Ranjan produced in SC today!

Former MP Ranjan Ramanayake was produced before the Supreme Court this morning (24), for the hearing of the second contempt of court case against him.

He was escorted to the court premises by prison officers while the case is being heard before Colombo High Court Judge Amal Ranaraja.

The former parliamentarian was jailed a year ago on a charge of contempt of court.

The case stems from a statement made by Ranjan Ramanayake during a television program in 2018 regarding the five-judge bench of the Supreme Court that heard fundamental rights petitions filed by then President Maithripala.
