Thu, Dec 13, 2012, 08:18 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 13, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) says the independent committee proposed by the President to review the report by the parliamentary select committee (PSC) that probed the impeachment motion against the Chief Justice is aimed at prolonging the process.

JVP parliamentary group leader, Anura Kumara Dissanayake said the President was trying to continue with the tragicomedy surrounding the Chief Justice's impeachment process.

He explained that a report by the government or the President would not be independent.

He observed that the President had proceeded with the impeachment process and called for the formation of a PSC ignoring requests made by the Maha Sangha and intellectuals not to go ahead.

According to Dissanayake, the President is now looking at ways to proceed with the impeachment process while overcoming the criticism leveled against the government following the release of the PSC report on the impeachment motion.
