Don’t comment on judicial proceedings – RW

Leader of the United National Party Ranil Wickremesinghe has once again requested party members to refrain from expressing their views or reaching conclusions pertaining to cases being examined before the Supreme Court and any other Court of law.

The UNP leader reiterated his request during the UNP Parliamentary group meeting held this morning subsequent to the party leaders meeting at the Parliament complex.

Wickremesinghe claimed that Parliamentarians should not determine the number of judges presiding over cases heard at the Supreme Court.

UNP leader Wickremesinghe noted MPs cannot reach conclusions on the verdict to determine whether the judgement is divided or not.

The party leader also requested UNP MPs to refrain from drawing conclusions on the petitions filed before the Supreme Court pertaining to the country’s Constitutional crisis.
