The two High Ranking Attorney Generals department officers have been summoned over “boycott” Muslim shops and other racists postings on their social media accounts by the Human Rights Commission.
The two High Ranking Attorney Generals department officials together with certain other officers of the Department were seen making racist, tribal remarks over the last 4 weeks following the Easter Sunday attacks giving rise to many questions on the impartiality and conduct of the islands lead prosecutor.
“It was shocking to see so many members of the official bar act the way they did. They acted like complete tribalist reactionaries who did not understand the context or the sophistication of the issue. Instead, they led the the march blaming and maligning the ordinary Muslims of the country coming out with all their inherent tribal ideologies,” a senior Lawyer told the Colombo Telegraph.
