By Colombo Telegraph -

“The Judicial Service Association (JSA) of Sri Lanka urges all the parties concerned to respect the Supreme Court determination to avoid constitutional crisis which will ultimately lead to lawlessness in the country.” says The Judicial Service Association of Sri Lanka.

We publish below the statement in full;

The Supreme Court of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka exercising exclusive jurisdiction to interpret the Constitution vested under Article 125 of the Constitution has held that the Parliamentary Select Committee procedure which found the Chief Justice Dr. ShiraniBandaranayake guilty was unconstitutional.

The Judicial Service Association (JSA) of Sri Lanka urges all the parties concerned to respect the Supreme Court determination to avoid constitutional crisis which will ultimately lead to lawlessness in the country.  The JSA also urges the Parliament to enact necessary legislation as recommended by the Supreme Court to probe alleged misbehavior of apex court Judges.

The JSA is concerned about the media campaign aimed at vilifying the judges who discharge their duties according to law and their conscience.

    JSA on the ruling of CJ’s corruption charges are serious in nature and Court of Law in judges are prejuduce,read the verdit of a case ,how will you discover the law which the decision lays down? How will you find what is called the ratio decidendi–the principle on which the decision is based CJ? By Judges forget that Judges are not a Legistor!It is NOT duty of Judges—in form at any rate to MAKE RULES OF LAW. The Sri Lankan Judges are in MYTH court of Law far above the Parliment; in reality unlimited legistative power of Parliment sovergenity is a RULE ofLAW in our Republic Constitution. The CJ’s corrupation charges and Imperchment are concern Our Judicial system that is less stable and less incompatnace with dealing litigatious in the court of Justice. Sri Lankan Courts and higher level Judges abonded basic principle Frirnees and Justice ” WHOEVER THEY ARE AND WHAT EVER POWER OR POSITION IN COURTS MUST BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE WITHOUT MERCY”. COMBACT CORRUPTION ,PROMOTE INTERGRITY AND STAY VIGILANT ALSO RESPONSIBILITY AND DUTY OF COURT OF JUSTICE INTEREST OF OUR LEGAL SYSTEM. OUR JUDGES BRING RULE OF LAW AND LEGAL SYSTEM HAS BEEN PUT INTO PERIL.BUT EVEN MORE IS AT STAKE LEAGAL SYSTEM IS SEEN TO FAIL MOST CITIZENS.WHILE OUR LEAGL SYSTEM AND RULE OF LAW SEEMS TO BE CAPTURE BY MONEYED INTEREST,CREDIBILITY OF RULE OF LAW HAD BEEN ERODE. AS IN REALITY SINKS IN THAT WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY OF OPPORTUNITY JUSTICE OF LAW ,THAT EVEN OUR LONG-VAUNTED RULE OF LAW AND SYSTEM JUSTICE HAVE BEEN SENSE OF NATION IDENTITY MAY BE PUT INTO JEOPARDY.

        How can that work ? His henchmen are the majority in the parliament. Today they have got passed that ” Divinasuma” in the parliament. I bet everyone who respect the rule of law above everything will vote against -MAHINDA.

    I hope that someone files cases for: 1) Nullifying the Divineguma Bill that was passed in the Parliament today since that was passed WITHOUT the amendments / procedures that the Supreme Court ruled the government to do before it is passed. Clearly this is a violation of the constitution & contempt of court. 2) All idiots who still keep proclaiming that court verdicts do not have to be adhered to. If not, what is to prevent an ordinary citizen like me from committing the most heinous crimes and if the courts find me guilty, to tell the courts to fly a kite?

      I fully endorse your comment. We, the citizens of Sri Lanka are above these elected idiotic MPs. If they can act against the Verdicts of the Supreme Courts, the citizens too can act against the Supreme Court orders and as you say tell the SC to fly a kite.

    JSA are correct and their request is in the interests of the nation. Parliament should enact fool proof legislation to judge the actions of any judge – including the CJ – in the proper manner.

