Court rejects writ appeal over Ranjan’s parliamentary seat


The Court of Appeal has rejected the writ application filed by the incarcerated parliamentarian Ranjan Ramanayake.

Ramanayke’s legal counsel had filed the relevant writ petition seeking an interim order preventing the suspension of his seat in the Parliament.

The Attorney General and Secretary-General of the Parliament have been named as the respondents of the petition.

The case was taken up before the Court of Appeal this morning (April 05).
