Parliamentarian Sarath Weerasekera has called on the Speaker of House to request the Supreme Court to conduct an investigation into the attorney who allegedly misused judicial powers in relation to the detained Russian Aeroflot flight.
Speaking in Parliament yesterday the MP said the attorney was in contempt of court and worked beyond his powers.
The MP said the fiscal officer and the attorney involved in the incident have misused their powers as revealed in court.
MP Weerasekera meanwhile charged that criminals are being applauded by attorneys, while the Bar Association of Sri Lanka is representing criminals at no cost and encouraging violence as a result.
The Parliamentarian also claimed that Magistrates are releasing arsonists on bail and are reaching arbitrary decisions.
The MP charged that the supremacy of the judiciary is being tarnished.