    Attention all Sri Lanka Judiciary, CJ, Bar association, SC, all trade unions,opposition parties, Clergy…and the General public. http://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/sleepwalking-in-to-an-apocalypse-the-gathering-storm-of-sinhalese-muslim-strife/ COME JAN 11TH 6.30 PM. AFTER PARLIAMENT PASSES MR FAVOURABLE VOTE AGAINST OUR CJ…….THIS IS THE SAME TYPE (ABOVE VIDEO) OF VIOLANCE, WITH THE HELP OF GOTABAYA…..RATNA LANKA BUFFALO ARMY…..THE GOVT IS PLANNING TO STROM THE SUPREME COURT BUILDING AND ACQUIRE IT CHASING OUR CJ. THEREFORE THE BEST OFFENSE IS THE BEST DEFENSE. THEREFOR BE PREPARED FOR IT I explained how few Family Jokers who don’t know a damn of Professional administration,good governance, business ethics and world affairs…….who control 90% of country’s budget and economy…..using puppets to fulfill their selfish power grab and wasting country’s resources on Mahinda Chintana, untested projects and economy. MARA’s economic systems are not based on either Capitalist nor Socialist…but a self promoting, long term power grab and a distructive economic system.You could see all the cutouts, advertisings and participation in all the projects NON OTHER THAN MARA BROTHERS ONLY. Please listen to following Derana video clip of ex CJ Sarath N. Silva desctibe what is Presiden’t character…..and how his decision to stand by Hedging Gamble not listening to anybody and as a result now the Petroleum corporation has to pay almost ONE BILLION US DOLLARS TO THE THREE BANKS. http://www.derana.lk/index.php?route=programs/programs/programdetails&pid=85&vid=5582&page=2 Please go into other clips by clicking on those windows. This could be the reason why during the last few months, gasolene prices are been increades frequently. While president is incharge of country’s cash box,with 20 million rupee personal budget expenditure per day……. Basil Rajapakse is incharge of the economy….starting charging rupees 400.00 per day for a 4′X4′ (4feet by 4feet) retail box in Nugegoda Bus stand and continue with all the markets and super markets, malls, airports, harbours, hotels, guest houses, aparment complexes, business entities all over Sri Lanka etc…etc…Divineguma 85 Billion Rupee will make him a MEGA BILLIONEER ECONOMIC DEV. MINISTER WITH NO RIVAL OR OPPOSITION IN SIGHT. while Gotabaya Rajapakse in charge of both all the defense services,Police, Prison industry, Ratna Lanka security services, all urban and interior development, School and Univ…security, nothern development and hotel dev.and construction industry he also started to control peoples, students and society through so called reformed and development projects. Therefore at the moment while country is in the hand of the four Rajapakse siblings….. when one citizen work ….there are ten puppet jokers have recruited to steel that one person’s income. CJ impeachment is the last source of power grab to fulfill MARA and his family dream of becomming the next total Dictator in Asia.

    If the Divineguma Bill has been passed without the amendments it is very serious. Basil Rajapaksa is quite capable of doing the diabolically wrong ting just like his lawless landgrabber of a brother Gota.

