The Nugegoda Magistrate's Court today granted bail to MP Ranjan Ramanayake, who was been remanded.

President's Counsel MA Sumanthiran appeared for the MP and Deputy Solicitor General Dileepa Peiris who appeared for the Attorney General's Department refused to grant bail saying that Ramanayake's bail could have caused a public uproar.

However, the Magistrate has granted bail to the MP stating that there is no evidence that such a disturbance could occur.

He was remanded after being arrested by the Colombo Crimes Division (CID) over the controversial voice recording.
