Solicitor General Dilrukshi Dias interdicted

The Public Service Commission (PSC) has interdicted Solicitor General Dilrukshi Dias Wickramasinghe with immediate effect over an alleged incriminating tele conversation with Avant-Garde chairman Nissanka Senadhipathi.
The Attorney General yesterday referred the matter of the leaked voice recording to the Public Service Commission (PSC) for preliminary investigations.
Senadhipathi who is allegedly receiving medical treatment in Singapore, released an audio clip of a tele conversation that discussed the case filed by the Bribery Commission against Avant-Garde Maritime Services .
In the 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.
So far Wickramasinghe has not denied the conversation between her and Senadhipathi.
President Maithripala Sirisena, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesingh and Justice Minister Thalatha Athukorale have also voiced their opinions of the issue.
