By Colombo Telegraph –
Chief Justice has asked for an open public trial. The application was refused. Then asked for observers including Bar Association of Sri Lanka. This was also refused. Thus the inquiry would be held in camera, the Colombo Telegraph reliably learnt.
Chief Justice objected to Wimal Weerawansa MP and Dr. Rajitha Seneratne MP from participating as members of the PSC on the ground of bia – There were several cases where CJ has given orders affecting these MPs/their family members. Order on this is postponed for Thursday (6th December) afternoon 2.30 pm. On that day, they will also consider whether further time would be given to the CJ for explanations.
