* Sri Lanka High Court judges deny they decided to remain silent about CJ impeachment
Wed, Nov 7, 2012, 01:02 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 07, Colombo: Justice Shiran Gunaratna, the secretary of the Association of Sri Lanka High Court Judges says the high court judges have not decided to remain silent over the impeachment motion against the Chief Justice Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake as some media reports have claimed.

Local media yesterday reported that the Association of High Court Judges had decided not to make any statement or take any action over the impeachment motion against Chief Justice Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake that had been handed over to parliament by governing party members.

The reports further said the decision was taken at a special meeting of the executive committee of the Association of High Court Judges.

However, speaking to the local Sinhala daily The Divaina today the secretary of the association said that the executive committee of the association that met on November 05 had not taken a decision and the issues that would arise with the legality of the case need to be further studied before making a decision.

The media report was not based on a statement of the association, he added.

The secretary further said that the executive committee of the association would meet again on November 17 to discuss the issue.
