The 4 writ petitions requesting the proscription of the parliamentary select committee appointed to investigate the impeachment against Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake was taken up by the Supreme Court today.

The Appeals Court moved that the 4 petitions should be presented before the Supreme Court in order to obtain an interpretation.

The Appeals Court also instructed the registrar to obtain the opinion of the Attorney General regarding these petitions.

However, when the petitions were taken up at the Supreme Court it was stated that the registrar had not forwarded the petitions to the attorney general.

Our court correspondent stated that the 3 judge bench ruled that an interpretation cannot be given with regards to the petitions without the opinion of the attorney general.

Therefore the 3 judge panel has instructed the attorney general to appear before court at 1.30pm and present his opinion.
