In this photo released by Sri Lanka's President’s Office, Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa, center, swears in new Chief Justice Mohan Peiris, right, a retired attorney general and a legal adviser to the Cabinet, as Lalith Weeratunga, secretary to the president, second from right, watches in Colombo, Sri Lanka, Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2013. Rajapaksa swore in Peiris, a trusted aide, 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.
