Embilipitiya Magistrate interdicted!

The Judicial Services Commission has taken a decision to interdict the Embilipitiya Magistrate Dinesh Lakmal Perera over charges of misconduct.

It is reported that this Magistrate who is the son of a former judge had been using Face Book and posting comments unbecoming of his profession.

Generally when joining the judicial service one has to get through a first entrance exam and then face a second exam.

However, the Magistrate in question had joined the judicial service during the previous regime without following the standard routine of facing such examinations.
