Thu, Dec 13, 2012, 12:48 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 13, Colombo: Sri Lanka major opposition United National Party (UNP) has requested President Mahinda Rajapaksa to take actions to bring a bill in parliament regarding the removal of Supreme Court judges.

UNP national list MP and the President of Bar Association of Sri Lanka Wijedasa Rajapaksa has set forth a proposal in this regard as a private member proposal and the UNP requests the bill to be brought as an urgent act in parliament, according to a communiqué of the party.

UNP sources say that the working committee is of the view that the process of removal of apex court judges should be on par with international laws and norms.

According to UNP, the present constitutional process on the impeachment of the Chief Justice has many inadequacies and the impeachment motion pending now has caused a controversy between judiciary and the executive.
