‘SUMMON JUDGES IN CONTEMPT OF house’

* Make them answerable

* Only CJ who used Judiciary to favour husband

All judges who violated Parliamentary privilege by issuing orders to Parliament should be summoned before the Parliamentary Privileges Committee, National Freedom Front (NFF) leader and Construction, Engineering Services, Housing and Common Amenities Minister Wimal Weerawansa said.

Addressing a press conference at the NFF Headquarters in Battaramulla, Jayanthipura yesterday, the minister referred to former Speaker Anura Bandaranaike’s ruling that the Judiciary cannot issue orders to Parliament.

“Is it correct for the Chief Justice to selectively cite the Constitution to her advantage ?” he asked.

“Issuing orders against Parliament is an act unbecoming of judges of court,” the minister said. Weerawansa said the President had clearly requested his ministers and MPs not to discuss the impeachment issue in public.

“However, the Chief Justice’s supporters are continuing to issue media statements that he and Minister Rajitha Senaratne had cases heard by the Chief Justice and was thus biased as members of the Parliamentary Select Committee,” he said. “The Select Committee only played an investigative role and did not sit as judicial officers .The backers of the Chief justice have clearly failed to comprehend this,” the minister said. Weerawansa said journalists have the opportunity to criticise any thing said in Parliament. “But can they criticise the Judiciary?” he asked. The minister said international conspiracies are afoot to harm the country’s stability.

Persons like Sumanthiran, Paikiasothy Saravanamuttu, Weliamuna and Wijedasa Rajapakse, the TNA and the UNP have joined forces with the Chief Justice in this conspiracy along with the JVP, he said. “Whatever anyone says, we will not cease to do our duty by the motherland, ” the minister said.“She is the one and only Chief Justice in the world who used the Judiciary to favour her husband. She is the Chief Justice who went against two interim injunctions to secure a home for her sister in the Golden Key case,” he said.
