Murali sues Field Marshal for Rs 1 bn

Former Sri Lankan Cricketer, spin bowling legend Muttiah Muralitharan has sent a Letter of Demand (LOD) to Samagi Jana Balawegaya MP Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka demanding Rs. 1 billion. This is over an alleged defamatory statement made at a politically rally held on March 15 in Colombo.

The LOD has been sent through the Themis Law Chamber on March 24. They also said that legal action will be taken against Sarath Fonseka if he fails to pay the sum of Rs. 1 Billion as compensation.

Addressing a Political rally of SJB recently, MP Sarath Fonseka had allegedly said that Muttiah Muralitharan had unlawfully obtained 2,000 acres of land from the Government in the Welikanda area and a fence has been erected blocking three elephant crossings.
