In a media release issued on Tuesday by minister Karunanayake, he says he will send a letter of demand to Rajapaksa demanding two billion rupees for the defamation.
"Former defence secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa has provided false information about the construction of my house in a newspaper interview. I replied him by challenging him to declare his assets if he can. I have done so by presenting all the reports of my assets,""It is about a month now without any reply. That's why I'm sending a letter of demand today asking him to pay two billion rupees as defamation charges." Karunanayake said.
