Wickramaratne to submit copies of audio and video recordings of 12 telephone conversations between Parliamentarian Ranjan Ramanayake and interdicted High Court Judge Gihan Pilapitiya for his consideration.

The AG had directed Wickramaratne to immediately invoke the judicial process in Pilapitiya’s case. (Colombo Gazette)
