Black Coat ‘brahmins’ and the impeachment probe
Posted on December 12th, 2012


The President had said that he would appoint an independent panel to review the Report of the PSC. Considering this as a weakness, the CJ and theƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  ‘brahmins’ want the President toƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ withdraw the PSC Report immediately, saying that it is an unlawful process. Accorrding to legal experts, the govt had established the PSC by Article 107(3) of the constitution. Therefore, it is recognised by the constitution.

If it was illegal, the CJ and her legal team should have said so on the first day when they came for the PSCƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ meeting. It was only after the CJ was foundƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ guilty of 3 charges out of 5,ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ that she decided to walk away and contest the PSC. Having fled the meeting, the CJ and her team demanded a proposal contained in the draft constitution of 2000 with regard to the procedure for removal of judges to be implemented. This draft constitution was rejectedƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ and in fact some members burnt copies of it in Parliament. The CJ and her team should know better that proposals of a constituion which is not in force cannot be implemented.

In support of the CJ, the ‘brahmins’ are to go on a strike. As usual, the UNP, JVP and TNA are supporting them. In 1978, JR sacked 7 judges. Subsequently, he brought an impeachment probe against CJ Neville Samarakoon. But there was not a hum from the ‘brahmins’. There were no dashing of coconuts to invoke deities, protest marches, strikes or posing for photos with the CJ. Today, they have become very active because their palms have been well oiled by NGO’s, anti-govt forces and so on who are dreaming of a ‘Sri Lankan spring’ !

    Thanks Mr. Samarawera, for your article. After leaving Lankaweb for a while I m now back.

    Glad to see at least some writers agree that CJ as a person must hold herself to the highest esteem, even others including leaders of political parties fail to do so.

    It is also quite a honour to lead a very diificult country like Sri Lanka and independence of the judiciary is paramount. That is the very reason, legal profession and its leaders must not be above law.

    Every person has to pay a prize, when unacceptable behaviour is publicized & scrutinized for the whole world to see.

    Very happy to see your comments & hopefully some good will come out of it at the end.

    Whosoever sponsored the CJ’s impeachment, he had thoroughly and utterly mishandled its tactical procedure just like that insurance for private sector was. In so far as public perception is concerned, the NGOs and Haultsdorf sharks have done a far better job for the CJ in handling her marketing campaign and her strategy.

    So, the first round goes to the CJ. But mark my word; both the President and the CJ cannot stay; one must go. And, it has to be the CJ. She will have to go sooner than later. Those who demand a full withdrawal of PSC report on the President taking a half a step back are undermining his life time experience of political foresight, strategy and acumen. Black coated sharks that stand on roadsides with their boards hanging in their neck will be too heavy for them in a short while. They cannot last even as long as FUTA had. General public dislikes black coats for black coats have been deceiving them and grabbing money (tax free) from them left right and centre daily for too long.

    Lawyers strike for 1 hour.

    Hilarious, after all they drag court cases for decades, so what difference does 1 hour make? The more they drag a case the more they can suck the blood out of their clients.

    Nihal Fernando, thanks for appreciating my comments which I made with the honest humble feeling who has been watching from overseas the tremendous efforts taken by MR,GR,Basil and all patriotic soldiers fully devoting time and lives to safeguard our MOTHERLANKA.But now all have forgotten the then era,how we suffered under the JR,RP and RW the traitors who sold our land to the LTTE murderers.All these UNP,JVP,TNA idiots have forgotten how JR IMPEACHED HON NEVILLE SAMARAKOON UNDER THE SAME CONSTITUTION.THERE WAS NOT A HUM FROM THESE IDIOTS AT THAT TIME.Now all these idiots are being financed by LTTE TAMIL DIASPORAS THRU DIRTY NGOS WHO ARE HELLBENT ON DEFEATING THIS GOVT.

    Mr. Samaraweera – You said in the presentation:

    “It was only after the CJ was found guilty of 3 charges out of 5, that she decided to walk away and contest PSC”. You are dead wrong. If you did not follow the proceedings here is what happened. It was after CJ and other four members walked out, the remaining seven members conducted the investigation and inquired into 5 charges and found her guilty. The balance 9 charges were not taken for investigation.

    So I would earge you to present the facts correctly and argue your case. I appreciate that from anyone, commenting this event.

    The legality of the PSC is debated in a different forum. Let it happen and let us watch the development.

    One other factor, we have to bear in mind is the very fact the CJ and her team of lawyers appeared before the PSC as summoned is a pointer to the recognition of the validity of the very organization set up to investigate. It was by this very “performance” that recognition is accepted and established. In any case CJ and the team defending know that it is not the proper venue to canvass the legality of the PSC. I don’t think they are such fools.

    The walk out took place on different reasons and those are now known. That is why even HE The President is concerned and trying to correct the situation.

    Therefore, in my opinion, we must initiate discussion on the subject matter in a constructive way rather than to give vent to our personal grievances and call names to a class of professionals in the country.
