The JVP said today that President Mahinda Rajapakse was pretending he was innocent in the whole process of the impeachment and thereby had betrayed the 116 odd MPs who were the signatories to the motion.
Addressing a media briefing MP Anura Kumara Dissanayake said at a time when the masses and the Opposition were vehemently agitating against the government, the President had now decided to refer the PSC report against the Chief Justice to an independent commission for review.
The president had declared that he had been reluctantly compelled to submit this impeachment motion.
It is now apparent that after suppressing the demand made by the masses and the lawyers to refer the impeachment motion to an independent commission, president has now decided that an independent committee study the report of the PSC and make their recommendations.(Darshana Sanjeewa)
