State Minister of Finance Eran Wickremarate has observed that while we the Executive cannot influence the judicial process, we will do everything possible to help the Judiciary in executing justice without undue delay.
‘The Judiciary must ensure that justice is dispensed in a reasonable period of time” to help re-establish confidence in the process, he stressed.
He was addressing a seminar on the new Inland Revenue Act organised by the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce. He explained that the upcoming Budget 2018 would ensure that the country’s Judiciary would be provided with the means to fulfill both infrastructure and human resource requirements restricting the delivery of justice in a timely manner. The upcoming budget would seek to rectify the resource shortages currently experienced by the Judiciary which are causing delays in the legal process. The law will apply to everybody equally.
