* Sri Lanka's Bar Association to honor its resolutions and not welcome the new Chief Justice
Sun, Jan 20, 2013, 08:02 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 20, Colombo: The Bar Association of Sri Lanka (BASL) says that it would honor the resolutions adopted by the Association and not welcome the new Chief Justice.

President of BASL, parliamentarian and President's Counsel Wijedasa Rajapakshe has said that there was no change in the Association's stance of not welcoming the new Chief Justice appointed by the government.

The BASL last month passed a resolution to refrain from welcoming a new Chief Justice appointed by the government on the basis of a vacancy created by removing Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake through an impeachment process that has been held unconstitutional by the Supreme Court.

Preparations are underway to organize the ceremonial sittings of the new Chief Justice Mohan Peiris.

The ceremonial sitting is a felicitation ceremony of a judge of the Supreme Court or the Court of Appeal.
