“A letter of demand will be sent to the former President seeking Rs 5000 million in damage over several defamatory remarks made against me to a newspaper,” Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake said.

The observation was made at a press conference held at the Finance Ministry today (22).

“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.
