Mohan Peiris: The Best Fitting CJ For A Lawless Regime

By Puran Appu –

Mohan Peiris

When the Supreme Court declared P B Jayasundara guilty in February 2008, of having concealed facts concerning a high profile fraud and being party to a massive corruption, the Secretary to the President, Weeratunga, pleaded the Supreme Court with ‘the President’s desire to restore Jayasundara as the Finance Secretary’. This request was acceded with no questions raised by the then CJ Asoka de Silva with no single word in the judgement made against P B Jayasundara changed. Since then thanks to the ‘upholding of the rule of law’ by CJ Asoka de Silva, the government is now blessed with the ‘services’ of the best cheat, declared by the Supreme Court, in the most high profile office in the Public Finance.

Surely, the Office of the CJ has a greater importance than the Finance Secretary and needed to be filled with a person with a ‘proven character’. The currant CJ who ruled number of bills that violated the peoples’ democratic rights and freedom, unconstitutional is surely not the right person for the job. And the government is determined to replace her with a most suitable person for the job and discovered, probably the most fitting person with best credential for the post, that is Mohan Peiris, the former Attorney General and currently the ‘Chief Legal Advisor’ to the Cabinet of Ministers.

Under the current political climate ‘dishonestly’ at its best is a must for the right candidate.  Has Mohan Peiris possesses this character? Absolutely yes, the evidence in this regard is in abundance. Just read the last paragraph (para 7) of the Affidavit by the then Director General of Customs, W D L Perera sent to the then CJ, seeking immediate removal of Mohan Peiris from the office of the Attorney-at-Law for professional misconduct and dishonesty.

Above all, the innate character and capacity to deceive the entire judiciary and the whole nation play a pivotal role. Has this person earned this qualification during his career in the public service? Answer again is absolutely ‘Yes’. In this regards Mohan Peiris possesses a proven character above any other qualification required for the office of the CJ. Read the Director General of Customs, Sudharma Karunarathna’s observations (paragraph 47, 48), referring to the Public Interest Litigation (SCFR/536/2010) now being heard before the Supreme Court. In this case the then AG Mohan Peiris is cited in his personal capacity as a Respondent – about the role he had played undermining the office of the Attorney General deceiving not only the Director General but the entire Judiciary in a matter where public funds running into over half a billion rupees had been defrauded with alleged knowledge and approval of the AG Mohan Peiris and his ally P B Jayasundara.

The gullible people conned by the MR administration surely needed to be fed with more evidence to be convinced. Read the paragraph Nos 30 to 40 of the Petition in the Case SCFR/536/201, which surely demonstrates that Mohan Peiris is the only fitting candidate for the office of the Chief Justice in the lawless dictatorship under President Mahinda Rajapakse.

This is food for thought for all right-thinking politicians, if any, particularly in the ‘so-called leftist parties’ serving in the current Parliament that surrendered its legislative power to the Executive President and simply do noting but act according to the whims and fancies of the President who is mad and blinded with absolute power.

    Even if the President appoints a CJ, at the end of the day, its not the CJ who gives the ruling in each and every case. So the present senior Judges are going to sit in judgement of the cases and could be depended upon to provide the right decision. However, if the new CJ manipulates the system and appoints selected Judges who will support the Government’s required decision, then the new CJ should be impeached as well. So 2013 can be called “the year of impeachment”.

    The president should give medals of honour to the following:
    Sarath Silva
    Asoka Silva
    CA Chandraprema

    They all helped maintain the rule of law. Sarath did it Gedara Yana Gaman, Asoka did it while opting to join the pres secretariat immediately after retirement and Chandraprema who wrote the Nobel Prize-listed “Gota’s War.”

    Absolutely shocking….. what a character to possess; doesn’t Mohan Peiris have any shame? I don’t suppose so, given the skullduggery he has engaged in.

    Mohan P was sent to Royal College for his last year of high school, but I suppose that was far too little to cleanse him of his malevolent traits. Let him and those who ride rough-shod over the the law and people of the land remember the phrase “non semper erit aestas”, for hard times cannot come any sooner for their ilk.

      It was the last two years at Royal that made him ACPC ( All Ceylon Pacha Captain ) from being fondly known as ‘Cupboard’ for over 10 years at SJC.

    While Mohan P can quote from various English books which will dazzle the half-baked Rajapakse boys running the country, in terms of actual ability and professional ethics Pieris may fall short. I have a better idea. How about Nihal Sri Amarsekera for the post of CJ ? I am told that one need not be a lawyer to be on the Supreme Court. After all, lawyers like Sarath Silva, Asoka Silva and now Shirani Bandarnayake have proved to be unsatisfactory. Of the three, I think amorous Sarath Silva who is also a kind of lay preacher was the only one who fits the tele-drama led culture of today.The other two were just after a better deal for their families, which is rather boring.
    Nihal Sri on the other hand has many qualifications. His second name “Sri” is appealing.The fact that although he is not a lawyer, he is always dabbling in legal matters and writing in legal jargon makes him the ideal candidate for the soap opera. In any event it is obvious that our President will only consider deeply disturbed psychos for high appointments.

    How about his evidence in the Ekneliyagoda case to the UN – that the missing person was in a foreign country! He did his best to avoid giving evidence when the case came up in court, and when examined on his comment re a foreign country, he stated that he did not know and ‘ only God knows’ where Ekneliyagoda was !!Great performance for a former AG!!!

    Mohan Peiris is a laundry baas par excellence. He withdrew 143 indictments which were filed against politicos and government henchmen when he functioned as AG. The decline of the AG department was begun by this shameless character.

    Long live MP. Long live our maharaja King Makinda.

    AS STATED BY S.L. GUNASEKERA, NO MOTHER’S SON WOULD ACCEPT THE POST OF CJ UNDER TH PRESENT CONTEXT IF HE HAS AN IOTA OF SELF RESPECT,DECENCY DECORUM AND ABOVE ALL A SENSE OF SHAME.HE WILL BE CONSTANTLY SUBJECT TO DISRESPECT BY THE LAWYERS, DENOUNCED BY THE GENERAL PUBLIC, AND LOOKED UPON WITH UTTER DERISION BY THE JUDICIARY. HOW EVER HE WILL BE TEMPTED BY THE PERKS, PRIVILEGES AND PAGAA TO ACCEPT THE POST OF CJ NOTWITHSTANDING THE DISGRACE ATTACHED. HOW TO FIND A “GENTLEMAN” TO FIT A PUBLIC POSITION TODAY ?

    Dr. Mervin Silva has a Phd and does not need to be a lawyer to be appointed as the CJ in place of the current CJ who is also not a lawyer and never practised law.

    If Shirani Bandaranayake was eligible because she has a Phd why cannot Mervin Silva be the CJ after we hear his religius and moral preaching everyday

    Look at all the anti government pundits and traitors trying to split hairs with the impeachment issue . Where were these pundits when the JVP and the Tigers were killing thousands of innocent people ? Where were these traitors when the previous government was prepared to hand one third of the country to the Tigers? Mahinda destroyed the terrorists and saved the country now all these pundits and traitors have got the freedom to undermine the government and try to defend a dodgy CJ. I ask the government to sack all these dodgy judges in the Supreme Court and Appeals Court and throw out the dodgy CJ and also kick the back side of the Black Coats as well. Media people give a place to my comments as you give a lot of publicity to the anti government forces.. Sudu Akka signing off with my love to all! Ha ha ha ha ha…..ha ha ha ….Sudu Akka as always!
