Party leaders in Parliament have taken a decision to remove all harmful content from Parliamentarian Ranjan Ramanayake’s recently tabled audio recordings.
Following inquiries in Parliament as to why MPs were unable to obtain the audios from the Hansard Department, Speaker Karu Jayasuriya had said that a final decision will be taken during today’s Party leaders’ meeting.
Accordingly, it was decided at the meeting that content harmful to national security and false claims will be deleted before making them available to MPs.
A number of voice recordings leaked to the media involving Ramanayake had revealed conversations he had with some judges, Police officers and others.
Ramanayake is currently in remand custody over some of the recordings. (Colombo Gazette)
