Judicial Service Commission summons ten judges to inquire why non-essential trials continued despite crisis

In the wake of the crisis situation in the country, court proceedings have been disrupted and the Judicial Service Commission, therefore, had decided to adjourn all hearings except those essential.

Despite the Commission’s decision, some of the judges have acted on continuing trials of cases considered to be non-essential. Accordingly, the Judicial Service Commission has decided to call in these judges and receive justifications from their end.

Via a circular issued by the Commission, ten magistrates and district judges have been ordered to report to the Commission and justify their actions.

Earlier, the Judicial Service Commission had informed via a circular that the court proceedings which had been delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic should be continued without delay, but the decision was revised via another circular a week after upon consideration on the country’s prevailing crisis, concluding that only the essential cases should be heard.
