‘We Hope Decision Of The Court Of Appeal Will Be Respected And Complied With’ – UK Bar

By Colombo Telegraph

The Bar Human Rights Committe of England and Wales voices concern at the circumstances surrounding the impeachment of the Chief Justice of Sri Lanka, Shirani Bandaranayake, and at reports of attacks against the judiciary and the legal profession within Sri Lanka.

Chair BHRC - Mark Muller QC,

“We call on the Government of Sri Lanka to observe respect for the independence of the judiciary, and not to act on the report of the Parliamentary Select Committee until these concerns have been addressed.” says BHRC.

“We note that the Chief Justice has applied to the Court of Appeal to quash findings of the PSC. The application is to be heard on 3 January, but in the meanwhile Court of Appeal has advised the relevant authorities not to act in derogation of the rights of the Chief Justice until the application is heard and concluded. We hope that the decision of the Court of Appeal will be respected and complied with.” the BHRC further says.

    We should be grateful to the Bar Human Rights of Committee for their concern over the the present threat to the independence of the our judiciary. Bur the Executive is so heady with power, I don’t think that he is in a mood to listen to reason. I heard even today a turncoat Minister insult the Chief Justice. This government needs some sort of `shock treatment’, not counsel or sermons!

      Maybe a couple of “Somaramas” can come forward to give the appropriate ‘SHOCK TREATMENT’ ???

      Not shock treatment but a fatal shock is what is required to get rid of the head of the dictator clan. Nothing else will work.

    This is a good one.

    It is only few days ago that the MPs rejected outright some ruling made by a three judge panel in this dudes neck of the woods.

    Didn’t note the details,because their affairs don’t excite me.

    Someone else here who has seen the details may perhaps enlighten the rest,specially the ones who insist on nothing but the Best of British.,

    When the time is right people will witness a repeat of the history. Tirants like Premadasa never would have dreamt that they were destined to face an unthinkable end to their life.

    The despotic megalomaniac and saviour of the German peoples HE Adolf Hitler and others of his ilk too were successful for a while and a majority of Germans were very proud of him.

    This is a HYDRA or Star fish like with many tentacles that automatically regrow that the coalition of the 30 odd western powers will be needed with the regional super power spear heading both overtly and covertly to be rid of the deepening roots of the Red block menace as well, unlike and though somewhat similar to removing VP menace and his followers.

      Who could blame the Germans or Hitler when the first world war agreements had them losing a lot of their territory and the Jewish Bankers moving Gernam money into the West? If you read one side of the story you will still be a half wit. Red what history really has to say about the 1929 Bank crash and the real reason for the Second world war. History according to the Victor powers is really a whole load of myth and the Russians were never given their due for mauling the German armies in the Russian Winter. The “Brave” Americans entered the war long after the “begining of the end” had begun.

    This statement has directly placed the issue in the Govts court. If not heeded the next step is to directly condemn the govt and call for removal from the commonwealth.

    The whole country is run by MARA, GOTA, BARA AND CHAMA RAJAPAKSE ENTERPRISES INC…….The rest of the Parliament is occupied by PIN PADI VANDIBATTAYAS INCURRING BILLIONS OF LOSSES ON THE CORPORATIONS THEY RUN.
    ALSO EVER INCREASING PRICES OF ESSENTIAL GOODS AND OTHER ESSENTIAL SERVICES ON DAILY BASIS WITHOUT A LIMIT.

    EVER SINCE WE GOT INDEPENDENCE THESE UNEDUCATED PARLIAMENT POLITICAL THUGS RUINED EVERYTHING WHAT THE BRITISH GAVE US, INCLUDING PLANTATION, EDUCATION, HEALTH, ECONOMY, SOCIETY, AND BROUGHT COMMUNAL AND RELIGIOUS DISHARMONY AND ALSO SUPPRESSED PEOPLE’S ECONOMIC INDEPENDENCE AND PROGRESS TO KEEP THEM UNDER THEIR POLITICAL WINGS.

    UNP RW is the biggest opposition Pay earner with RW getting Rs:86 million annual salary (as per Tiran Alles parliament speech)….with other benefits that we don’t know. Ranil was neve ever recommended by his uncle JRJ to get into politics. May be JR knew about Ranil’s ineficency(Longest looser and longest opposition leader). Also Ranil may be educated and knows about the economy and world issues. But he simply does not have the charisma, the Guts the nag the inner confidence, the perseverence to be a true leader towards the Party, towards the voters, towards the country and the world. I am telling this with confidence. Look at the mirror yourself. Mirror won’t tell lies.

