The Court of Appeal today contemplated that if those who dishonoured the Court by cheering inside the court room soon after the decision on Gotabhaya Rajapaksa was declared are found to be legal professionals of the bar, they would have to face legal repercussions in due course.

It was seen soon after the order on the writ petition was delivered by Court of Appeal president Justice Yasantha Kodagoda, some part of the audience in the court room reacted to the decision by cheering. This sudden reaction caught the attention of Justice Kodagoda and he said if lawyers were among those who cheered, then they will be dealt with the necessary laws over their behaviour as professionals.

However, it was also seen that Romesh de Silva PC was very quick to signal the audience not to disturb and dishonour the court. He also apologized to the Bench for the behaviour of some persons and highly deplored that behaviour.

    The Justices and the courts should be more human. It is normal sometimes through exirtement of good news some one may forget the surround and react as a noermal human being. It is wrong if it happens regularly. But if it happens at an occasion as it was the Justices should be considerate and and accept human reaction to good news.
