Expose: Full Text Of Sharma's Buried 2nd Report: CJ Impeachment Was Unlawful

The whole matter was a complete cover up by Britain with the connivance of India, whose agent was Kamalesh Sharma. it is all an attempt to save Sri Lanka from international investigations into violations of Human Rights, in which India was complicit.

(MELBOURNE) - The Colombo Telegraph fully exposed the burial of the second report on the sacking of Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake by Rajapaksa, requested by the Commonwealth Secretary General Kamalesh Sharma. Please read how he justifies his act. His cover up of both the reports from the Commonwealth Ministerial Action Group (CMAG) paved the way for the holding of CHOGM in Colombo.

Sharma even refused to disclose the findings to members of CMAG, the Commonwealth’s organ to measure state compliance with the organisation’s core values and principles. Queried on the topic by the Canadian High Commission in UK, Sharma responded that some matters were ‘privileged’ communications to his office.

Has he presumed by the word 'office', he meant himself alone? Were the members of CMAG, who were deliberating on the fitness of Sri Lanka to hold CHOGM in Colombo, or an alternative venue, not entitled to receive that 'privileged' knowledge? The whole matter was a complete cover up by Britain with the connivance of India, whose agent was Kamalesh Sharma. it is all an attempt to save Sri Lanka from international investigations into violations of Human Rights, in which India was complicit. Britain's interest in the whole operation stems from its geopolitical interests. Please click the link and read the rest.

Expose: Full Text Of Sharma’s Buried 2nd Report: CJ Impeachment Was Unlawful

The two eminent Commonwealth Jurists, whose opinion was sought by the Commonwealth Secretariat on President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s removal of Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake has found that her impeachment was flawed and a direct violation of Commonwealth Values and the process undertaken to remove the CJ did not comply with the Constitution and was unlawful, Colombo Telegraph can exclusively reveal today.

On August 15, Colombo Telegraph exclusively revealed that the Commonwealth Secretary General Kamalesh Sharma who had commissioned two key legal opinions from eminent Commonwealth Jurists on the Sri Lankan Government’s impeachment of its Chief Justice, Shirani Bandaranayake had decided to withhold the findings of those reports from the rest of the organisation.

Sharma refused to disclose the findings, even to the Commonwealth Ministerial Action Group, the Commonwealth’s organ to measure state compliance with the organisation’s core values and principles. Queried on the topic by the Canadian High Commission in UK, Sharma responded that some matters were ‘privileged’ communications to his office.

Again, on September 9, 2013 Colombo Telegraph exclusively revealed the legal opinion sought and then buried by the Secretary General’s Office. Justice P.N. Langa, former Chief Justice of South Africa and respected jurist, concludes that the Rajapaksa Government’s decision to disregard the Supreme Court Ruling on the impeachment of Chief Justice Bandaranayake was unconstitutional and said it was “sowing the seeds of anarchy.”

Today we can reveal the other report by the UK Jurist Professor Sir Jeffrey Jowell, Q.C.,one of Britain’s best-known academics, had been at work drafting amendments to ensure safeguards to the Crime and Security Bill, Emeritus Professor of Public Law and Dean of the Faculty of Law, University College London, which concludes that removing Chief Justice Bandaranayake was unconstitutional.

We publish below the full report of the Q.C.  Sir Jeffrey Jowell report. Read the page 26 for his conclusions;
