The Attorney General considers indicting MP Ranjan Ramanayake and former high court Judge Gihan Pilapitiya in the High Court based on the matters that transpired in a leaked phone conversation between them.

They are to be indicted under the Sections 190 of the Penal Code (fabricating evidence), 113 (Conspiring), and 102 (abetting) based on the facts revealed in the phone conversation.

The MP will also face charges under the Article 111 of the Constitution for the offence of interfering with the functions of a Judge.

AG Dappula de Livera has decided to forward the indictments directly to the High Court under the section 393(7) of the Criminal Procedure Code against the suspects.

He yesterday forwarded a letter to acting Inspector General of Police, Chandana Wickramaratne asking him why the Police had not obtained an arrest warrant against the suspects despite being directed to do so by the AG on January 23, 2020.

The AG has asked the acting IGP to show cause before February 10, 2020 over the failure to comply with the AG's advise and follow the criminal procedure Act in connection with the obtaining of a warrant.

Earlier, the AG had advised the acting IGP to obtain a warrant and arrest the suspects in connection with the offences in keeping with the criminal procedure.

The AG had specifically advised the acting IGP about the importance of obeying and following the supreme obligations as set out in the Article 12 (1) and (2) of the Constitution, that "all persons are equal before the law and no citizen shall be discriminated against on the grounds of race, religion, language, caste, sex, political opinion, place of birth or any such grounds".

    I think it would be very wise to leave Justice or Magistrate Pilapitiya alone, release him and indict that woman judge who absolutely demeaned herself and disgraced the Judiciary by pleading for a promotion and interference in the Judicial appointments by this Ramanayake fellow. I thought the AG had more sense but there may be factors unknown to the public operating here. MM

    You are absolutely wrong. She asked for her son's protection when everyone in the high officers did not pay attention to. Do not take sides. These are all political games to cover big guns asses

    Who the hell are you to advice our brave Attorney General ? What is your own education, are you a Lawyer or ever been to University ? I don’t think so.

    The is and was looted, where where these jokers? This applies to all letters of the English alphabet.

    I think they all should be tried, not only the lady judge. They all are wrong. Also, public servant and politicos who robbed public funds or helped to robbed should be brought to justice.

    This AG has left alone the Director CID and the lady judge (forgotten the name ) when clear evidence is available against both. He is acting in a biased manner to take revenge from Gihan Pilapitiya while leaving the rest freely
