The action of the government via the Impeachment Motion Impeachment Motion is a violation of the principles of natural justice, said the Sri Lanka’s Judges’ Associations yesterday (03), calling for an impartial and transparent inquiryinto the allegations leveled against Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake. In no country in the entire world does the same party which makes the accusations also take a decision regarding the accusations, states the release issued following a crucial meeting attended by the District Judges and Magistrates .
‘Is this the example the country is showing the world regarding the removal of the Chief Justice’, it questioned.

They requested media institutions to desist insulting the country’s judiciary.
More than 30 judges speaking at this historical meeting was noteworthy.
The meeting was held from 3- 5.30 pm
