JVP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake has sent a letter of demand claiming Rs.10 billion each as damages from Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) General Secretary Sagara Kariyawasam and Parliamentarian Tissa Kuttiarachchi for allegedly making a defamatory statement regarding him during a public meeting held on August 19 in Colombo.

SLPP General Secretary MP Sagara Kariyawasam and MP Tissa Kuttiarachchi had allegedly made remarks regarding allegations against National People's Power (NPP) over its alleged investments in the island country of Malta. 
This letter of demand has been sent through Attorney-at-law Sunil Watagala urging both Kariyawasam and Kuttiarachchi to pay a sum of Rs.20 billion as damages within 14 days. It has warned that legal action will be instituted against the duo at a civil court if the money is not paid within two weeks.
 
Attorney-at-law Watagala said he was instructed by his client that statements made by the two Parliamentarians to the public were unfounded, absolutely false, baseless, malicious and in itself defamatory. It further stated that statements made by two Parliamentarians are defamatory and had been made with the intention of tarnishing the JVP leader’s reputation and to commit an injury (animus injuriandi) to bring him into ridicule.

    A very good move obviously.

    Grace Tuesday, 22 August 2023 04:30 PM

    Very wise move. Don't leave the heartless creatures.

    Sokrates Tuesday, 22 August 2023 05:32 PM

    This is pure propaganda. Any court will reject this claim. Any idiot involved in politics has to live with having any claims made about him, true or false.

    I hope this will go beyond LOD and AKD actually files a defamation case against them. It would be a big void otherwise.

    Bandu Tuesday, 22 August 2023 06:42 PM

    Not the first time LODs issued but then they fizzle out. Hope it comes to Court to know the truth.

    Washing and breaking pots. Nobody cares. Compensate country all together.

    I do not favour to NPP or any party. However this is a very good move to teach a lesson to Sagara and other man those who are responsible for the current position of the country. However, if not continue the matter, we will have to accept the facts disclosed by the duo.

    Great hope you win. I am sure the money will be spent on the poor. This is redistribution of money from the criminals to the rightful owners.

    It was 10billion now 20billion what a joke which such monies they could payoff major part of the country's debt

    Gamini Wednesday, 23 August 2023 09:44 AM

    So AKD plans to hit a jack pot and retire from politics

    J.M. Fernando [Attorney-at-Law] Wednesday, 23 August 2023 10:24 AM

    Very good move, OfCourse Kariyawasam and Kutti should be punished for their foul talks against you. Good luck, you are the winner and will get your prize money without any doubt.

    D.K.G. Dissanayake (Retired ASP) Wednesday, 23 August 2023 10:33 AM

    Kutty - you are un-educated studied up to grade 8 and selling rotten fruits in the streets wearing a dirty sarong, you don't have any culture and you are not civilized. You don't know the value of your dirty lies which comes from your stinking mouth. Be careful, anytime anything will happen to you after AKD gets his 20 billion from you two guys.

    Tissa Kuttiarachchi tell MR to provide extra security for your house, maybe that house will be set fire soon. Don't play games with Anura Kumara Aiya, if you do so - that's your end. Warning to Kariyawasam too.

    Dakuneyaka Wednesday, 23 August 2023 11:37 AM

    AKD cant handle the bitter Truth? This type of false allegations are what he has been doing all the time in the past !