    Dear Madam CJ.Shirani Bandaranayke and the Judiciary.. First I honestly tell you all that PLEASE DO NOT TRUST RANIL WICKREMASINGHE TO HELP YOU TO GET HIS SUPPORT. HE INFACT IS A DOUBLE CHARACTER….OR A POLITICAL CROOK WHO IS EVER SERVING HIS MASTER MR BY GETTING AN ANNUAL SALARY OF 86 MILLION RUPEE (OUR MONEY THROUGH MR) AS A BRIBE. THE REASON I TELL IS DUE FOLLOWING REASONS. ———————————————————————– 1) RW not only, did not participate to hear the Appeals court hearing…but also restricted the other two UNP PSC members from attending it. Please read and listen to the following VIDEO what Mr. Wickremasinghe said during the SiriKotha UNP party membership drive. http://www.dailymirror.lk/news/24804-media-must-apologise-to-unp-ranil.html 1)Ranil clearly say that finally SC said what HE said was the correct decision…..what his correct decision…. I want to know what correct decision SC verdict to say what RW said was correct. What Appeals court said was that Parliament PSC CJ verdict was unconstitutional and viod……So what is Ranil saying other than Lying. 2) Also RW says that SC CANNOT TOPPLE MR GOVERNAMENT……..I want to know who said that SC is trying to topple MR govt……It is utter lies…….Both CJ, SC, Appeals court and WE are only looking for justice for CJ with an impartial hearing and not to topple the govt. 3)RW also say that he is treated like a FOOT BALL WHERE HE BOUNCE WHENEVER HE IS BEEN HIT. WE KINDLY TELL MR.RANIL THAT HE IS ALREADY A FOOTBALL WITHOUT AIR. THERE IS NO POINT HIM TO THINK WINNING ELECTIONS WHILE HE IS IN THAT SEAT…..AND MAY BE HE KNOWS IT……But with a Rs: 86 million annual pay…….he don’t mind dreaming to be ever to be the opposition leader. 4)IF RW and the UNP PSC two members came for the Appeals Court Hearing, it would have sent a strong message to MARA not to play politics with Judiciary and with country’s constitution…… BUT HE PURPOSLY SKIPPED IT AND ALSO FORCED THE 2 UNPer’s not to attend……following MARA’s advise. Now he is shedding crocodile tears telling “Speaker to Intervene”……It is the biggest joke one could hear for the whole life. Whom he try to deceive…..MR Paid Joker. Don’t he know that MR is already a dictator. while RW think of winning election in 2014…….What a Joke. RANNIL YOU LET US AND THE WHOLE UNP DOWN AND HUMILIATED. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. Finally I tell Mr.Wickremasinghe…..Please if you have any bit of self respect left…..don’t go to President’s house to have BLACK COFFEE WITHOUT SUGAR. IF YOU WANT I WILL SEND YOU THE BEST COFFEE IN THE WORLD….ETHIOPIAN OR COLUMBIAN COFFEE……BUT FOR OUR ONE SAKE AND RESPECT PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM GOING TO PRESIDENT’S HOUSE TO HAVE BLACK COFFEE. IF YOU WANT TO MEET PRESIDENT…..MAKE IT IN THE PARLIAMENT. PLEASE FOLLOW THE EXAMPLE OF MADAM CJ.BANDARANAYKE. Thank you. Dear Madam CJ. ————————————- The coming days are going to be very hard for you, SC, Judiciary and all of us who love you for the justice and we people you stand for. But please have a lot of extra courage, patience and Will Power and never GIVE UP…. With God’s help you will come as a winner…….and I am ONE HUNDRED PERCENT SURE OUR GOD ALMIGHTY WILL PROTECT YOU AND WILL SHOW YOU THE WAY. JUST LISTEN TO YOUR INNER VOICE AND ACT ON IT. REMEMBER HE DIED FOR ALL OF US….AND YOU ARE BEEN PREPARED FOR THIS….AND PLEASE TAKE IT COURAGESLY AND WITH FAITH. YOU HAVE ALREADY WON THE BATTLE AND GOING TO STAY IN YOUR SEAT AS LONG AS YOU WANT AND NO ONE CAN CHASE YOU BECAUSE HIS SPITIT IS WITH YOU. PLEASE HAVE YOUR FAITH IN HIM….AND WE PRAY FOR YOU AND FOR YOUR PROTECTION. GOD BLESS YOU.

    The lawyers must obtained the copies of statement of declaration of assets made by those who tried CJ.Specialy Rajitha,Modawansa,foul mouth Dilan and the rest.Since it is a public document this can be obtained.These parasites who suck the blood of the people can be exposed to the people of this country to show their true colors.

