Leader of the Opposition Sajith Premadasa claims international support will have to be sought to seek the release of former Parliamentarian Ranjan Ramanayake.
He said a group of Samagi Jana Balawegaya Parliamentarians led by MP Harin Fernando will intervene in this regard.
MP Premadasa speaking to media after visiting Ramanayake who is at the Welikada Prison urged that Ranjan Ramanayake be released in the name of humanity.
He said given the present circumstances they will seek international support to secure his release, adding that if they can’t claim this win locally they will obtain international support through all legal and democratic measures.
Ramanayake is currently serving a four-year prison term after being found guilty on contempt of court for allegedly making a controversial statement regarding the composition of a Supreme Court judge bench.
