Constitution violated in appointing Manjula Tillekeratne – GL

 

The Constitution has been violated in appointing the Secretary to the Judiciary Service Commission Manjula tillekertne to that position says the Minister of External Affairs Prof. G.L. Peiris.

Speaking at Battaramulla on the 25th Prof. Peiris has further said Mr. Manjula Tillekeratne has been appointed to the position while there were more qualified officials and making appointments without considering the seniority would create disorder in any institution.

However, political analysts say the government is making various charges against Mr. Manjula Tillekeratne as he does what is right but not what the government wants him to do. They ask whether these ministers and others in the government were not aware that Mr. Manjula Tillekeratne was appointed to the post until the conflict between the government and the judiciary developed. They point out that the government has come down to the low level of embracing anything advantageous to them and carrying out violence if something is disadvantageous to it. They further say defending the henchmen whatever crimes they commit and violently attack those who do not tow the government line has become the policy of this government.

What about Mahinda Rajapakshe's political henchman and advisor former Chief Justice appointing his younger brother Priyantha De Silva as Secretary to the Judicial Service Commission without considering the seniority? Did you consider seniority when your Mahinda Rajapakshe's government appointed Mahanil Prasantha De Silva and Sudath Gopallawa as Secretary to the Judicial Service Commission?

Tell it to the Birds. Posing as a champion of the Law it dawned on him only now that that constitution has been violated, that too after the secretary had to make his observation which were detrimental to the govt.Had he scratched the govts. back am sure they would have returned the favour without any bother about the constitution. As a responsible govt. when an important appointment is being they should have checked in the first place whether it conforms to the law of the country instead of harping on it after several moons have passed. This is what we call right royal humbug
