SC overturns ruling on Ex CJ

2014 Feb 24

The Supreme Court (SC) today overturned a ruling made by the Appeals Court on the impeachment of former Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake.

The Appeals Court had ruled against the findings of a Parliament Select Committee which impeached the former Chief Justice.

However the Attorney General’s department challenged the decision of the Appeal’s Court through a petition filed in the Supreme Court.

A five judge bench of the Supreme Court today ruled as null and void the decision taken by the Appeals Court on the impeachment.
