‘What was done in Pakistan is not possible here’

President Mahinda Rajapaksa warned today (Dec. 09) that it would not be possible to break up the judiciary as in the case of Pakistan, and that the intelligent Sri Lankan public would not allow the democratically-elected government to be toppled.Speaking at the opening of a new building complex for Minuwangoda Pradeshiya Sabha, he said the executive, legislature and the judiciary should understand the people’s needs and act accordingly.He advised the judiciary to safeguard its dignity by acting in a manner without attracting any criticism, and said state administration would face trouble if people lost their faith in the judiciary.He added that just like in the past when attempts were made to divide the military, there was an on-going attempt now to divide and politicize the judiciary.
