Supreme Court judge Priyantha Jayawardana has withdrawn from the bench which is hearing the contempt of court case against former chief justice, Sarath Nanda Silva.

When the petition was taken for hearing this morning, Justice Jayawardana stated that he would withdraw from the bench on personal grounds.

The other members of the bench are Justices Murdu Fernando and Gamini Amarasekera.

The two judges postponed the hearing of the petition to May 8th, thereafter.

Our correspondent stated that the respondent, Sarath N Silva appeared before Court today.

Three petitioners including Professor Chandragupta Thenuwara have filed this petition citing that Sarath N Silva had committed contempt of court in a statement he made during a public rally held at Maradana Junction on December 3rd, last year.
