* Sri Lanka Democratic Party leader's former media secretary ready to reveal truth about him in courts
Thu, Jul 3, 2014, 12:39 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

July 02, Colombo: The former media secretary of Sarath Fonseka, the discredited former army commander and the leader of Sri Lanka's Democratic Party, said today that he is ready to reveal the truth of his former employer after Fonseka slapped him with a law suit.

Sanjeewa Samarasinghe, former Media secretary of Fonseka told media today that he is ready to reveal the truth that the general public does not know about Fonseka.

Fonseka's party filed a Rs. 100 million law suit in the Colombo High Court Tuesday (July 01) against Samarasinghe, who was the former coordinating secretary of the Democratic Party, demanding Rs. 500 million for allegedly making defamatory remarks on the leader.

The case has been filed over a briefing given to a newspaper by Samarasinghe recently. He has been ordered to file his statement in defense before 08 July.

The Democratic Party told Lankapuvath that it had sent Samarasinghe a letter of demand to show cause as to why he had acted in a defamatory manner through electronic and print media about Fonseka in the recent past but had not received any response from him and were compelled to take legal action against him.

However, Samarasinghe says he considers this as a great opportunity for him to appear before the Supreme Court and reveal the truth about Sarath Fonseka.
