* Objections raised against two government members of Sri Lanka's PSC on top judge
Wed, Dec 5, 2012, 12:01 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 05, Colombo: The parliamentary select committee (PSC) probing the impeachment motion against Sri Lanka's Chief Justice Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake is to decide on objections raised against two governing party members in the committee.

Lawyers representing the Chief Justice have raised objections against two members of the PSC, Ministers Dr. Rajitha Senaratne and Wimal Weerawansa.

The Chief Justice's lawyers had objected to Dr. Senaratne on the grounds that a fundamental rights petition filed a few months back by his wife Dr. Sujatha Senaratne was heard by a panel headed by the Chief Justice and was refused leave to proceed.

The lawyers have objected to Weerawansa since an appeal filed by him had been rejected in April 2010 and another appeal by him on another case is still pending before a panel headed by the Chief Justice.

The PSC is to reportedly decide on the objections on the 6th.
