Sri Lanka’s Chief Justice’s Life In Danger – JSC

By Colombo Telegraph

“A situation has arisen where there is a danger to the security of all of us and our families beginning from the person holding the highest position in the judicial system,” Judicial Service Commission (JSC) Secretary Manjula Tillekaratne said yesterday.

Manjula Tillekaratne said yesterday there was a danger to the security of all of them and their families beginning from the person holding the highest position in the judicial system.

“I absolutely reject the malicious and baseless allegations levelled against me and the Judicial Services Commission these days. We see the only reason for this malicious mudslinging campaign was the media statement issued by me on the directions of the Judicial Services Commission,” Manjula Tillekaratne said.

Lawyers protest

In the Cabinet meeting on Wednesday President Mahinda Rajapaksa had discussed the possibility of initiating disciplinary action against the JSC Secretary over a complaint .

Meanwhile, the Lawyers Association attached to the Colombo Chief Magistrate’s Court yesterday staged a protest at Hulftsdorp over the mudslinging campaign against the JSC secretary.

A large number of lawyers who participated in the protest urged the authorities not to interfere in the judiciary saying it could lead to the end of democracy in Sri Lanka.
