* Impeachment motion against Sri Lanka's Chief Justice not for truth and justice - JVP
Thu, Nov 15, 2012, 10:36 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 15, Colombo: The impeachment motion presented against the Chief Justice by the Sri Lankan government is not aimed at truth, justice or fair play, the country's Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna says.

JVP parliamentary group leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake said the government has destroyed the institutions that the people were expected to believe as being "supreme."

Dissanayake remarked that the real intention behind the Chief Justice's impeachment motion could be read between the lines.

He noted that the Rajapaksa government has "insulted, slandered, threatened and attacked the institutions that they wanted to intimidate and control."

"We all have a real struggle in our hands. It is a struggle to protect the rights and the justice for the people. We call upon the people to come forward for this struggle," Dissanayake said.

He added that the impeachment motion presented to parliament is believed to contain incorrect details.

"Parliament rules and regulations state that false information could not be tabled in the House," Dissanayake observed.

He noted that while there is a massive discussion in society about the impeachment motion against the Chief Justice, the result of the matter is already known.

"A play is being staged to justify this decision," Dissanayake said.

However, he said that the people needed to unite and fight against the current system.
