A group of lawyers entered the Attorney General’s Department premises criticising Attorney General’s decision to withdraw several cases filed against politicians.
They entered the premises shouting slogans alleging that role of Attorney General has been politicized since he has withdrawn cases filed against corrupt politicians. They urge the Attorney General to uphold rule of law and listen to the public .
They said the sovereignty is vested on the people and the Attorney General cannot act contrary to the people’s supremacy.(Lakmal Sooriyagoda)
