Selfie with MP: No visitors for Ranjan

Samagi Jana Balawegaya MP Ranjan Ramanayake, serving a four year prison sentence with hard labour for Contempt of Court has been banned from meeting visitors for two weeks after pleading guilty to taking selfie pictures with MP Harshana Rajakaruna who visited him, an offence under the Prisons Ordinance.

Ramanayake, who is at the Angunakolapelessa Prison was produced before  the Angunakolapelessa Prisons Superintendent yesterday (11) on a charge sheet for violating Section 78 of the Prisons Ordinance.

Prisons Commissioner (Administration and Rehabilitation) and Spokesman Chandana Ekanayake said Ramanayake had been banned from meeting visitors for two weeks after pleading guilty before the Prisons Superintendent that he had taken a selfie with MP Harshana Rajakaruna.

The Prisons Department has suspended the services of a jailer attached to the Angunakolapelessa Prison for allowing Parliamentarian Harshana Rajakaruna to bring his mobile phone into the prison premises.
