MP Ranjan Ramanayake appearing before Parliament for the first time since his arrest posed an open challenge to the government to probe into his phone conversations.

This was as the MP joined the parliamentary debate today (21). 

Ramanayake who is currently in remand custody appeared before Parliament today in order to deliver a special statement. However, the Speaker informed the chambers that such opportunity cannot be granted in terms of standing orders. 

The MP accordingly joined the parliamentary debate and said that he never influenced the Judiciary or the Police. Accordingly, the MP requested the government to appoint a Commission in order to investigate in to his voice tapes, adding that he takes full responsibility for his actions, thereby divulging many information with much confidence. 

Ramanayake added that he would appear before such Commission with piles of voice tapes, files and even video footage, implying that they would reveal irregularities even committed by people in the government. 

There are many phone conversations featuring people who are in the present government that have been recorded and kept in safe storage, the MP revealed.
