Dec 21, 2012 (LBO) - Sri Lanka's court of appeal has summoned parliamentary Speaker and legislators who were in a committee that found the Chief Justice guilty of misconduct in controversial circumstances.

Sri Lanka's Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake went court asking to quash the decision of the committee saying she was denied natural justice, the committee was biased, and that it was not an independent tribunal.

The court of appeal has ruled that it had jurisdiction to hear the case, reports said, in a landmark decision that will lead to the judicial review of the actions of a parliamentary committee for the first time.

Sri Lanka's Speaker had previously said that the parliament was not bound by court decisions, a position that was backed by opposition leader Rani Wickremasinghe, who also has a habit of claiming that the parliament is 'supreme'.

The Chief Justice in her plaint had cited a submission made by Sri Lanka at the United Nations over shortcoming in the island's impeachment process for judges in seeking judicial review of a decision made by a parliamentary committee.

"On the previous occasion the Human Rights Committee examined Sri Lanka’s periodic report, it express concern on the compatibility of the impeachment process with the scope and spirit of Article 14, since it would compromise the independence of the judiciary," the plaint said, quoting what is said was clause 302 in a set of documents.

"As stated above Article 107 a judge can be removed only on “proved grounds of misbehaviour or incapacity” and the standing orders allows for the judge in question defend himself either on his own or retaining a legal counsel, non adherence to the rules of natural justice by the inquiry committee would attract judicial review.

"Indeed nowhere either in the relevant constitutional provisions or the standing orders seek to exclude judicial scrutiny of the decisions of the inquiring committee. Thus, it is envisaged that if the inquiring committee were to misdirect itself in or breached the rules of natural justice its decisions could be subject to judicial review."

SriLanka Parliament and British parliament are not same After 1978 J.R constitution
Those who do not care Hon Anura B try to take his ruling as Gospel truth
for personal benefits( KABAGOYA THAGOYA THEORY)

Executive president can make a parliament according to his whims and fancies. After supreme court ruling it became very easy

We dot have a parliament representing general public at present

This country do not have professionals

Most of them make political statements
to satisfy Authorities and get personal benefits or totake revenge
I can name such people But against the policy of this web site

Citizens are waiting for the final outcome of the impeachment motion whether the motion is correct or incorrect. Many are not aware of technical jargon of the conflict among legislature, judiciary & executive.Some are tired of reading pages & pages what media has supported so far. Moreover, it is said that PSC report contains over 1500 pages with repetition, typo & grammatical errors but establishing a national record submitting it, in the shortest time period in our history.

Whatever, this impeachment would be exemplary paradigm for lawyers,judges,parliamentarians, administrators & high ranking officers for future reference. Also, this is an opportunity for filling the shortcomings of constitution & judicial system sensibly in matching with most suitable international practices while protecting the national image already lost.

Procedure to remove a CJ is clearly mentioned in our constituition.So everyone should follow it without trying to fish in muddy water.
What I see is so called international community who hates our war victory tries to remove this government in the hope establishing a puppet government like in Iraq,Aegypt while our precious opposition party tries to cover their own weaknesses using this oppurtunity.
This is the opinion of former CJ on this matter who is not a government supporter.
අගවිනිසුරුට එරෙහිව දොaෂාභියෝගයක්‌ ගෙන ඒමට ඇති අයිතිය ආණ්‌ඩුක්‍රම ව්‍යවස්‌ථාවෙන්ම තහවුරු කර තිබෙනවා. නීතිඥවරුන්, විනිසුරුවන් හෝ වෙනත් පුද්ගලයන් ඊට මැදිහත්වීම ව්‍යවස්‌ථාවට අභියෝග කිරීමක්‌ද?

ඔව්. නීතිය එයයි. නමුත් මෙහිදී ජනාධිපති සතු මේ විනය බලය ක්‍රියාත්මක කිරීම අපේ රටේ යම් ආකාරයකට සාම්ප්‍රදායානුකූලව සීමාවෙලා තිබෙනව. ඒ අනුව ජනාධිපති තම විනය බලය ක්‍රියාත්මක කරන්නෙ පාර්ලිමේන්තුව හරහා. මා හිතන්නෙ එය විනිශ්චයකාරවරයාට කිසියම් සුරක්‌ෂණයක්‌ ඇතිකිරීමට සිදුකරන දෙයක්‌. විනිශ්චයකාරවරයකු ඉවත් කිරීමට පාර්ලිමේන්තුව හරහා දොaෂාභියෝගයක්‌ ගෙන ඒමේ ක්‍රියාදාමය විනිශ්චයකාරවරයාට සාධාරණය ඉටුකිරීමේ අරමුණ ඇතිව කළ දෙයක්‌. මේක අද අපේ රටේ බොහෝ දෙනකුට පැටලිලා තියෙන්නෙ. විනිශ්චයකාරවරයකු ඉවත් කිරීමට ජනාධිපතිට තිබෙන තනි බලය පාර්ලිමේන්තුව හරහා ක්‍රියාත්මක කරන්නෙ ඒ විනිසුරුට සාධාරණයක්‌ ඉටුකරන්නයි. ඒ නිසා දොaෂාභියෝගයක්‌ කියන්නෙ විනිශ්චයකාරවරයා හා පාර්ලිමේන්තුව අතර තිබෙන ක්‍රියාදාමයක්‌ පමණයි. ඒ සඳහා වෙනත් බාහිර කිසිවකුට මැදිහත් වීමට අවකාශයක්‌ නෑ.
මේ චෝදනා පදනම් රහිත බව දැනටමත් අගවිනිසුරුතුමිය ප්‍රකාශ කර තිබෙනව. පදනම් රහිත චෝදනා මත අසාධාරණ තීරණයක්‌ ගත්තොත් ඊට එරෙහිව පියවර ගන්න පුළුවන්ද.

