|Blast from the past: you be the judge.
Supreme Court in Sri Lanka has issued an injunction order against the investigations carried out by the police on alleged misappropriation of tsunami funds.
A bench headed by Chief Justice Sarath Silva ordered Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to temporarily halt the investigation after considering a petition by Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapakse.
CJ Sarath Nanda Silva strongly criticised the police for initiating an informal investigation based upon newspaper reports.
PM Rajapakse had to seek help from the courts, the CJ said, to protect his human rights due to actions by the police.
