Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa yesterday said that the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) will seek the support of the international community to get former Parliamentarian Ranjan Ramanayake released from jail.
Addressing the media after visiting Ramanayake at the Welikada Prison yesterday, the Opposition Leader said a group of SJB Parliamentarians led by MP Harin Fernando will intervene in obtaining the support of international community to ensure the release of Ramanayake.
“We are engaged in a democratic struggle to ensure his release from the prison. Ranjan Ramanayake could have done more service to the people, if he had not been behind bars”, he said.
The Opposition Leader said that he requested the government to release him soon. “I made a number of requests to the President to ensure his early release from jail,” he said.
