CJ Asks IGP To Appear In Court

Jan 28, 2011 8:07:34 AM - thesundayleader.lk

Chief Justice Ashoka de Silva had today (28) asked IGP Mahinda Balasuriya to appear before court on February 11 to give evidence on a contempt of court case.

A three member Supreme Court bench had issued notice on the IGP after considering a petition filed by a SSP from Ampara, J.R. Jayawardena, who is currently suspended.

Jayawardena had informed court that the although the IGP had pledged to the Supreme Court on December 1, 2010 that he would be reinstated as an SSP, the IGP had acted in contravention of the by suspending Jayawardena once again on December 24, 2010.

The IGP has therefore been summoned before the Supreme Court to give an explanation.
