SRI LANKA-POLITICS-JUSTICE

Sri Lankan lawyer J. C. Weliamuna (C) speaks with reporters outside the Sri Lankan Supreme Court in Colombo on December 6, 2012. Sri Lanka's top judge Shirani Bandaranayake stormed out of her impeachment hearing after government lawmakers called her a 'mad woman' and displayed open hostility during an unfair trial, her lawyers said. The move to impeach the country's first female chief justice, came after she scuttled several bills, including one that gave more powers to President Mahinda Rajapakse's youngest brother Basil, the economic development minister.
