Colombo (News 1st); The writ application filed by Ranjan Ramanayake against any action on his parliamentary seat was rejected by the Court of Appeal without permitting it to be taken up for examination on Monday (05).

Upon considering the Writ Application filed by Ranjan Ramanayaka in this regard, Court of Appeal President Arjuna Obeysekera and Justice Mayadunne Corea ordered for the decision to be delivered on Monday.

On the 12th of January 2021, the Supreme Court found Ranjan Ramanayake guilty of Contempt of Court and sentenced him to four (04) years in rigorous imprisonment.

Thereafter, Ranjan Ramanayake filed a Writ Application with the Court of Appeal requesting for an interim injunction to be issued preventing any attempt to make his parliamentary seat vacant.

The Attorney General and the Secretary-General of Parliament were named as respondents in the application.
