Supreme Court order has not violated Parliament Privileges- BASL | Sri Lanka News

There has been no violation of the powers and the privileges of Parliament, by the interim order issued by Supreme Court on Local Government Election, the Bar Association of Sri Lanka (BASL) announced today.

In a statement, the BASL stated that the Supreme Court being an independent institution should not be called upon to explain judicial orders to any other person or institution.

The BASL stated that it was aware that an order made by the Supreme Court has been referred to the Parliamentary Committee on Ethics and Privileges.

The BASL is of the view that the Judiciary should be allowed to operate independently, free from external pressures, threats or any interference, for a vibrant democracy to exist.

The BASL further viewed that it is the duty of all governmental and other institutions to respect and observe the independence of the judiciary, and any interference in the judicial process, sets a dangerous precedent, which must be strongly condemned.(Lakmal Sooriyagoda)
