Jan 07, Colombo: A Sri Lankan government minister says that lawyers and members of the judiciary who act against the legislature should be hauled before the parliamentary Privileges Committee.

Addressing a special press briefing National Freedom Front (NFF) Leader and Housing and Construction Minister, Wimal Weerawansa has said that all lawyers and any one speaks or acts against the legislature should be summoned before the Privileges Committee and dealt with severely.

He said the judgments against the parliament were a part of an international conspiracy against the government and powers of the parliament will be used against the judges after the impeachment process ends.

Weerawansa was also a member of the parliamentary select committee (PSC) that probed the impeachment motion against the Chief Justice.

The Minister asserted that he would continue to speak of the shortcomings in the judiciary and prison sentences would not stop him from speaking the truth and pointing out the faults in the judiciary.
