|UNP PSC members will not appear in Court of Appeal today|
Impeachment against the Chief Justice Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake
Sri Lanka’s main opposition, the United National Party (UNP) members, representing the Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) that probed allegations against Chief Justice, Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake last month, have decided not to appear in Court of Appeal today. The members representing the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) and the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), however, will make their representations to Court.
UNP General Secretary, Tissa Attanayake, said yesterday “We will not attend court tomorrow as it is a matter concerning parliament. Our leader will be making a special statement on this”
“This does not mean that we have changed our opposition on the impeachment ruling. We still maintain that it was an unfair trial”, Mr. Attanayake added.
The Court of Appeal issued notices to the 11 PSC members to appear in court today.
