Actor-politico Ranjan Ramanayake has been arrested by Police for alleged contempt of court, Police Spokesman Superintendent Jaliya Senaratne told RepublicNext.

He said Ramanayake has been taken in under Section 110 of the Constitution.

Reports say the Attorney General had ordered police to arrest the actor MP after recordings of telephone conversations he had had with various people flooded social media.

The Ranjan tapes have rocked the country as his conversations with leading politicians, police officers and even judges have threatened the rule of law.
