Surely & sadly she will be prosecuted for at least 1 out of 14 of these charges.

The motion was signed by 117 parliament members and it's pity to know how many out of that really have clear hands?

Did anyone pay special attention to point number 5 ( Husband case ) . This seems to be the longest complaint ;-)

Also what is point number 6 exactly?

We hear many politicians building of houses and only parts of them cost far more than the whole house mentioned here. Hmm...

I saw some foriegn countries raising concern about this impeachment again. Regularly sending negative signals is not a good thing if we want to go ahead as a forth right country.

From the inception that I should mention that She is No Angel.
But on this occasion, people should support her not to strengthen her but for a bigger and better cause.
To get rid of the biggest evil and then deal with her later when the biggest issue is taken care of first.
The cleaning up process should start, not from the bottom upwards but the other way.
That would send a very clear message to anyone of thinking of such activities in the future.
Are we capable and do we have the mechanism to do that?
I am sceptical (when reading some of the comments post here by so-called Educated lot Shocked ) but I have not given up yet. Cool

When any government do good things we need to praise & give the credit the government but if they do something that not nice, why should you still accept it for sake of you are a support of the government.

However its disgraceful to see that our MPs can decide the destiny of the CJ.

Ok agree that’s the only option the government has ( to get rid of CJ) but why all these things all of a sudden? Is it because government noticed that she has been doing inappropriate things? Or simply because she didn’t agree with the government?

Surely some of these MPs have not got a clue what they had signed for?

If someone gives a different view, he will be categorised as a person with a hidden agenda..! This is the typical mentality of Sri Lankans in the past, present and definitely in the future.

Could you please mention even a single post where I support government when they are not nice ? If you could then produce them otherwise please do not critisize others with your own thoughts.

But if this unfortunate things continue there may be a VERY dangerous ALTERNATIVE

Next generation will blame all of us

This country lost Several opportunities
1. Mismanagement KORIAN BOOM in 1950s
2. Mismanagement of economy after introduction of free market policies 1980s

And now mismanagement of whole system after defeating PRBAKARAN

And misuse war VICTORY mainly for personal gains after 2009

Well........let me clear few things.

here Yes I did mention the word "You" but it's not for whitebull. YOU means the whoever blindly follow any government. Clearly YOU means the the majority of Sri Lankans. I feel sad to see how easily Sri Lankans can be mislead. Some Sri Lankans reportedly cast their prestige votes to the same corrupted bunch of politicos. The best part is these people dont get a single benefit from their local MPs..

So my sincere apology if I hurt you for a second. However as you said if the hat suits, its up to you to decide wear it or not.

@Whitebull wrote:

There are two words we overly & incorrectly use in this forum
Manipulation & Hidden agenda.

Well.. If I don't like someone's comment the best I do is just ignore it. I hardly criticise any member of this forum. Unless someone so aggressively blast on another one or someone seriously give false statement, I would not react ( I prefer to send private msg n say what he said is a bit too much).

All other cases I just give my point and its up to the other party to accept or not.

Therefore without a shadow of a doubt I can turn down your accusation. so this time the hat does not suit me.

Whitebull, I'm trying to believe this is a simple misunderstanding of us.! I know you are a worthy and a knowledgeable member.

GL

In past, I did like carry on arguing with some members (by face or counter attacks).

Now honestly I dont have time.

Three out of five charges against CJ proven

Leader of the House and member of the Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC), Minister Nimal Siripala De Silva says three out of five charges (1,4,5) against Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake have been proven at the PSC inquiry held on the impeachment.

Speaking in parliament today, Minister De Silva had stated the CJ has been proven guilty of the following three charges against her: the issue concerning the Trillium property, failing to declare certain bank assets and liabilities and being biased against legal action initiated against her husband at the Magistrate's Court of Colombo in connection with the offences regarding acts of bribery and/or corruption under the Commission to Investigate into Allegations of Bribery or Corruption Act.

These 3 items are not strong enough for an impeachment. If so , almost all high power people will be much more guilty of charges like this.

It is in best interest of the people involved to find stronger facts for this impeachment else this will certainly look like "revenge" to many.

Washington, D.C. 08 December (Asiantribune.com):

The United States for the second time within a month has reiterated its deep concern of the impeachment of Sri Lanka's Chief Justice Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake.

The State Department deputy spokesperson Mark C. Toner on Friday, 7 December at the daily press briefing in Washington described the impeachment process as "latest developments are part of a disturbing deterioration of democratic norms in Sri Lanka."
Following is the full text of Mr. Toner's statement:

"The United States remains deeply concerned about actions surrounding the ongoing impeachment trial of Sri Lankan Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake. As Embassy Colombo’s statement noted earlier today, we urge the Government of Sri Lanka to guarantee due process, and to ensure that all investigations are conducted transparently and in accordance with the rule of law.

"These latest developments are part of a disturbing deterioration of democratic norms in Sri Lanka, including infringement on the independence of the judiciary. The United States, along with our partners in the international community, continues to urge Sri Lanka to uphold the rule of law and democratic governance and to continue to address outstanding accountability and reconciliation issues."

The November 9 The New York Times, reporting about the impeachment motion against Sri Lanka's Chief Justice, gave enough fodder to the Subcommittee on South Asian Affairs of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee detrimental to the image of Sri Lanka.

The committee is headed by the Sri Lanka basher Democratic Senator Robert P. Casey who last July said at the confirmation hearing of Ambassador-designate Michele Sison that the "Sinhalese won the war when government military forces defeated the separatist Tamil Tigers in May 2009."

The Asian Tribune earlier reported that an intern working for the Casey committee who is assigned to maintain all reports, news items and statements of outsiders about Sri Lanka has already taken the clip of the New York Times news report captioned 'Sri Lanka’s Parliament Tries to Impeach Chief Justice' to file in a folder in the computer for the subcommittee's later use.

An internship with the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, mostly graduate students, work on issues of foreign policy, legislative and political process, and the senate recruits those who possess excellent writing skills, attention to detail and the ability to multitask. Intern responsibilities range from attending meetings on and off the Congress, to drafting memos, tracking legislation and conducting research projects, and they last for a semester or full time so that they earn credits for their graduate studies.

The clipping the intern took from the November 9 report of the New York Times is very interesting. More than reporting that an impeachment motion is pending in Sri Lanka parliament, the report gives many editorial comments that help the South Asian subcommittee of the Senate's all powerful Foreign Relations Committee to further intensify the Congress' and State Department pressure on Sri Lanka.

Due to Sri Lanka's utter inability to provide cogent arguments and explanations as to why an impeachment motion is being forwarded it allowed foreign governments, foremost being the State Department and its diplomatic representative Michele Sison, to provide their own interpretations long before even the contents of the motion was publicized. Sri Lankan authorities allowed many rights groups, civic organizations and others to express their opinion for well over two weeks to create a political atmosphere that the GSL was endeavoring to bring the judiciary as a captive branch.
