Judicial activities have been hindered island wide as lawyers engage in a strike protesting against the parliamentary debate regarding the impeachment report.

According to correspondents judicial activities in the districts of Galle, Nuwara Eliya and Northern Province have been hindered.

Meanwhile, the Sri Lanka Independent Lawyers Association stated that it will not be joining the Bar Association of Sri Lanka in their strike.
