Lawyers In Colombo Stage Silent Protest Near Hulftsdorp Courts Complex Against The Conduct Of Attorney General

Lawyers in Colombo staged a silent protest against the conduct of Attorney General Dappula de Livera at the Hulftsdorp courts complex.

The development took place after the Attorney General instructed the Police to arrest Embilipitiya High Court judge Gihan Kulatunga over the call recordings controversy.

Lawyers alleged that the Attorney General had attempted to undermine the judiciary by ordering the arrest of the judge.

Pilapitiya was questioned by the Colombo Crimes Division earlier this week on the same matter.

However, President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa instructed the Police chief earlier this month that arrests should be carried out only when it is absolutely necessary.

Meanwhile, a five-member committee comprising three Deputy Inspector Generals and two other police officers has been appointed by the IGP to study abstracts and make recommendations on the investigation into interdicted High Court Judge Gihan Pilapitiya
