Judiciary And Executive Have To Work Together – De Facto Chief Justice Pieris

De facto Chief Justice Mohan Pieris whose appointment is still being contested in the Supreme Court now run by him has denied the importance of the separation of powers doctrine when he claimed yesterday that the legislature, executive and judiciary were three different institutions only for “administrative purposes.”

Peiris said he believed the three institutions would be most public friendly if it functions as a single mechanism.

He was speaking as chief guest at the opening of a new court in Anuradhapura to try cases pertaining to LTTE detainees and child abuse cases.

“The best judge is one who knows good and evil and has a conscience. We must never forget this” the de fact Chief Justice said.

The new court is based on a recommendation of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission.

    What about judges and the attorney general who dont have a conscience and work hand in glove with the executive?

    “The main suspect in connection with the killing of The Sunday Leader Editor-in-Chief Lasantha Wickremetunge has been acquitted from all charges and released by the Mount Lavinia Magistrate’s Court.

    He appeared before the court, when the case was taken up, and was acquitted from all charges and ordered to be released by the Mount Lavinia Chief Magistrate Ranga Wimalsena on the instructions of the Attorney General.”

    Suspect says he was forced to give false evidence. By whom? Isnt that perjury?

        “he claimed yesterday that the legislature, executive and judiciary were three different institutions only for “administrative purposes.”

        His dictum should be ignored.

        Would you now agree that Sinala/Tamil stupidity knows no bound.

        There is a difference between education and wisdom, here in this island both are mutually exclusive.

            Now that you agree with me on Tamil/Sinhala stupidity do you think this is the appropriate time to enforce expatriation of these two people back to their ancestral homeland, North South India?

              Hahahaaa….Man !! What do you see now !!? The process has started long before, but….especially from the end point of Mullivaaikkaal.

              Don’t you feel like a house maid in a Middle East Monarch !!? Don’t you open your mouth just to eat something provided alone!!? (You and I are a little bit lucky to have at least this CT to get rid of our anger).
              Do you recall a song at the beginning of 90s, on peace and National unity – created by Premadasa regime beginning with the versus… ”This land belongs to you, this land belongs to me, this land belongs to all of us to live in harmony”. – All the people of the land were represented in the song at the time of it’s inception.

              Now too you hear this song being sung…..but by only one family.

              So I am getting ready man. Give me a lift on your way up to Rajapakse International Airport or Thalaimannar pier.

              You have just denied me the life time great enjoyment of expatriating you back to your ancestral land.

              Therefore you can stay.

    Mohan,
    You are promoting King’s rule. It is good only for people like you who wish to stoop to lick the kings feet to stay in power. The legislature, executive and judiciary were three different institutions only for “administrative purposes’, you said. What other purpose is there for these instituions to be independent. Tomorrow if you are fired from your job, I am pretty sure you will twist your theory to suit your position. What a disgrace to this country.

    As divulged by this Legal Luminary, the legislature, executive and judiciary are three different institutions only for administrative purposes. The problem the Public has today is because they do not function differently on Administrative matters. The Public clearly saw how Independent the Executive and the legislature functioned in removing the Judiciary from Office, for him to succeed.

    Now he believes the three institutions would be most public friendly if it functions as a single mechanism. I do not know whether it is Public friendly, but certainly looks very beneficial for the three Institutions to function as a single Mechanism today for their own survival and hang the Public interest. Their concern of Public Interest is only a false facade. When people sell their self respect for mere personal gain, it simply shows their Caliber, no matter how qualified or educated they are. It is Sad and a Shame indeed.

    This argument that judiciary should work in harmony with Executive and govt is similar to the one espoused by Central Bank governor.He recently said it is ‘productive’ if harmony exists between treasury n Central Bank. so similarly now every independent institution will claim n do this

    What he means is that the supreme court should approve any bill sent for approval by the government – that too,within 24 hours.
    Also,that the court must ignore actions of the government with regard to citizens including those in custody.
    Also that tis quite fair to keep citizens in secret locations for years if evidence is unobtainable for any crime whatsoever,until the citizen dies of old age or torture.
    Also that actions of police and armed services are not to be questioned unless the attorney general takes notice.
    Also that cases on hebeas corpus and fundamental rights can be transferred to locations far from where they were filed to make it difficult if not impossible for lawyers and litigants to attend.
    Also that judges who have personal interest need not be excused from hearing cases.
    Also that judges can lie here and abroad to safeguard the reputation of the president and his ministers.
    Also that PTA transcends all other laws in the treatment of persons taken into custody.
    He has outlined a new type of “justice”.

    Mohan Peiris is the worst disgrace to the judiciary, angel of death to justice and Satan to the legal fraternity. This is clean-shaven, fair looking Satan, a curse indeed…

    He knows best about his integrity and character. Surely if he had any concerns about the honor and respect to “people’s judicial power” he should never have accepted this appointment.

    He has been peddling lies to defend and deny the evil deeds of the incumbent government all these years. He demonstrated time time again that he has no conscience. As a reward for his blind and deaf loyalty and subservience, he has been appointed as the Chief Justice. People of his ilk consider themselves as patriotic and noble citizens. Our country abounds with people like him , Wimal Weerawansa and our minister for justice.

    Hahahahahaaaa……Vedda !!

    ”…..life time great enjoyment of expatriating you….”

    Nota bene :- (The reply button in your last reply is missing. Means the quota for reply is over. I have to answer you deep down in the page as I can not apply M.SIVANATHAN theory on CT Editorial Board !!?)

    Well, I thought you are one of the two Waring communities and would join me in the trip – forgetting that you are neither.

    You are well equipped with traditional weapons and a modern Double cap now. You have reasons to be bold enough.

    Even last Month a poor girl from the east returned from the monarch state in a nailed Coffin, probably for asking her five years salary from her Sheikh Master. She committed suicide by swallowing poison is the claim of her master’s side. But according to her parents injuries have been identified on her breasts, knees….etc.,Her name is Yogeswaren Shanthi from Omadiyaamadhu – Vaagarai.

    Thank you Sir Native for giving me an extended golden opportunity with the extended visa to watch these terror Democrat’s Carnival in this cursed land. But I am equally stupid like Shanthi to confront anyone for my portion of rights. That’s what the problem is…!!?

    While discussing about the expatriation to the North and South of India…..we are you going to do with the expatriation of our young Mothers in their 20s to the Monarch State !!?

    Hoping to watch you in the front row discussing it with the almighty during the CHOGM with a sharp Ax on your left shoulder and a glittering Key tag of the Double Cap on your right hand.
