Impeachment: Ensure principle of Natural justice adhered to – Prof Carlo Fonseka/SLMC

by

The Sri Lanka Medical Council says the government should ensure that citizens are entitled to be judged in accordance with the principles of natural justice.
President of the SLMC, Prof Carlo Fonseka, in a letter addressed to President Mahinda Rajapaksa says: “At its monthly statutory meeting held on 21st December 2012, the Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC) noted with appreciation Your Excellency’s reported intention to appoint a panel to review the procedure and report of the Parliamentary Select Committee which inquired into the impeachment notion against the Chief Justice.

The SLMC resolved to communicate to Your Excellency its consensual view that the composition, integrity and competence of the proposed panel should be unquestionable. We believe that in our society, which is committed to the rule of law, we must ensure that citizens are entitled to be judged in accordance with the principles of natural justice.”
