Working to a political agenda, Chief Justice Dr Shirani Bandaranayake has joined hands with a group of traitors, Public Relations and Public Affairs Minister Mervyn Silva and several intellectuals said yesterday.

Minister Silva said the Chief Justice was acting a political role though she has been found guilty by the Parliamentary Select Committee in its investigation on the impeachment motion signed by 117 parliamentarians.

He said the “cat was out of the bag” with Sarath Fonseka’s invitation to the Chief Justice to join politics. Minister Silva said there were a number of contradictions in the statement on the alleged shooting incident at UNP parliamentarian President’s Counsel Wijedasa Rajapakshe’s residence.

Bar Association of Sri Lanka vice president and senior attorney-at-law Anoma Goonathilaka said no fault was found in the process of filing impeachment motions against previous Chief Justices, but the impeachment motion against Chief Justice Dr Shirani Bandaranayake was condemned. She said a few were attempting to create chaos in the country at a time when peace was achieved after defeating terrorism.

Dr Nihal Sri Amarasekara said the process of the impeachment motion is in accordance with the provisions of the constitution adding that it cannot be challenged.
