* Main opposition of Sri Lanka to commence campaign against removal of the Chief Justice
Mon, Jan 14, 2013, 11:03 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 14, Colombo: Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) says the party would commence a campaign against the removal of Chief Justice Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake together with other political parties.

UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake has said that the UNP would initiate a discussion with other political parties to decide on a campaign against the Chief Justice's removal.

He has observed that the UNP has already commenced discussions with opposition political parties on the next course of action.

Attanayake has added that parliament had not made any request from the President to remove the Chief Justice and a resolution was therefore never included in the Order Book.

He has explained that what was included in the Order Book was the request by 117 MPs to appoint a Select Committee to look into the 14 charges made against the Chief Justice.
