The Minister of Justice states the condition to be fulfilled in order to release Ranjan

Justice Minister Wijedasa Rajapaksa says that the recommendations related to the release of former Member of Parliament Ranjan Ramanayake subject to a condition have been forwarded to the President.

“Giving this punishment is not related to a political issue – it is an ordinary incident, not even related to a crime. This sentence has been given for contempt of court. Therefore, in a matter like this, on the one hand, because he has been sentenced for a long time, and because he is on good behavior, and he is someone who can make some contribution to the society, we believe that it is very fair to grant him a pardon at this time. But we have to do that in such a way that our judiciary is not underestimated in any way. Because of that, we are of the opinion that the president should pardon him after he gives an affidavit to the court expressing regret for the statement he made about the judiciary.”

Wijedasa Rajapaksa said this while addressing a press conference held yesterday (10).
