Deputy Minister of Social Empowerment, Welfare and Kandyan Heritage Ranjan Ramanayake arrived at the Supreme Court a short while ago to respond to the allegations levied against him for being in contempt of court.

The Supreme Court issued a notice to Deputy Minister Ranjan Ramanayake, to appear before Court on November 21, over the allegation of contempt of court.

Two petitions were filed against the Deputy Minister by Sinhala Ravaya and retired Air Force Officer Sunil Perera alleging that the Deputy Minister vehemently insulted the reputation of the judiciary and lawyers at a press conference held on August 21.

The petitions highlighted the fact that such defamatory statements will shatter public confidence and provide a warped image of the judiciary to the people of Sri Lanka.
