Ranjan’s video to be shown to all judges

The Supreme Court today (22) took up two petitions filed against deputy minister Ranjan Ramanayake who is accused of insulting the judiciary and lawyers by making a certain statement to the media on August 21.

The two petitioners, including a monk by the name Maligakande
Sudantha Thera, said a private television channel has handed over to courts the video footage of the entire incident. The SC ordered its registrar to display the video for all judges to see.

The attorney general said filing charges against Ramanayake would be done after watching the video.

The two petitions will be considered on 03 March.