    I have told many occation I am not belongs to even SLFP, UNP or JVP or TNA or LTTE…. are voiceless and powerless citizen of with 25000 squre Miles an Island of Democratic Socialist Rupblice of Sri lanka. what ever reason I have say NO any Interest party to be protect and coverup corruption of Executive or Legeistitive in power. What is remarkeble is how few seemed and still semm to feel gulity and few were the whistleblowers of in court of Justice.Certainly has happened to our sense of value and justice,when the end of making more money JUSTIFIES BY UNDER THE NAME OF INDEPENDENCE OF JUDICIARY. The failures in Juiduciary system and Court of law are related and they reinforced each other.A judiciary system taht amplifies the voice of the rich provide ample opportunity for RULE OF LAWS,REGULATIONS AND ADOMINSTRAION OF THEM to be disngned in WAY that not only FAIL to protect the majority ordinary people against wealthy,but also futher encourage and enrich the rich-class at the expence of the rest of poor in our society since 1948. On principle stand is Judiciary Power within RULE OF LAW cannot OVERRULE OR DICTATE TERMS TO PARLIMENT SOVERGENENITY ,WHO EVER IN THE POWER of MEMBERS OF ELECATED REPRESTANTIVES. THE SOVERGENITY LIVES ON VERDIT OF BALLOT IS ROOTS OF DEMOCRACY IN SRI LANKA SINCE 1948 AFTER THE INDEPENDENCE. RULE OF LAW AND COURT OF JUSTICE HAVING RIGHT AND DUTY, AS WELL AS RESPONSABILITY OF INTERVEN OR INTERPRETATION OF UNFAIR AND UNJUST TO THE CITIZENS BY AUTHORITIES.THE REPUBLIC CONSTIUTIONS AND RECTIFIVE EARROS of PARLIMANT BEEN ABLE CORRECT BY COURT OF LAW. BUT IT IS OBVICE FACT TO SAY THAT THERE IS NO CHALLANGE AUTHORITY OF PEOPLE OR PEOPLE’S SOVEGENITY OF PARLIMENT UNDERMINE BY COURT OF JUSTICE OR RULE OF LAW OR INDEPENDENCE OF JUDICIARYANY ANY PART OF WORLD BY HOOK OR CROOK. ONLY INCORRIBLE CONDUCTS OF MEMBERS OF PARLIMENT OR RULE OF TYRANNY OF GOVERNCE OF PRESDEANT AND UNREPENTED ILLS OF ADIMINSTRATION OF SOCIETY CAN RECTIFIVE BY THE BALLOT .THAT IS CALL PEOPLE’S POWER!

    Down with the dogs’rule of the Rajapakse brothers. They are ruining our beloved land. They bluff and lie monopolising the media and the stooge press. We ask everyone to revolt as the independence of the judiciary is vital for our lives although inconveneient for the effing brothers who want to control everything. They will soon lose everything and will not find a place to hide. The next VIP murder by the family will be that of Ranil Wickremainghe, who they know, works with his brains. Mark my word! I can see it happening.

      Baby Face Basil is the Biggest Thief Like Big brother MARA. MARA stole TSUNAMI fund. Bssil stole DIVINEGUMA 85Billion Rupee fund. Basil lied to the whole world saying there were ONE MILLION TOURISTS CAME TO SRI LANKA LAST YEAR. I went to Airport six times last two weeks…..but saw only a hand full of tourists (not more than 40 per flight) landing from planes at the Katunayake airport. TO GET ONE MILLION TOURISTS PER YEAR….YOU NEED 12 FULL PLANE LOADS (2,600) OF TOURISTS SHOULD LAND IN SRI LANKA EVERY DAY…..365 DAYS PER YEAR. Therefore Big Alibaba (Basil) like his Big Brother Lied and duped the whole world by telling a BIG LIE THAT SRI LANKA RECEIVED ONE MILLION TOURISTS LAST YEAR. Now Basil plans to steal Divineguma 85 Billion Rupees. IT’S TIME TO IMPEACH BASIL RAKAPAKSE FOR LYING TO SRI LANKA AND THE WORLD.

    Time has come for the people to give this regime the shock treatment! You can rest assured that MR will never listen to reason. Let us turn this crisis into a blessing in disguise. All opposition forces should unite at this grave hour of the nation. Let us start off by giving Ranil a hard kick on the seat of his pants so that he would go flying and land on Temple Trees, the place where he really belongs to!

    Please watch the following video interview of ex.CJ Sarath N. Silva who explain how President Rajapakse went into Hedging Gamble while Sarat5h Silva warned him resulting One Billion US Dollars loosing to our country. Please copy and paste: http://www.derana.lk/index.php?route=programs/programs/programdetails&pid=85&vid=5582&page=2 Therefore I request Supreme Court or any patriot to take action against president to impeach him for his own decision resulting colossal losses to our country.
