* Sri Lanka Bar Association to resume normal work under the New Chief Justice
Wed, Jan 16, 2013, 11:22 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 16, Colombo: The Bar Association of Sri Lanka (BASL) will resume its normal work procedure under the new Chief Justice.

BASL Secretary Sanjaya Gamage has said that the Association had never indicated that it would not work under the new Chief Justice and it would continue with its work.

Gamage has clarified the Association's position saying the BASL had only said it would not participate in the ceremony to welcome the new Chief Justice.

The Association earlier said that it will not welcome the successor of former Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake in the "wrongfully created vacancy consequent to the impeachment against her."

According to Gamage, there was no necessity to discuss the impeachment of the former Chief Justice during a meeting between the President and representatives of the BASL since the President had already signed the document removing the Chief Justice by then.
