Joint Opposition MP Prasanna Ranaweera might face a ban of one month, which will prevent him from attending Parliamentary sessions.
 
He appeared before the Parliamentary Privileges Committee yesterday.
 
When contacted an MP who was a member of the Committee said they discussed the disciplinary issue of MP Ranaweera at length.
 
Ranaweera is accused of unruly behavior in Parliament urging the Speaker to take action against MP Vijayakala Maheshwaran for making a pro-LTTE statement in Jaffna.
 
On the 3rd July, Joint opposition MPs encroached the Well of the House and staged a protest against Maheshwaran’s statement.
 
MP Ranaweera was accused of attempting to snatch the mace on that occasion.
 
According to the standing order 77, if an MP who commits a severe act against discipline by touching or raising the mace when placed in the parliament chamber is liable to a four-week suspension without taking into consideration the offence was committed for the first time.
 
The recommendations of the Parliamentary Privileges Committee will be submitted to the Speaker today.
