GoSL Is In The Process Of Instituting Criminal Prosecution Against CJ Shirani – Lawyers

“It is reliably learnt that the government is in the process of instituting criminal prosecution against the CJ, Shirani Bandaranayake shortly.  The recommencement of the hate campaign against her in the state media is an indication of this intended action. The state media is known to be operating in close collaboration with all law enforcement agencies in the country.  We have witnessed such behaviour of the state media in similar cases where the government is involved in a witch-hunt against individuals and organisations” says the Lawyers Collective.

CJ Shirani Bandaranayake

Lawyers’ Collective reiterates that due to governmental interference, law enforcement has lost its operational independence.  The manner in which the proceedings of the Parliamentary Select Committee were manipulated demonstrated the extent to which the government has gone to persecute the head of the judiciary. Initiation of a prosecution of CJ Shirani Bandaranayaka is one of the techniques the government will resort to, in order to justify the impeachment, before the Commonwealth Summit scheduled in November 2013.

Lawyers Collective urges the Government to desist from persecuting CJ, Shirani Bandaranayake any further, as it is a continuation of the attack on the administration of justice.  Lawyers Collective considers the intended prosecution as a malicious witch-hunt.  It is a prolongation of the unprecedented ugly impeachment process never heard of in a democracy before. Though the Government and its agencies are working tirelessly at present to show the world that the impeachment was lawful, the lawyers  want the public not to be misled by any further “post-impeachment moves”  by the Government,  through its various branches, to justify the impeachment. There was no doubt that at the time of the impeachment, the highest courts of the country had determined that the PSC proceedings were unconstitutional and the Executive and Parliament ignored such determinations.

    This is shocking news.
    Even the corruption allegations against her seem to have failed.
    What new “crime” are they going to frame her for?

    Not to worry Percy will come up with something to charge her with. None of it will be true but his edicts will be carried out. He has created a dictatorship which will march to his tunes. The days of democracy are over. Western powers are too corrupt and ridden with their own problems to do anything much about our Percy. The best they can do is to get the Indians to give him a good verbal drubbing behind close doors. That too is only restricted to the Tamil issue. What Percy does to his own kind such as the CJ nobody cares about. He is free to do unto them as he pleases.

      lanka win,
      You maybe correct.
      CJ Shirani and her court approved the 18th amendment – which handed over full control of all independent commissions empowered by the 17th amendment,to MR, after only 24 hours of deliberation and made him the most powerful dictater of sri lanka.
      Even parliamentarians including the speaker did not know the contents of the 18th amendment bill,when it was tabled in parliament.
      Now her injudicious undemocratic judgement is being used to persecute her.

        Justice,

        MR introduced 18th Amendment when Sri Lankans were celebrating war victory and eating Kiribath soon after end of the war.

        The opposition was so weak, helpless and voiceless then. CJ Shirani Bandaranayake was new to her post and MR politicised winning the war as a weapon to pass 18th Amendment.

        Had CJ Dr.Shirani B. opposed to this amendment, she would have been fired right then and there.

        Even Gen.Sarath Fonseka was cornered and was never telecasted him in the manistream media.

        Watch how the Liberation Drama was staged and unfolded at youtube.
        Listen to TV commentator, the Ministers and the supporters.

        Also MR duped both Parliament and the ex.CJ saying he wanted extra powers to fight UN on war crimes.

        Watch the events unfolding now.

    ” Vinai virhaithavar, Vinai aruppar; Thinai virhaithavar Thinai aruppar” – a Tamil proverb.

    Those who plant evil will harvest evil and those who plant seeds, will harvest seeds. Karma works beautifully and it punishes and rewards equitably and judiciously. There is no escape.

    Govt has been badly wounded by the impeachemnt fallout. Like General Sarath Fonseka, CJ Bandaranaike is being hounded without any mercy. In order to justify the unjustifiable some excuse has to be found to justify the impeachment drama and the mis-appointment of a CJ ineligible for the job. The drama continues like an incontinent diarrhoea. The vengeance of the president is coming from a regime beset with so many accusations and cases of HR violations and corruption is ironical.

    The horrible and despicable depths the uneducated Rajapakshas precipitate this country and the Sinhala nation by destroying all forms of independent, decent and democratic individuals and institutions no one fathoms while the Tamils are raising their standards, reputation and global acceptance through endeavoring producing and nurturing luminaries like Vigneshwaran. Rajapaksha Sri Lanka and this nation of fools are fast becoming irrelevant in world view and in about a decade or two a new nation of credibility and acceptance will be born out of Tamils!

    Standard fair from a state machine driven primarily by fear. I have no love for the former CJ and her activities but the issue here is far more dangerous for the independence of the judiciary.

      She happily cooperated to weaken the independence of the judiciary
      when the going was good for her. If she and her allegedly corrupt
      husband have broken the law it is but natural they should hold themselves accountable.

    Two Ex Judges throwing their hat in the ring of politics have made Raja Inc really nervous. This is a real threat to the family long term plan now better sort out the threats and give the same medicne given to SF.
    Raja Inc has no problem with the person as long as the person is no threat to their personal life. Just imagine how many of Raja Inc family, extended family and friends are living off the govt directly and indirectly.

    When there is no justice even for chief justice, we do not need any protection from this criminal executive. It is time we stand by jutice for the overthrow of the executive. Sri Lankan military learnt so much from Pakistanis. How come the army is quite about violation of judiciary by Rajapakse cronies?

    Ha Ha this is nothing to be surprised of – She’ll be found guilty – sent to prison and then like SF will be pardoned if she falls on her knees and begs MR – what else is there

    aaah we are getting tired of this line – why not a new drama – Hey sajin Vass, Gota, Basil, think of a new episode

    Some one should file a criminal case against each Minister and Secretaries to the ministries. I think SL ruling regime is digging a deeper hole and as usual they will back off of this one too when they see the opposition to such an action.

    In the recent past various decisions by the government after announcement have been reversed. This is not because the government truly wants to move ahead with these decisions but these decisions are publicized so that when there is no new news the regime is scared that people will start focusing inward towards the regime and to avoid the inward focus of the people the regime puts out these types of information.

    Shirani is a threat to the President as she may want to enter politics. The regime is trying hard to put away in prison all the prospective contenders who may contest against the present regime.

    This new kind of Rajapakse politics is Called “Harakiri Politics” which is Murder Suicide.

    For the first time in Sri Lanka’s history we saw a Buddhist monk self immulating fron of Dalada Maligawa.

    Very soon there could be more surprises and anything is possible including new destinations in Africa, searching for my Gorilla.
