Fmr. CJ case dismissed

A civil suit filed against former Chief Justice Sarath N. Silva alleging that he misused his power and avenged personal animosities in his capacity as the CJ was dismissed by the Colombo District Court with costs today. Dismissing the civil suit filed by B.K.A. Pathmasiri Balasuriya of Bahirawakanda in Kandy, the District Court ordered that the former CJ be paid five times the tax costs of the case, considering the frivolous and vexatious nature of the action. Mr. Balasuriya had filed this action in September 2009 citing Sarath N. Silva of Gregory’s Road, Colombo 7 as the defendant and sought an order to declare that the former CJ had misused his powers and acted with malice and had remanded him for 294 days after having him arrested on a false allegation. Mr. Balasuriya said he had estimated the suffering he underwent having to be in remand and the damage caused to his reputation at Rs.10 million.
