Warrant issued to arrest Ranjan

A warrant has been issued by the Nugegoda Magistrate’s Court to arrest MP Ranjan Ramanayake, reports say.

Attorney General Dappula De Livera had earlier instructed the Colombo Crimes Division (CCD) to obtain an arrest warrant from the court to arrest MP Ramanayake and produce him before courts.

The AG informed the CCD that legal action can be taken against MP Ramanayake on charges of violating the Constitution and interfering with the functions of the judiciary.

The Attorney General issued the directives following the consideration of the documents and evidence directed by the Police pertaining to ongoing investigations over the controversial phone recordings seized from MP Ramanayake’s residence.

The Attorney General had further informed that sufficient facts had been tabled to name MP Ranjan Ramanayake as a suspect in interfering or attempting to interfere in judicial proceedings of three judges.
