Demos as CJ heads for Parliament

Demonstrations were held both in support and against Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake as she left the Supreme Court premises this morning to head to parliament to appear before the Parliament Select Committee (PSC) on the impeachment motion against her.

Government supported protesters were seen outside the Supreme Court waiting with placards to jeer the Chief Justice.

Several people including former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka were meanwhile outside the court supporting the Chief Justice.

Demonstrations were staged outside parliament as well both in support and against the Chief Justice as she arrived to meet the PSC members.