    I am a strong UNPer and also my Generation. But I will say JR at the age of 80 yrs showed more spirited, than present day Ranil. RW IS SIMPLY A WALKING DEAD.

    It’s time for Ranil to leave politics Gracefully before kicked out with Disgrace.
    After all RW do not have any children to take care or give inheritence.
    ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

    Therefore it’s good time 2013 early January for Ranil to say Good bye to Politics and Give to a YOUNG BLOOD WITHOUT DELAY.

    As citizens we want want to know “WHO APPROVES THIS HUGE PAYROLL AND PERKS”…..and the current MP’s salaries and perks given by the Treasury Department. This is a must and if CT could work on it will be great.

    THEREFORE PARLIAMENT WHICH SAY (uttthareethara) SUPREME, IS THE BIGGEST THIEVE’S DEN IN THE COUNTRY. IT IS COMPRISED WITH SOME LOWEST EDUCATED DONKEYS IN THE WORLD…..COMPRISED WITH GRADE 8 DROP OUTS, THUGS,THIEVES, CROOKS, COMMISSION KAKKAS, EVER FAMOUS PARTY JUMPERS, PANDAM KARAYAS ETC.

    Therefore NO WONDER RW WANTS HIS PARLIAMENT CLUB MEMBERSHIP TO BE SUPREME……..TO KEEP HIS HUGE PAYROLL (86 Million year) WITHOUT DOING A SINGLE WORK TO THE COUNTRY OR CITIZEN. WHAT CAN YOU CALL THIS OTHER THAN PIN PADI, SUMMA PEOPLE’S MONEY EARNING RESPECTABLE BEGGERS.

    What qualification Anura Bandaranaike…..who was a Grade 10 dropout…..with no Law knowledge, jumping from one party to another and from one Parliament portfolio to another …..Know about LAW to interpret CONSTITUTION…….another parliament MUT…who is RANIL’S MENTOR.

    WHAT WE CITIZEN NEED ONLY A TRANSPARENT, UNBIASED, OPEN AND JUST HEARING…..NOT A CROOKS KANGAROO COURT HEARING.

    WE ARE THANKFUL FOR TNA, AND JVP FOR THEIR SUPPORT FOR US, CITIZEN’S JUSTICE BY APPEARING IN APPEAL’S COURT TOMORROW. AND WE WILL SUPPORT YOU IN FUTURE. NOW WE KNOW WHO REPRESENT TRUE CITIZEN’S DEMOCRAZY,NEEDS AND RIGHTS.

    ALSO JUDICIARY SHOULD BRING LAWSUIT FOR ALL THE PARLIAMENT CROOKS WHO EARNED ILLICIT MONEY…..ROBBING COUNTRY AND OUR MONEY.

    ALSO I HERD GOVT. GOONS PLAN TO DISRUPT TOMORROW’S HEARING…..SO MAKE EARLY PLANS TO STOP THEM…AND IF YOU COULD BROADCAST ON LIVE TV/ RADIO IS HELPFUT.

    WE CITIZEN ARE WITH YOU JUDICIARY AND YOU HAVE TO CLEAN UP THE MESS THAT PREVIOUS JUDICIARY, AND EX. CJ’S SARATH AND ASOKA SILVA WHO BROUGHT DISGRACE ON JUDICIARY.

    GOOD LUCK TO YOU CJ,JUDICIARY,APPEAL’S COURT, JVP, TNA, GEN.SARATH FONSEKA AND CITIZEN.PLEASE BUILD BRIDGES WITH WEST AND EAST. DON’T ISOLATE THEM LIKE MARA.

    ALSO JUDICIARY AND CITIZEN SHOULD KEEP A CLOSE CONNECTION WITH BOTH WESTERN AND EASTERN COUNTRIES WHO HELPED US IN THE PAST AND WILL HELP US IN FUTURE ALSO WITHOUT ANY STRINGS ATTACHE…..WHICH GOSL SYSTEMATICALLY TRYING TO DISTANCE AND ISOLATE THEM TO KEEP HOLD ONTO DICTATORIAL REGIME.

    The Lawyers and law makers of the United Kingdom should sweep before their own doorsteps before they poit fingers at those down the road.
