Dec 27, Colombo: Lawyers of Sri Lanka Chief Justice Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake have accused the government of carrying out baseless propaganda programs against their client.

The lawyers issuing a statement have accused the government of carrying out an organized series of baseless propaganda programs in state electronic media against the Chief Justice, the Judiciary and leading lawyers.

"It is abundantly clear that these are not isolated attacks but meticulously orchestrated attacks coerced and carried out at the behest of highest in authority," the lawyers have said.

"These are clearly intended to pressure the Chief Justice to summarily resign, because the Government is well aware that the entire impeachment process is irregular and the Chief Justice cannot be lawfully removed from office," the statement has further noted.

Dr. Bandaranayke's writ application filed before the Court of Appeal against the parliamentary select committee that probed the impeachment motion against her is to be taken up again on January 3rd.
