Naula Magistrate Rangani Gamage has told a Magistrate in the Waymaba Province that she had never complained against the Judicial Services Commission (JSC) Secretary Manjula Thilekaratne to the President or any other person.
Gamage was summoned by the JSC on the 1st to inquire about an affidavit allegedly given by her father that she had been subjected to unwanted advances by the JSC Secretary.
The Naula Magistrate had told the other Magistrate that she had expressed her shock at the complaint before the Supreme Court judges inquiring into the matter saying she had not given any affidavit to the effect and that she believed her father would have not given such a document as well. Gamage had said she had told the inquiring committee that she had not heard of any such complaint until she had appeared before them.
She had been disgruntled that her name had been sued to sling mud at the JSC Secretary. She had added that a request was made by her from the JSC to give her a transfer to another magistrate’s court since she was unable to continue at the Naula Magistrate’s Court.
The Wayamba Province Magistrate who gave us the information said that the young Naula Magistrate is under great mental stress over the whole saga.
