SC Ruling On Divineguma And Northern Governor Issue Delivered To Speaker

By Colombo Telegraph

A determination by the Supreme Court of Sri Lanka on the issue of the Northern Governor’s right to endorse the Divi Neguma bill in the absence of a provincial council in the region was reportedly handed over to the Speaker of Parliament earlier today.

The deadline for the Court’s ruling on the issue was set to lapse on October 31. Judges adjourned court proceedings at Supreme Court a few minutes of sittings due to ‘special circumstances.’ A politician closely following the issue said he had unofficial information that the ruling was handed over to the Speaker’s office in the afternoon.

    Capitulation means dropping the impeachment move. It also means driving the last nail on the coffin of democracy. However, the political eunuch leading the main opposition would not mind it either way. What an unfortunate country of masses who are asses and so called intellectuals who are self-centred hypocrites!

    If the CJ is worth defending against impeachment she would have thrown out the DiviNeguma Bill which is a most Dangerous bill for democracy in Lanka because it violates the people’s existing Right to Information and Equality, when that appalling bill first came up – rather than merely playing ball with it!
    Now its too late for her and the people of Lanka!
