Supreme Court justice Shirani Thilakawardhana the Chairman of the panel of judges appointed to probe the Fundamental Rights Petitions filed with concern to the appointment of Chief justices has postponed the hearing of all petitions until the 11th of June.

This was when 6 FRP's in this regard were taken up before the 9 judge panel of the Supreme Court today.

The panel had postponed the hearing of the FRP's since Supreme Court Judge K. Shripawan had opted out of the hearings.

Supreme Court Judge K. Shripawan was appointed instead of Justice S.I. Imam who retired earlier.
