Unfortuntaely the new CJ is not a carrier judge. He parachuted into the Court of Appeal from the Attorney General's Dept and then found his way into the Supreme Court. The appointment would be giving heart burn to many carrier judges.

Dear New Supreme Cort Chief Justice, I believe that you will follow the same policies of Former Chief Justice Sarath de Silva.

De Silvas who born in Ambalangoda, Galle or Gintota never went behind the dirty Politicians or they never listen to Politicians. They have very high respect to the judiciary.

I congratulate you.
Warm wishes from BLACK PANTHER DE SILVA
