CJ should resign; I will withdraw the Impeachment – A call from President

by

The President has called the Chief Justice’s lawyers Neelakandan & Neelakandan and had stated that the Chief Justice must resign.
He had said he read the impeachment motion only at that moment and had said the allegations are not adequate to bring in an impeachment motion. However, as an investigation process has already commenced there is no possibility to go back on it and had asked the lawyers to request the Chief Justice to resign.
If the Chief Justice decides to resign measures could be taken to withdraw the cases against her and her husband the President had told CJ’s lawyers.
Recently, mudslinging campaigns were carried out and slanderous posters were put up demanding the CJ to resign while agitations led by Minister Mervin Silva called for her resignation.
