The conversations with the female judge had revolved around her promotion.
Government Spokesman Keheliya Rambukwella said the Acting IGP had informed him that investigations were being carried out into the controversial audio clips that were found in the actor’s Madiwela residence on Sunday.
Minister Rambukwella said contents of some calls with politicians carried threatening tones, especially with regard to Duminda Silva.
