The Parliamentary Privileges Committee which convened yesterday has decided to file legal action against 7 Parliamentarians involved in the clashes in November within the house.

No legal action will be taken against the other 52 MP’s involved but a decision will be made in future with regard to action that needs to be taken against them.

The report compiled by the Committee appointed by the Speaker to investigate the clash had charged 54 UPFA MP’s, 4 UNP MP’s and 1 JVP MP.

However, legal action will be filed against UPFA MP’s Prasanna Ranaweera, Johnston Fernando and Padma Udayashantha over obstructing Police duty, assaulting police officers and throwing chili powder at them.

UNP MP Ranjan Ramanayaka and Deputy Minister Palitha Thevarapperuma will be charged for bringing in knives in to the house and for threatening.

MP’s Dilum Amunugama and Ananda Aluthgamage will be charged for causing damages to the audio system by destroying the Microphone at the Speakers desk.