If Government succumbs to these opportunists and betrayers it might be suicide.When government tried to finish war these opportunists cried as much as they could as well as in SF scenario.But nothing happened as government had courage to withstand these sinister forces.

දෝෂාබියෝගය කියන්නේ නඩුවක් නොවෙ, වෙන කිසි විදියකින් ඉවත් කරන්න බැරි අය ඉවත් කරන්න තියෙන Special Procedure එකක් පමණි Diluting its power through the courts is very dangerous for the future we might have an executive CJ instead of an executive president Razz if this so called judgement by the courts becomes a land mark case and become a law we will never be able to remove a CJ (he/she) in the future.

දෝෂාබියෝගය Executive President කෙනෙක් ඉවත් කරන්න උනත් බාවිතා කරන්න පුළුවන් එහෙම උනා නං මේ නාට්ටියේ සම්පූර්ණ පරස්පරය බලාගන්න තිබ්බා ඔය කෑගහන කට්ටියම විවස්තාවට අත නොතාබව් කියල පෙළ පාලි යයි Every one is playing for power none is innocent.

Being the first citizen of the country & by using the executive powers,why not HE President intervenes to mollify this aggravated situation, appointing an independent team to probe the allegations against the CJ.

I believe he is empowered by the constitution to overrule the decisions of such parliament committee though his advisers may not wish pursue such an action.

CJ laments state media’s “slander campaign”
December 27, 2012 12:12 am
Ada Derana

Lawyers of Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake today accused the government of running “an organized series of programmes” in state electronic media targeting the Chief Justice, the Judiciary and leading lawyers.

They said said government spin doctors are involved in these “baseless propaganda programmes”.

“It is abundantly clear that these are not isolated attacks but meticulously orchestrated attacks coerced and carried out at the behest of highest in authority.

“These are clearly intended to pressurise the Chief Justice to summarily resign, because the Government is well aware that the entire impeachment process is irregular and the Chief Justice cannot be lawfully removed from office”, a statement said.

Bandaranayake, 54, country’s first woman Chief Justice was found guilty by a parliamentary select committee in the government moved impeachment against her. - PTI

I think there can be few other reasons.

Maybe
- Clash between judiciary and constitution.
- Only 3 out of 14 accusations proven. Also it appear these could have been addressed
without an impeachment . Matters of assets declarations could have been mediated with a punishment.
there will be so many in politics who are guilty of such)
- the speed of which this was pushed , issue of appealing and this appearing more political than anything

I am not cleaning CJ as I don;t know her background. But am basing this on the fact which appear to public.

Wonder what is going on with the Presidents secondary committee.

I even dont understand why an impartial hearing wouldn't take place.

But my opinion is; if she's found guilty by any way, her chances of finding an employment overseas will be very limited regardless of the qualifications due to the position she held and the publicity given on her case. Currently it is negative publicity for her and prospective employers
would take these as bad mark.

IMO according to the constitution there can not be another committee.But as you have mentioned ultimate decision is on presidents hand.But if the parliment decide to accept the committee report HE should also agree to that decision.
Finally whether we like it or not we have to follow the procedure mentioned in contitution till it is ammended.

The Lawyers’ Collective issuing a statement deplored “false propaganda” against the Chief Justice and said that the attacks against the Chief Justice are not isolated attacks but “meticulously orchestrated attacks coerced and carried out at the behest of highest in authority”

Issuing a statement they say; “Among the false accusations intended to mislead the public, they have stated that the Chief Justice has fixed the benches in the Court of Appeal. It is common knowledge that the Chief Justice has no role to play in arranging any bench whatsoever in the Court of Appeal.

Their insinuation that the Chief Justice selected a bench to hear her case is an insult to the dignity and integrity of the Judges of the country’s higher judiciary.”

“These few Ministers and the State media falsely accuse that the Chief Justice has become an active politician and that the members of the Bar Association are conspirators. It is abundantly clear that these are not isolated attacks but meticulously orchestrated attacks coerced and carried out at the behest of highest in authority.

These are clearly intended to pressurize the Chief Justice to summarily resign, because the Government is well aware that the entire impeachment process is irregular and the Chief Justice cannot be lawfully removed from office. We are confident that the Chief Justice will not succumb to pressure, now exerted at a higher pace through the Government’s propaganda team.”

“The contents of those programmes are malicious and contemptuous and all those who are involved in them are liable to be dealt with for contempt of court and civil defamation.

We urge the Ministers concerned to conduct themselves with dignity and caution the public not to be misled by the false propaganda by these unruly and unethical elements, which are unable to justify the impeachment process, except to launch a massive malicious campaign to divert attention from the truth.

We, as lawyers reiterate that as a body we will stand by the Chief Justice and would take all possible steps, within the law, to defeat the impeachment.” the Lawyers Collective further says.

Ruling party has already endorsed & stamped the exit of the CJ & the newcomer has accepted the challenging post, pushing behind the professional ethics.

Any type of pressure either from domestic or international front would be categorically discarded in authoritative style. At the end of the day, everyone will be silent & life goes on....as usual ...as voters have given the blessing.....??.....
