The general secretary of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) Sagara Kariyawasam says he is eagerly awaiting a filing of a court case against him by JVP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake.
Kariyawasam told journalists yesterday (29) that he has received a letter of demand from Dissanayake for a Rs. 10 billion compensation over remarks he had made at the SLPP Colombo Central convention on 18 August.
The SLPP MP said a court case against him by Dissanayake would allow him to pose a number of questions which normal circumstances would not permit.
Among these would be the number of tanks he had built with Treasury’s funding when he was the irrigation and agriculture minister and the monies which he alleges Mahinda Rajapaksa and Basil Rajapaksa had swindled.
Dissanayake should also give proof of his charges that Namal Rajapaksa had imported several Lamborghini cars, and with regard to Hambantota port, Mattala airport, expressways and Colombo port city as well as the monies he had claimed that were sent by the Rajapaksas to Uganda, said Kariyawasam.
