* Abuse hurled at Sri Lanka Chief Justice at the PSC expunged - Opposition MP
Fri, Dec 28, 2012, 07:54 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 28, Colombo: Sri Lanka main opposition United National Party (UNP) says that the abusive remarks hurled at Chief Justice Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake at the parliamentary select committee (PSC) that probed the impeachment charges against her have been expunged from the records.

UNP parliamentarian, Attorney Ajith P. Perera has told a news conference that the statement by the head of the PSC, Minister Anura Priyadarshana Yapa that everything discussed at the PSC was on records was misleading.

He has observed that apart from the abusive comments hurled at the Chief Justice and her lawyers, even the abusive words used at opposition members have also been expunged.

According to Perera, these incidents are therefore not recorded in the Hansard (the Official Report of parliament) since they have been expunged from the records.
