|No "kingdoms" within department, AG warns
The Attorney General, K. C. Kamalasabaysan, P.C., during this week warned his subordinates not to have "small kingdoms", purportedly reigned by "small kings" within the department of the Attorney general. He advised the legal officers holding office in the rank of state counsel, to serve the office of the Attorney general and the office of the solicitor general.
He warned not to serve individual superiors taking them at personal level.
If any officer could not fall into the mainstream prescribed by the Attorney General, that officer may leave the department he said.
No more "small kingdom" "Kiribath parties", during the new year time, he said. Kiribath should be served by the head of the department, he said.
Officers may have personal friends in the private bar. But that does not mean that the state officers, should favour their friends during the arguments of a court case, he said.
Kamalasabaysan expressed his appreciation of having Mr. C. R. de Silva, P.C. Solicitor General as the head of the criminal branch. The AG said it was good to have an outspoken person in that seat.
The Attorney General said he would make his best endeavour to safeguard the public image of the department.
The AG made the aforesaid observations at a workshop conducted by the Attorney Generals department.
