* Sri Lanka Marxist party expresses concern over government's clash with judiciary
Mon, Dec 3, 2012, 08:29 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 03, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) says the government's actions would cause further inconveniences to the country before the international community.

Government's on-going impeachment motion against the Chief Justice through parliament and efforts to sideline the Judiciary would make things difficult for the country in Geneva next March, JVP General Secretary Tilvin Silva said.

The government needed to be mindful not to act in a manner that would allow imperialists to intervene in Sri Lanka's affairs, he stressed.

He added that as a member of the Commonwealth countries, Sri Lanka has not given a hearing to the Commonwealth Judges and Lawyers Associations.

According to Silva, the Speaker's recent statement in parliament that all notices issued by the Supreme Court to him and members of the Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) will be nullified, is detrimental.

He questioned whether parliament is going to continue without taking orders from the Supreme Court.

Silva added that the JVP will hold mass campaigns and awareness programs against moves by the government that would affect the people.
