Dec 14, Colombo: Supreme Court of Sri Lanka today announced that the decisions regarding the petitions forwarded to the apex court seeking constitutional interpretation of the Parliamentary Select Committee for the impeachment of the Chief Justice would be delivered to the Appellate Court soon.

Seven petitions forwarded by the Court of Appeal were taken up for examination today. The Attorney General who is one of the respondents completed his submissions today. The Counsels appearing for the petitioners also made submissions.

Attorney General Palitha Fernando yesterday argued that the petitions seeking a constitutional interpretation on the PSC were flawed.

The tri-member bench, presided by Justice Nimal Gamini Amaratunga and comprising Justice K Sri Pavan and Justice Priyasath Dep heard the petitions.

The Court of Appeal referred the petitions seeking to restrain the PSC to the Supreme Court for constitutional interpretations.

The Attorney General yesterday said the lower court should have sought his advice before referring the petitions to the Supreme Court.
