I’m not a conspirator - Former PM

Former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe denied allegations levelled against him by Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage regarding a telephone conversation between himself and MP Ranjan Ramanayake plotting to assassinate Aluthgamage.

“I am not a conspirator. As soon as I knew about this I made a statement in parliament. This is in the Hansard. These CDs were taken over by the police from Ranjan Ramanayake’s residence in Madiwela. Therefore, the Speaker could ask the police to get a hold of these CDs and if anyone has been involved in such an incident, then he could let the House know.”

Wickremesinghe said he was not that type of a person. He said during the raid on MP Ramanayake’s residence the police had taken some tapes into custody.

However, he said it was questionable as to how these tapes were being circulated in the media and social media.

Therefore, Wickremesinghe called on the police to take these tapes into custody and conduct an investigation and initiate action against anyone who has committed any crime that they may have committed.
