Counter proposal against transfer of Gihan Kulatunga! Featured

A group of lawyers is going to make a proposal of confidence in high court judge Gihan Kulatunga that will request that he be not transferred.

The proposal to chief justice Priyasad Dep, due to be handed over next week, is a counter measure against a request by another group of lawyers who want Kulatunga transferred.

Lawyers supporting Kulatunga charge that a key supporter of the Rajapaksas, a lawyer by the name Ranjith Heellage, is behind the transfer request.

Kulatunga is hearing the case pertaining to the distribution of Sil clothing during Mahinda Rajapaksa’s presidential election campaign by using Rs. 60 million of Telecommunications Regulatory Commission money.
