A Sri Lankan police officer walks at the deserted High Court as Sri Lankan lawyers stage a work stay away in the capital Colombo on January 10, 2013. Sri Lanka's lawyers staged a strike Thursday to protest the impeachment of the country's top judge which has raised concern about judicial independence on the previously war-ravaged Indian Ocean island. Work in court houses came to a stand still as some 11,000 lawyers of the influential Bar Association stayed away and protested in the centre of the capital Colombo after being prevented from marching to parliament.
