The Lanka Self-Employed Professionals' National Three-Wheeler Federation said it had decided to offer Rs. 1 million cash reward to the three-wheeler driver who has handed over an external hard drive containing MP Ranjan Ramanayake telephone recordings to the Police.

Three-Wheeler Federation's President Sunil Jayawardana told the Daily Mirror that no one had admired the three-wheeler driver, who has done an eminent service.

“If the driver had not handed over the hard drive to the Police and did not expose the recordings, we could not have known about those who were involved in Judiciary, Police and politicians and artists.

“The driver did not black mail anyone or destroy the hard drive. If so the matter would have never come out,” he said.

Mr Jayawardana said they still did not know about the driver’s identity.

“The Police must have driver’s information. If the driver proved his identity we will offer the reward the publically or secretly,” he said.

Police earlier said that a three-wheeler driver from Battaramulla has handed over the hard drive to the Mirihana Police on January 2 after a passenger had left it in his three-wheeler.

The Police said following the examination of the hard drive handed over by the Battaramulla three-wheeler -driver, the Police found a large number of telephone recordings of MP Ranjan Ramanayake.

Recordings of phone conversations with former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, MP Hirunika Premachandra, former High Court Judge Padmini N. Ranawaka, former Director of the Bribery Commission Dilrukshi Dias Wickramasinghe, former Director of the CID Shani Abeysekera and several other conversations with Judges, Police officers and artists were found in the hard drive.(Darshana Sanjeewa Balasuriya)

    Matters coming out on Social Media has no impact on Judiciary, unless proper legal action is initiated, and all i mean all related to and linked with the conversations has to be questioned to find all culprits.

    The TUK TUK association should mind their own business proper to them. We have to have a Government regulator to control the affairs of Uncontrolled and undisciplined TUK TUK and not unprofessional National Three-Wheeler union Federation
