Sanjay Rajaratnam appointed Acting Solicitor General

Senior Additional Solicitor General Sanjay Rajaratnam has been appointed as Acting Solicitor General by Public Service Commission(PSC) with immediate effect.

Rajaratnam will replace Solicitor General Dilrukshi Dias Wickramasinghe who was interdicted by the PSC on the 24 September over an alleged incriminating tele conversation with Avant-Garde Chairman Nissanka Senadhipathi.

In the leaked recording, the female voice purported to be Wickramasinghe’s can be heard saying “I know how to break the law and make the law.” She also expressed her regrets over filing the Avant-Garde case while blaming the country’s disorderly politics as the reason behind the case.
