The Appeals Court today stated that charges levelled against the Parliamentary Select Committee appointed to investigate the impeachment motion filed against the Chief Justice should be initially redirected to the same PSC itself.

The Appeals Court decision in this regard was delivered today when it examined two petitions which called for the nullification of the investigation of the impeachment motion filed against the Current Chief justice in office by a parliamentary select committee.

The appeals court also noted that charges alleging that the PSC itself was biased should be re-directed to the very same PSC.

A trial at bar headed by Chairman of the Appeals Court S. Skandaraja who examined today's petitions ruled that  pleas in this regard could only be submitted by parties affected by an impeachment & not by a third party.
