Colombo, Jan 20 (Daily Mirror) - A leaked audio conversation between a police officer and a female lawyer, suspected of representing a relative of organized criminal Ganemulla Sanjeewa who is being held at the Weeragula Police Station, has surfaced. 

It is alleged that during the conversation, the lawyer engaged with an Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) from the Narcotics Unit and attempted to offer a bribe.

It was reported that a team of officers from the Police Narcotics Bureau was dispatched to investigate a house in the Makilangamuwa area related to the drug trafficking case involving Ganemulla Sanjeeva. 

Sources said that a woman identifying herself as a lawyer representing a relative of Ganemulla Sanjeewa intervened at the location, urging the officers not to search the particular house.

The lawyer, a resident of the Gampaha area, allegedly tried to bribe an ASP of the Narcotics Bureau after her attempts to obstruct the search had failed. 

A formal complaint has been filed with the Bribery or Corruption Investigation Commission regarding this incident.

    Truth Saturday, 20 January 2024 09:31 PM

    While in Sri Lanka female Lawyers are bribing the policemen, in America female Lawyers have gone one step further , they have been caught having sex in prisons with their clients and in some occasions with investigating police officers. The fundamental reason being in America there is no class system like in BritIn as all the White Americans are second, third, or fourth generation of the WORKING CLASS REJECTS OF EUROPE.

    Is it by money or OTHER MEANS.

    We don’t know the actual happening But we know that certain police officers despite of their rank are soliciting and accepting the gratifications and bribes. Furthermore some police officers have assisted the drug kingpins and some political perpetrators to leave the country surreptitiously. We astonish if the police officers are performing the duty being entrusted to them very honestly as to how the large scale drug traffickers leave the country hassle free

    This kind of lawyers never be allowed to enter courts, her properties should be taken for earning by practicing to protect the criminals by bribing. This should be a lesson to all lawyers who use this industry unethically. Her parents not taught good practice. Putting entire country in shit for her greedy. Pathetic people.

    Sinna Thurai Sunday, 21 January 2024 02:49 AM

    Do you call this woman a Lawyer..?

    Tissa Fernando Sunday, 21 January 2024 04:38 AM

    Human Rights activists and Honorable Cardinal will come up strong statements demanding that this woman is released. NPP will go to SC asking to remove Police Chief.

    Citizen k Sunday, 21 January 2024 03:01 PM

    I wonder if Tissa Fernando is sane?Useless people who condemn religious leaders at a drop of a hat for no reason except craving for attention.

    Are you Indian operative, or some far-right madman Monday, 22 January 2024 07:47 AM

    The Indians are known to be wanting to de-stabilise our country, so they can get their Indian credit-line paid off without problems. Maybe you are one of those who support India, or you are far-right madman. Both bad for our country.

    Ram Sunday, 21 January 2024 04:42 AM

    Offer of something is clear in the conversation and agreeing to accept is not very clear. Good to investigate the conversation and take action. Todays SL women lawyers are all over the place and will stoop to any level to earn money. Pathetic

    Mahila Sunday, 21 January 2024 04:14 PM

    SILENCE and/or being non-committal is Tacit acceptance!!! The demand is made after accomplishing Task!!!

    Harry Sunday, 21 January 2024 07:51 AM

    Most of the lawyers do not follow any ethics they go to the bottom level to get their work done. Most of the lawyers has connections with political leaders. The most easiest way to become a professional is to study law in sinhala or in Tamil after O/L.

    Kapila Nanayakkara Sunday, 21 January 2024 11:52 AM

    If not for lawyers many innocent citizens holding opposing political views and active would be end up in jail or worse, killed by police for "suspected" drug trafficking. It could be you or one of your loved ones.

    TCL Sunday, 21 January 2024 11:25 AM

    She should be barred from practicing as a lawyer. Her husband who was at MAS and presently at TJ should be identified and expelled.

    Athokorala Sunday, 21 January 2024 12:00 PM

    When you listen to this conversation it clearly indicates there is a very close association between the Two with other means and had unwanted phone conversations prior as well, this shows there is no respect for their positions , and they are more interested about some other personal activities. The Police must look into this matter with a clear mind..!

    Gune Sunday, 21 January 2024 12:01 PM

    SL has this useless place called the Law College which admits OL failed pathetics like this women and politicians. In most developed countries, law is taught at universities and admission is very competitive. No wonder SL courts never solve any cases. Another sign of a failed State.

    Mahila Sunday, 21 January 2024 01:20 PM

    Sorry Ladies and Gentlemen contributors, totally misunderstood "Flexibility' in the recording!!!??? 2nd reading along with Others' comments, have made understand what was meant!? "Flexing or Consent to Flexibility" of significant "Muscles', by the party concerned! Oh My GOSH! Good Heavens!

    Rip Winkle Sunday, 21 January 2024 01:46 PM

    Sounds like a plot by the cops and other interested parties to bring disrepute to the bar association. I can't imagine why my earlier comment wasn't printed.

    Anything for money Sunday, 21 January 2024 02:45 PM

    Teachers, Doctors, Lawyers are all the same. No ethics or values. They will bow down to any level, in front of money.

    sam Sunday, 21 January 2024 04:12 PM

    Profession has lost its status due to people like this.

    FOOD FOR THOUGHT Sunday, 21 January 2024 05:35 PM

    SOURCES have said the woman was supposed to be a lawyer representing a a relative of Sanjeewa, so let's not jump to conclusions till the woman in identified in the registered legal profession as a lawyer. However, NOT every LAWYER is corrupt, the MAJORITY of OUR LAWYERS ARE HONEST REPUTABLE PROFESSIONALS. I WOULD ASK WHY DIDN'T THE ASP OF NARCOTICS FIRMLY RESPOND THAT HE WAS NOT GOING TO ACCEPT ANY BRIBES AND TAKE THE WOMAN INTO CUSTODY? HIM AVOIDING TO RESPOND DIRECTLY GIVES READERS FOOD FOR THOUGHT.

    Lawyers against aragalaya are usually out for bribes and other crooked activities Monday, 22 January 2024 07:49 AM

    The past BASL president makes his money defending known big drug dealers. The lawyers will do anything to make easy money and clients pay more for lawyers who can get them free by any means possible.
