The Bar Association of Sri Lanka (BASL) Vice President, senior lawyer Anoma Goonethilake said she decided to resign from her position following the tense situation that arose during the special general meeting held this morning.
Explaining reasons behind the decision to resign, Ms. Goonethilake said, “Although the BASL President Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe claims the three resolutions passed today were unanimously agreed upon, only a certain fraction consented to them. Those who opposed to the resolutions were not given a chance to express their views at all. I feel the BASL President acted in a dictatorial manner during the meeting today and the resolutions passed are extremely biased,” she said.
