* Motion against President's request to rush SC verdict on dissolution of parliament
Tue, Dec 11, 2018, 01:09 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 11, Colombo: A motion has been filed before the Supreme Court against the President Maithripala Sirisena's request to expedite the verdict of the petitions on the dissolution of the parliament.

Attorney-at-law Aruna Laksiri has filed the motion.

Through his motion the petitioner says that the President's request to the Chief Justice Nalin Perera through the Attorney General to expedite the verdict on the petitions filed against the dissolution of parliament was publicized in the news media.

Attorney-at-law Aruna Laksiri said that such requests would lead to an impediment in examining the case.

The President can make such a request only through inquiries on a specific interpretation under clause 126 of the Constitution, he pointed out.

Accordingly, Attorney Laksiri has requested the Supreme Court to issue an independent judgment by holding a proper hearing of the case.
