Supreme Court decision on Ranjan’s contempt of court case to be announced on August 8....

The Supreme Court says that its decision whether the indictment against, Deputy Minister Ranjan Ramanayake would be filed or not in a case relating to the alleged contempt of court, will be announced on 8th of August.
 
This was announced when the case filed against Ramanayake was taken up before Chief Justice, Priyasath Depp, Justice L.T.B. Dehideniya, and Justice Vijitha Malalgoda at the Supreme Court today (Jul 30).
 
The Attorney General has also served a draft decree to the Supreme Court as well as the counsels of Ramanayake asking him to submit show-cause as to why legal actions should not be taken against him for allegedly defaming the court.
 
The Attorney General informed the Supreme Court on 4th of July that the respondent, Ramanayake’s controversial statement seemed at a glance to be in contempt of court.
 
On 21st August last year, following a meeting with the Prime Minister, Deputy Minister, Ranjan Ramanayake gave a statement to media, saying that the majority of judges and attorneys-at-law are corrupt.
 
Later, Ven. Magalkande Sudatta Thera and a retired airman Sunil Perera filed a contempt of court case against the Deputy Minister.
