Foreign Employment Minister Manusha Nanayakkara offered to appoint Ranjan Ramanayake as a Goodwill Ambassador to promote Sri Lankan migrant worker welfare globally. 

After Ramanayake’s release from prison, Nanayakkara tweeted “I just offered Ramanayake a position as a Goodwill Ambassador to promote Sri Lankan migrant worker welfare globally upon his release and he gladly accepted. This is a voluntary position to make use of his tacit knowledge in the area of foreign employment.”

Ramanayake was granted a conditional Presidential Pardon by President Ranil Wickremesinghe and released from prison on 26 August.

Following his conviction, Ramanayake’s parliamentary seat was abolished on 7 April 2021.
