The Sri Lanka Bar Association stated today that the independence of the Judiciary has been intimidated due to some media reports published with regard to certain judges and court procedures.

Addressing a media conference held in Colombo today, Bar Association President, President Counsel Jeffrey Alagarathnam said his organization expects to take legal action against the media institutions which try to intimidate judges.

Meanwhile, a senior lawyer and President Counsel Hemantha Warnakulasuriya made a revelation yesterday that the telephones of certain judges have been tapped.  

Addressing a media conference organized by the Joint Opposition, its member MP Sisira Jayakody said that an inquiry should be held in connection with the allegation.
