the constitution of the land. Cheers

    The opposition, many professions and media cannot come and support due to the fact that restrictions and injunctions have been brought earlier, time to restore the rights of employees and media .

    Kinithullah M.H Monday, 17 December 2012 12:07 PM

    Well said Anura. Wijedasa is not fit to be a lawyer. He is just a corrupt and useless politician.

    Citizen Saturday, 15 December 2012 12:00 AM

    No way our goons oops (government) will have their way

    MaC Saturday, 15 December 2012 08:26 AM

    Does this mean new justice will be accepted by BASL ?
    Is it relevant now to pass these kinds of resolutions even before impeachment is brought in.
    It looks like BASL making the life easy for Government .

    law is clear. CJ was found guilty. why not send her home ? oh... president have a doubt on the select committee report ? then the guilty verdict must be set aside.

    Kinithullah M.H Monday, 17 December 2012 04:45 AM

    These guys are idiots, behaving like monkeys. They have passed a resolution about a new CJ, even before a new CJ is appointed.
    If a new CJ is appointed, these idiots cannot do anything about it. The new CJ will not require BASL's welcome or ther "mal maala".
    This is just a political game, trying to score political points.

    anura Monday, 17 December 2012 04:47 AM

    Wijedasa Rajapaksa has hijacked the bar association. Wijedasa had brought politics to this professional body of lawyers and honest lawyers have no say now .Shame on you Wijedasa. Resign immediately without ruining this professional body.

    Namal PavithraN Saturday, 15 December 2012 09:14 AM

    No Monkey business this time around for the Government Juntas, enough is enough. ( we are very upset the way those PSC people (allegedly have) treated the CJ)
