Taking a dig at comments made by Namal Rajapaksa MP in describing the country’s judicial system Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera said “we all know how Namal baby passed the law exam and his father subjugated and ruined the judicial system in the country”.
Mangala Samaraweera addressing both local and international journalists today said neither Namal nor his father had any right to comment on the judiciary.
The Foreign Minister went on to say that Rajapksa senior had appointed judges and other senior officers in the Judicial system, not depending on competency and integrity but considering only loyalty to him and his family.
He said that even a former chief justice had been fired without any consideration to f airplay and justice and had appointed one of his lackey’s in her place.
Samaraweera said that it was clear by his comments and conduct that Namal baby too was following in his father’s footsteps.
Sri Lankan Courts Can Conduct Credible Investigations: Namal Rajapaksa
Updating his Facebook status Namal Rajapaksa MP said; “I believe the OHCHR’s call for the creation of hybrid court in Sri Lanka is a complete insult to the entire legal system in this country. Sri Lanka is fully capable of conducting any domestic inquiry that may be needed and should be allowed to proceed without foreign interference. Sri Lankan courts have already demonstrated that they have the resources and the capability to conduct credible investigations within the existing legal framework. The double standards practiced by certain sections of the international community is injustice in itself.”
