"BASL president justifying Maithri's conduct" Featured

By justifying the actions of president Maithripala Sirisena, president of the Bar Association of Sri Lanka,  Attorney-At-Law U.R. de Silva is misusing his position, charges Attorney-At-Law Upul Kumarapperuma.
He was speaking at a media briefing of the 'Lawyers for Democracy', which was held at the Solis reception hall in Pitakotte today (11).
Speaking further, Attorney-At-Law Upul Kumarapperuma said, "the view of lawyers doesn't necessarily represent the view of the entire judicial body. Many lawyers act with political agendas in their minds. At this juncture, it is justifying the conduct of president Maithripala Sirisena."
The public need not be confused over sentiments expressed by U.R. de Silva or someone else. Only the Supreme Court is capable of providing the correct interpretation of this situation, he added.
