Dec 13, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Attorney General Palitha Fernando today has argued before a tri-member Supreme Court panel that the petitions seeking a constitutional interpretation on the parliamentary select committee (PSC) appointed to probe impeachment motion against the Chief Justice Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake are flawed.
The Attorney General expressed these views when seven petitions forwarded from the Court of Appeal to the Supreme Court were examined today.
He said that although the lower courts could consult upper courts for interpretations, it was not always apt to do so and pointed out that the Court of Appeal could seek advice of the Attorney General.
The Attorney General argued for the dismissal of the petitions.
The panel of judges presided by justice Nimal Gamini Amaratunga postponed hearing to Friday, December 14.
