Oct 09, Colombo: Sri Lanka's judges who have halted court proceedings since Monday to protest the attack on a colleague will return to work from Wednesday, the Judicial Services Association said.
The Judicial Services Association during a special general assembly held today at the Colombo Hultsdorf Court Complex has decided to end the boycott of their duties and return to work from tomorrow.
A large number of magistrates and district judges from all over the island participated in the meeting.
The judges and lawyers across the country refrained from work to protest the attack on the High Court judge and the Secretary of the Judicial Service Commission (JSC), Manjula Tilakaratne by unidentified attackers over the weekend.
The Association comprising judges across the country strongly condemned the attack and said that they have taken certain decisions regarding independence of the judiciary and the decline of the rule of law.
