* Sri Lanka facing threat of being isolated by international community - opposition
Sat, Jan 5, 2013, 09:22 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 05, Colombo: Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) says the country is facing the threat of being isolated by the international community due to the government's interference in the judiciary.

UNP parliamentarian Ravi Karunanayaka has said that the government was engaged in a campaign to ridicule the Chief Justice and the judiciary.

He has charged that the government should resign over the impeachment motion brought against the Chief Justice and added that the government needed to show that it had credible evidence to prove the alleged personal and financial misconduct against the Chief Justice.

According to Karunanayaka, the government needs to pay serious attention to the danger of being isolated by the international community.

However, the UNP General Secretary, MP Tissa Attanayake yesterday said the investigation of the impeachment motion against the Chief Justice is a duty of the parliament and since existing legal provisions to investigate an impeachment are insufficient, newer laws should be introduced immediately to empower parliament to carry out such inquiries.
