Dec 08, Colombo: Sri Lanka's business chamber has expressed concern over the proceedings of the impeachment motion against the country's Chief Justice.

The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce said in a statement that it has been closely following the current impeachment process relating to the Chief Justice and urged the all three branches of the government to work in harmony.

The Chamber in a statement said it strongly believes that "mutual respect and trust between the Executive, Legislature and the Judiciary, and the Rule of Law are essential prerequisites that are crucial for rapid economic development and for the achievement of development targets that we have set upon ourselves to achieve."

"Therefore, the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce urges all three organs of the State to act with care and caution to ensure that the comity between the organs of State is maintained at all times, in the National interest," the statement said.
