* Court grants permission to access bank records of Sri Lanka's former Chief Justice
Mon, Aug 25, 2014, 08:20 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Aug 25, Colombo: A Sri Lankan court today granted permission to a panel of computer experts to inspect the bank accounts of former Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake.

Colombo Chief Magistrate Gihan Pilapitiya granted permission to access the accounts of the former Chief Justice at the National Development Bank (NDB) when the defense counsel of Bandaranayake informed the court that a panel of computer experts is ready to inspect the documents.

Accordingly, the investigations will take place on September 3, 4, and 5.

The NDB had appealed against an earlier order by the Colombo Chief Magistrate to grant Bandaranayake's legal counsel access to documents relevant to her case recorded in the computer system of the bank.

Shirani Bandaranayake, the 43rd Chief Justice of Sri Lanka, was impeached by Parliament and then removed from office by President Mahinda Rajapaksa in January 2013.

She was accused of a number of charges including financial impropriety and interfering in legal cases, all of which she has denied.
