I don’t know if Ranjan recorded my conversations

Speaker Karu Jayasuriya informed Parliament yesterday that he had spoken to MP Ranjan Ramanayake on a few occasions, but he had no idea whether Mr Ramanayake had recorded those phone conversations.
The Speaker said this in response to a question asked by government MP Nimal Lansa that the CDs were taken away from Parliament because of the phone conversations which Mr Ramanayake had with the Speaker.
