SRI LANKA-JUSTICE-POLITICS

Sri Lankan minister of environment Anura Yapa (C), the head of the parliamentary panel which probed the Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake on the impeachment motion, looks on during a press conference in Colombo on December 8, 2012. Sri Lanka's first woman chief justice looked set to be removed from office after a parliamentary panel found her guilty of three accusations of professional misconduct. The charges against Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake have raised international concerns that the government is trying to control the judiciary after crushing Tamil rebels in 2009 and consolidating its hold on power.
