AG submits draft of rule against Ramanayake

Attorney General has submitted the draft of rule document to Supreme Court, today (30), to show cause on Deputy Minister Ranjan Ramanayake over the contempt of Court charges against him.

The Supreme Court had directed the Attorney General to draft a rule document to show cause why Deputy Minister Ranjan Ramanayake should not be held in contempt.  

Accordingly, the Attorney General has submitted a draft of document today and the Supreme Court stated that the course of action regarding it would be notified on the 8th of August.

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.
