Champika Ranawaka seeks to legislate on Contempt of Court

Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) MP Patali Champika Ranawaka said yesterday he would seek to legislate on the Contempt of Court through the presentation of a private member’s bill in Parliament.

Mr. Ranawaka said the legal division of his political movement called ‘43rd Brigade’ had worked out such a piece of law.

“Today, there is no specific Act that outlines the procedure for dealing with the Contempt of Law.

It is the discretion of judges. So, I decided to try to legislate on it,” he said.
