The Supreme Court ordered the Attorney General to file a charge sheet against state minister Ranjan Ramanayake for the second case of contempt of court within a month effective today.

The Supreme Court also informed the case will be heard on July 30th.

The case was taken before the Chief Justice Jayantha Jayasuriya, Justice Vijith Malalgoda and Justice Murdu Fernando.

President counsel Faiz Mustapha who appeared for Ranjan Ramanayake told the court that he did not object to submitting a charge sheet against his client.

However, he requested the court to grant him an opportunity to make a submission on behalf of his client as well.

Ranjan Ramanayake has been sued for contempt of court he allegedly committed during a television program where he expressed his views with regard to the content of the panel of judges appointed to hear a fundamental rights petition.

The petition requested the Supreme Court to annul the said Gazette which was issued dissolving parliament last November.
