A Sri Lankan lawyer blows out a candle to symbolize the end of independent judiciary, during a protest outside the Supreme Court complex in Colombo, Sri Lanka,Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2013. Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa on Tuesday swore in Mohan Peiris, a trusted aide and retired attorney general and a legal adviser to the Cabinet, to replace the chief justice he fired, a move that could lead to a judicial crisis if lawyers and judges who say the move was illegal refuse to cooperate with the new head judge.
