Sun, Jan 6, 2013, 12:23 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 06, Colombo: A Sri Lankan government minister says that International Non-Governmental Organizations (INGOs) that once supported the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) are now trying to use the impeachment motion against the Chief Justice to damage the country's image.

General Secretary of governing United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA), Minister Susil Premajayantha has said that the government will not give into the whims of such INGOs.

He has accused the INGOs of trying to continue to damage the country's image and this time through the impeachment motion against the Chief Justice.

The government had encountered tougher challenges when fighting the LTTE and ending the war, the Minister has noted.

According to Premajayantha, those who supported the LTTE are now dashing coconuts showing solidarity with the Chief Justice.

He has added that the Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) that probed allegations against the Chief Justice acted in accordance with the Constitution.
