Sri Lanka has sent a strong signal to the international community that the case is closed on what were pending administration of justice issues in Sri Lanka, with the appointment of a new Chief Justice.

Professor G. L. Peiris Minister of External Affairs, has called the Canadian PremierƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s call for the reinstatement of the former Chief Justice almost impertinentƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢ and others such as minister W .D. J Senevitratne, Minister of Public Administration and Home Affairs told this newspaper that the new CJ has been appointed by constitutional process which is the legal and constitutional prerogative of the President.

The removal of the Chief Justice was concluded in keeping with the Constitution of Sri Lanka, not any other rule of law, and a new Chief Justice has been appointed to put the system of administration of justice in order, which was absolutely an internal matter, Mr Senevirathe explained.

UN Human Rights Commissioner Ms Navinathan Pillai has also made statements with regard to the appointment of the new Chief Justice, and this has been taken exception to as both the impeachment and the appointment of the new Chief Justice were carried out as per the Constitution.

External Affairs Ministry Secretary Karunathilaka Amunugama said, as far as Sri Lanka is concerned the problems that affected administration of Justice are now over as with the appointment of a new Chief Justice.

External Affairs Minister Prof G. L.
