The National Heritage Ministry said today it would take legal action against the company that had produced a Beer commercial disgracing the Sigiriya national heritage site.

“The Sri Lankan company had created the beer commercial for a Japanese beverage company by convincing the archeological department that the commercial was for an energy drink,” Minister Jagath Balasuriya said.

The Department had only granted permission to the company to create a commercial to do with an energy drink by using Sigiriya in the background but without harming the site. (Lahiru Pothmulla DM Online)
