(Lanka-e-News -26.Feb.2017, 10.30PM) The Bar Association of Sri Lanka (BASL) has decided to hold BASL elections on the 15 th of March before the elections officers appointed by the Attorney General (AG), sans the assistance of judges , BASL decided.
At the special general meeting convened yesterday (25) this decision was taken . The postponement of the BASL election was necessitated due to the huge embarrassment caused and obstacles created by the judges of the lower rung .A large group of lawyers who expressed bitter resentment against the odious moves of the judges of the Judicial service Association (JSA) frowned upon their self degrading conduct .
The president Jeffrey Alagaratnam at the beginning made a long speech to explain and elaborate on the lawful intervention of the BASL in the appointment of Ramanathan Kannan as high court judge and to what extent fair play and justice was adhered to.
It is specially noteworthy no one present objected to these revelations. Thereafter , all the lawyers categorically criticizing the conduct and abominable moves of the JSA ( truly only a few -5 to 6 judges villainous of the nefarious decade who are still alive acted degradingly) is something worthy of special mention.
Subsequently , an amendment to the BASL constitution was proposed and that was passed with the unanimous support of all, to hold the BASL elections before the elections officers appointed by the AG . Accordingly ,the election is to be held on 15 th of March .
Time serving pro Rajapakse lawyer Kaalawarnakulasuriya whose gaze despite the squint is only fixed on filthy lucre however earned and was hoping against hope that a stormy situation would follow ,upon realizing nothing of that sort was going to ensue , was seen walking out crestfallen and thoroughly disappointed after about half an hour . It also became very evident the great expectations of the kudu (heroin) television channel magnates and share market racketeers of the Rajapakse ring too crashed to the ground.

It was the JSA - not JSC, that mislead everyone. In fact it was their Secretary who mislead everyone in the JSA.
