Sun, Dec 16, 2012, 09:05 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 16, Colombo: A Sri Lankan Minister says that the allegations leveled against some ruling party members of the parliamentary select committee (PSC) that probed the impeachment motion against the Chief Justice that they had insulted Chief Justice Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake could be verified.

Head of the PSC, Environment Minister Anura Priyadarshana Yapa said the allegations could be verified by looking at the PSC proceedings.

The Chief Justice last week through her lawyers informed the Speaker of the parliament that some ruling party members made derogatory comments in Sinhala language calling her a "mad woman".

He explained that the PSC proceedings were recorded by video and by Hansard reporters and the records are in the possession of the parliament.

According to Yapa, the allegations could be laid to rest by looking at the records of the proceedings.

The debate on the PSC report on the impeachment motion is to be taken up when the House convenes again on the 8th of next month.
