Speaking to media after visiting Ranjan Ramanayake this morning, MP Premadasa requested the President to issue Ramanayake a pardon tomorrow on humanitarian grounds.
The Opposition Leader said they hope the former MP will be released as he has served the public by even contributing his salary and allowances to the public.
