Mar 24, 2015 (LBO) – Sri Lanka's finance minister, Ravi Karunanayake has threatened to send a letter of demand to former defense secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa for what he calls 'false charges' being leveled against him.

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.

Two billion rupees is pea nuts for Rajapakse's family and if the finance minister's threat is real, he will pay it with interest, eyes closed.We have so far heard of many threats from the Govt.,but nothing materialised. We expected that some people will be in jail after the Election but, they are in the cabinet now. So goes the stories of govt threats
