The Supreme Court today ordered the Attorney General to file charges against State Minister Ranjan Ramanayake over allegations of contempt of court, within a month.

The state minister, during a TV programme in December last year, allegedly commented on the composition of the Supreme Court Judge Bench which is hearing the Fundamental Rights petitions filed against the dissolution of parliament.

The case was taken in the court today by a three-judge bench comprising of Chief Justice Jayantha Jayasuriya, Justices Vijith K. Malalgoda and Murdu Fernando.
