    The passing of Mr. R.K.W. Goonesekere

    The illustrious past Chairman of Law and Society Trust, R.K.W.Goonesekere expired on November 17th in Colombo after a brief illness. Mr. Goonesekere was a member of the Board of Directors of the Law and Society Trust and its Chairman until 2014 when he decided to retire from those responsibilities. Mr. Goonesekere was the most outstanding constitutional lawyer of his time and defended persons against abuse of their fundamental rights, which earned him the deep respect and widespread admiration of the bar, the courts and the public at large. Young lawyers who learnt law practice in his Chambers now adorn the bar with great dignity and aplomb. He was a distinguished teacher and a celebrated Principal of the Ceylon Law College and much applauded lecturer in the Faculty of Law at the University of Ceylon. He stood tall and sturdy in the long line of law practitioners in the private bar who together with some great jurists at the Bench carried high the structure of law and justice in this country.

    We, the members of the Board of Directors and the staff of the Law and Society Trust are deeply saddened by his passing and extend our condolences to professor Savitri Goonesekere and their children.
