⦁ JSC silent meaning court premises can be used for any mirth and merriment !
(Lanka-e-News - 28.March.2017, 9.45AM) While there exists a clear circular No. 255 dated 2000-09-18 under the signature of the secretary of the Judicial Service Commission(JSC) which stipulates no religious functions or observances shall be conducted on any court premises , the so called bana ( religious sermon) ‘party’ conducted by Kandy high court judge Ms. Kusala Sarojini Weerawardena on the court premises , is in transgression of many other directives too issued by the JSC, based on reports reaching Lanka e news inside information division.
One such transgression is , she and her henchmen have violated the directive of the JSC which explains how the judges of all courts should discharge their duties towards the public and the official time that shall be spent. Sadly , Ms. Sarojini had flagrantly flouted all those instructions despite being a most responsible judge who owes an honorable duty towards the public.
The duty hours of every judge is from 8.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. The employees of the lower rungs of the judicial service must commence work at 8.15 a.m. and wind up at 4.45 p.m. ( employees who work overtime aside).
Ms. Sarojini has unfortunately commenced her bana preaching ‘party’ on 21 st March (Tuesday) at 4.00 p.m. In confirmation , we produce herein a photo of an invitation card relating to the ‘bana party’ printed and sent by Ms. Sarojini . Though the party was to commence at 4.00 p.m. , at least another one hour had to be spent for the preparations. That is ,more court time had been wasted.
In other words , Ms. Sarojini and her henchmen have committed a grave unlawful act which dishonorably runs counter to her honorable official duty; wasted official duty time: and was an abuse of the official premises . The evidence bearing testimony to these grave offences are herein (photos). These photos clearly depict how during duty hours , the official court premises were misused by Ms. Sarojini , and how it was unlawfully allocated for the relatives of judges , and the employees of the lawyers for the ‘bana party .’
No matter what , a number of judges of the independence judiciary who respect laws (unlike Ms.Sarojini who even does not know the legal traditions and norms) in a salutary move boycotted this’ bana party’. Unsurprisingly of course , Sumudhu Premachandra alias ‘Honeymoon Veddah’ about whose topless bottomless nature Lanka e news had already reported made a beeline from Kurunegala to attend Ms. Sarojini’s ‘bana party’ putting aside his judicial duties as though to demonstrate he is another law disrespecting judge of her same ilk.
The JSC up to the time of writing this article having not taken any disciplinary action against the judges ( male and female) who acted in violation of the hallowed judicial traditions , judicial norms , judicial values , in disrespect of the courts, and who took part in this unlawful so called religious event is most reprehensible , repugnant and portentous from the standpoint of the law abiding citizens of the country.
If the JSC is going to remain silent and indifferent in this regard , the next move will be hiring the sacrosanct court premises for merry making parties and party revelers after 4.00 p.m. In that event like halls of government schools are hired out after school hours for any merriment , the courts too can be hired out for any nefarious purposes - to make a fast buck too on the sly. Much better if a portion of the premises is demarcated to run a bar for judges following the slogan ‘on the path of Kusala’ to enjoy a drink in comfort whenever they feel like.
