Sun, Feb 17, 2013, 10:21 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 17, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Supreme Court justice P.A. Ratnayake has decided to retire before his term expires, judiciary sources said.

Justice Ratnayake has submitted his retirement papers to the Chief Justice Mohan Peiris on February 15.

The judge has come to this decision despite that he has several years more to work before retiring, sources say.

Some local media reports said the Justice Ratnayake's resignation was as part of the controversy due to the appointment of Chief Justice Mohan Peiris.

According to Sri Lanka Constitution, a Supreme Court judge's term length is until retirement at the age of 65 years.

Justice P.A. Ratnayake P.C. was appointed as a Judge of the Supreme Court in 2008 after an over three decade service in the Attorney General's Department.

He is a grand nephew of Sir Baron Jayatillake, a national hero who was Vice President of the Legislative Council of Ceylon; the Minister for Home Affairs and Leader of the House of the State Council of Ceylon; and Representative of Government of Ceylon in New Delhi.
