A special appeal was filed at the Supreme Court today (01) seeking a revision of the judgment against Ranjan Ramanayake, who was sentenced to four years of rigorous imprisonment for contempt of Court.

The petition filed by Attorney-at-Law Dinesh Vidanapathirana, representing Ramanayake was rejected by the Supreme Court on the ground that there was no legal provision for its registration at the Supreme Court. Therefore, it was received only as a motion with regard to the relevant case.

The contempt of court case was heard by Justices Sisira de Abrew, Vijith K. Malalgoda and Preethi Padman Surasena. The trial-at-bar sentenced him to four years of rigorous imprisonment, a fine of Rs. 100,000 and court fee of Rs. 50,000.
