Wimal questions Judge Pilapitiya’s arrest

Minister Wimal Weerawansa today blamed the Attorney General for wrongly requesting that Judge Gihan Pilapitiya be arrested.

Speaking during the condolence vote on the late MP Ranjith Soysa, Mr Weerawansa questioned why the AG has wanted Mr Pilapitiya arrested when he had refused to do what MP Ranjan Ramanayake had wanted him to do.

“Mr Pilapitiya has complained against MP Ramanayke to the Judicial Service Commission and the police. How is it that the person who lodged a complaint was arrested," he asked.

MP Wijedasa Rajapakshe also asked a similar question and called far an explanation of this act which was far from being fair.

He said the important fact is to determine as to who instructed MP Ramanayke to influence the judges. “Mr Ramanayke is only a puppet and it is important to find out as to who is controlling him,” the MP said. (Yohan Perera and Ajith Siriwardana)

    AG is now confused. Must be too many instructions, must be entangled in manipulating the law with all kind of orders

    If someone else is influencing Ranjan, then who is influencing Wimal for all his crazy and foolish activities?
