Wed, Nov 7, 2012, 10:09 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 07, Colombo: Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) says the judiciary is threatened when judgments are given against expectations.

Former UNP deputy leader and parliamentarian Karu Jayasuriya told the media that the government has posed a great threat to judicial independence and there won't be democracy in the absence of an independent judiciary.

He warned that a dictatorship similar to in countries like Zimbabwe and North Korea would be created in such a scenario.

Jayasuriya pointed out that there was deterioration in the Public Service, Police, Judiciary, University Education and many other institutions. The Attorney General's Department is under the Executive President, he added.

According to the UNP legislator, the opposition together with the people needs to raise a voice in order to protect judicial independence.
