Despite the unequivocal opposition of the Bar Association of Sri Lanka (BASL) to declaring a state of emergency, an increasingly vocal section of lawyers has said: I overwhelmingly support President Ranil’s measures. Wickremesinghe, who is also the commander-in-chief of the army.

On Thursday (04) night, Swarnavahini’s Nimesh Wijesuriya anchored ‘Rathu Ira’, where several people including former Top Hand Attorney General Srinath Perera, PC, and Tirantha Walaiyadde, PC, Attorney-at. Senior Counsel – Ravindra Manoj Gamage Law strongly supported the declaration of emergency but expressed concern over previous charges directed against UNP leaders.

The panel included lawyer Nuwan Bopage, a key member of the Front Socialist Party (FSP), one of the groups spearheading the “operation” leading to Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s forced resignation on 14 July. It was JVP faction attorney Bopage vowed to resist Wickremesinghe’s onslaught, whatever the outcome.

Having issued a dire warning to his junior Bopage that he would face imprisonment on charges of disobeying the country, Walayadeh faced an unprecedented problem at hand, whatever allegations had been directed against President Ranil Wickremesinghe in the past. stressed that time and space should be given to deal with “The country needs to prepare for civil war if the new president is denied at least six months to take concrete steps to overcome the challenges,” the senior attorney warned.

Walayadeh supported security measures against the threat posed by those desperate to overthrow the government beyond constitutional means, but commented on the current judicial process regarding the incident involving protests and related actions. The outspoken lawyer said that while initially purporting to be nonpartisan and peaceful, no one has emerged as the leader/leader of the increasingly radical protest movement. The group tried to cover up its failure by claiming that they all represented the leader.

Nimesh Wijesuriya addressed issues related to the ‘protest movement’ following ongoing discussion of the role played by the Bar Association of Sri Lanka (BASL) throughout the project. Lawyer Manoli Ginadosa recently posed a very pertinent question about the failure of the BASL side to condemn a “protest” against illegal acts such as the seizure and arson of the Presidential Palace, the Presidential Palace and the Prime Minister’s Office. The prime minister’s private residence at the time. Since then, her PC, BASL President Sarya Pieris, has basically responded to these accusations by stating that these matters are now in the lower courts, as they are in court. I was.

Walaiyade called those who had been protesting outside the Geneva-based United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) traitors demanding outside intervention. He claimed that interested parties spread lies to undermine the then-government and said Walaiyade needed to deal with them.

At the beginning of the show, Bopage accused the Wickremesinghe government of ongoing attempts to suppress the “protest movement”. Bopage claimed that Wickremesinghe used popular protests to his advantage and demanded to know the president’s rationale for changing his position on many issues as soon as he took office.

Bopage declared that unless the government addressed the burning issue, the “protests” would continue. A public struggling to make ends meet.

Condemning the attack, which was allegedly carried out in Galle Face on the orders of Temple Tree on May 9, 2009, lawyer Gamaji blamed a nationwide violence orchestrated by much larger conspirators. successor. Declaring that UNP leaders should be given a chance to deal with the issues at hand, Gamage demanded to know who the FSP had elected president.

Former aide Srinath Perera has accused President Wickremesinghe of past actions in connection with Treasury bond frauds carried out during his tenure as Prime Minister in 2015 and 2916, and high-profile corruption involving the Rajapaksa family. I requested the new president to investigate the incident.

Perera PC Attorney, who has declared that Rajapaksas will never be punished by Wickremesinghe-led regime, said the president’s intention is to somehow protect the corrupt land. The weight behind the state of emergency declared by the new leader.

Walaiyadde accused the JVP and its offshoot, the FSP, of the violence directed against the country. Lawyers have dismissed attempts to portray the “protest movement” as peaceful. The lawyer called for the toughest possible action against those involved in the violence, a stance that his colleagues Perera and Gammage embraced.

All of them said that the right to dissent should be respected, but that efforts to overthrow the country should not be tolerated under any circumstances.

Nuwan Bopage said the state/government failed to address public dissatisfaction. An FSP spokesperson questioned the absurdity of a lawyer representing state/government interests while a civilian was deprived of basic needs and he was deprived of proper meals twice a day. Beaupage argued that those who profited from a completely corrupt system shamelessly threw their weight behind their deceitful leaders.

Gammage recalled how Bopage threatened the IGP and other senior police officers, including DIG Deshabandu Tennakoon, outside police headquarters. Bopage had no hesitation in declaring he knew where the IGP and other senior officers lived, he said. What the lawyer meant was that their residence could also be demolished at any time. How can such actions be peaceful?

Gammage argued that those who caused the violence would not be there for those who would be put in jail. He pointed out that the people who inspired them did not pay attention to their plight.
