“In the article, former President Mahinda Rajapaksa has expressed that there are corruption charges against the present Finance Minister. He attempts make us accountable for corruptions to cover-up allegations leveled against him. I will send a letter of demand seeking Rs 5000 million in damage over these remarks,” said Karunanayake.
He went into say that a letter of demand will also be sent to the newspaper which published the said article.
“Those who need Rajapaksa’s come back in power want nothing, but to cover-up the wrongdoings that they had committed during their decade in power,” he added.
