Dr. Wickremabahu Karunarathne says, the formulation of a constitution acceptable to all communities is not a western conspiracy at all.

Leader of the Lanka Samasamaja Party, Dr. Wickremabahu Karunarathne says, the new Judicature Act is a tool that can expedite the hearing of difficult cases. Speaking at a press briefing held at the 'Centre for Peace and Civil Society' today he said, those who have engaged in theft can be brought to justice within a quick space of time with the passing of this Act. Citing various arguments by certain politicians saying that the Prime Minister needs to be removed to defeat western conspiracies, Dr. Wickremabahu said, the formulation of constitution acceptable to all communities is not a western conspiracy at all.

Prabodha Ratnayake, representing 'Lawyers for Democracy' said, the establishment of a permanent high court comprising three high court judges will definitely fast-track the hearing of cases.
