Govt. urges Chief Justice to probe leaked audios

The Government today(9) said that the Chief Justice should launch an investigation into leaked audio clips involving High Court Judges.

Government Spokesperson Minister Keheliya Rambukwella made these comments during the cabinet press briefing in Colombo today.

He said many of the recordings clearly show that the Justice system was compromised in the past years.

“The Chief Justice as the head of the Judicial Services Commission should launch an impartial  investigation into these recordings and restore hope in the Judiciary,” Rambukwella added.

Several incriminating audio recordings between former State Minister Ranjan Ramanayake and public offices including Judges surfaced on social media following a raid at Ramanayake’s house over the weekend.
