Deputy Minister Ranjan Ramanayake said today he would make statement in Parliament next week regarding the statement made by the Bar Association of Sri Lanka (BASL) that it will take legal action against him.

He told Daily Mirror he would request the Speaker to summon BASL officials to Parliament. “I will also raise a privilege issue in the House and will request the Speaker to summon the officials of BASL,” he said.

The deputy minister said he had received plenty of information on various malpractices being carried out by judicial officers and lawyers and would produce them to courts in the event BASL filed legal action against him.

He said he was ready for the legal battle with the BASL. (Yohan Perera)

    Two former CJ's were corrupt there are judges facing charges, You have only to adjust your statement to say that not all lawyers and Judges are corrupt but there are lots of corrupt elements on both fields

    Please stay firm we need to expose corrupt professionals not just politicians .

    In any case, you should bring the culprits to court whether the BASL take legal action against you or not. This is your honorable obligation for the people. Do not stop half way.

    Hope the BASL will read how much the public detests the Lawyers and how they view the judiciary.
