Mullaitivu District Judge’s actions baffling – Minister
If there was stress due to any influence, the former Mullaitivu District Judge should take responsibility for the incident as he had all the powers to act against the person who influenced him, Justice, Prison Affairs and Constitutional Reforms Minister Dr. Wijayadasa Rajapakshe told Parliament yesterday (3).
The Minister also said that no attempt should be made to put the responsibility of the incident on the account of the government. If the Mullaitivu District Judge was under stress due to some influence, it is puzzling he went abroad and sent a letter to inform about it and if there was such influence.
He said that the judges themselves have the power under the Constitution to issue summons and take action against the person who exerts such influence. The Minister also mentioned that it is a question why he did not use that power when he had such power. The Minister said this in response to a question by Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa in this regard.
