Former CJ of India cancels Sri Lanka visit


Former Chief Justice of India J.S.Verma, who was to arrive in Colombo late on Friday heading an international fact-finding mission to assess the legal issues involved in the impeachment of Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake, has cancelled his visit. “I have decided to cancel,” he said when The Indian media contacted him over phone. On speculation that his Sri Lankan visa was revoked, he said there was no such issue.

The delegation has been constituted by the International Bar Association, and was mandated to investigate and report on Parliament’s actions on the impeachment issue, and if there were anomalies and transgressions.
