Magistrate Dhammika Hemapala provides 3 hour statement to CCD

Baddegama Magistrate Dhammika Hemapala has provided a 3 hour long statement to the Colombo Crimes Division(CCD) over the leaked tele conversation he had with UNP Parliamentarian Ranjan Ramanayake.

Hemapala was recently interdicted by the Judicial Service Commission(JSC) over the leaked audio.

Former High Court Judge Padmini Ranawaka and Embilipitiya High Court Judge Gihan Pilapitiya have already provided statements to the CCD over their leaked conversations with the parliamentarian.

On the 16 of January, the Attorney General (AG) directed the Director CCD to record statements from the three judges who were involved in the controversial telephone conversations with the MP.
