PSC cannot come to a finding adversely affecting the rights of a judge – Court of Appeal

Judgement

The Court of Appeal read out the determination of the Supreme Court a short while ago in relation to several matters which had been referred to the Supreme Court by the Court of Appeal on the interpretation of the constitution.

According to Attorney-at-Law Saliya Peiris, the Supreme Court had determined that the Parliamentary Select Committee which examined the impeachment motion against the Chief Justice under Standing Orders 78/A has no legal power or authority to come to a finding adversely affecting the rights of a judge.
