The Lawyers Collective has welcomes the decision of the executive committee of the Bar Association to appoint a standing committee of the Bar Association on Rule of Law.
The committee is headed by Senior Attorney at Law Lal Wijenayake to monitor the breaches of Rule of Law.
It will enable the Bar Association to look in to the breaches of law and take appropriate action to see that Rule of Law prevails.
The lawyers collective has called upon the members of the Bar to monitor breaches of Rule of Law in their areas and to report to the committee on Rule of Law without delay so that effective action can be taken by the Bar Association.
The lawyers collective also has called upon the Bar Association to look into the serious recent breaches of Rule of Law that has being reported and to see that those responsible are accountable to such actions as it is our view that such actions which blatantly violate the Rule of Law should not pass unchecked and unchallenged.
