Aluthgamage Vs. Amunugama

By L.B.Senaratna

Two former ministers are now locked in a legal row over the disruption of polls in the Kandy District.
Former Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage has demanded Rs. 500 million from former Minister Sarath Amunugama for allegedly making defamatory comments in an interview given to our sister paper Lankadeepa.

Mr. Aluthgamage's lawyer had written to Mr. Amunugama claiming that the article in question had caused 'animus injuria' to his client's good name and reputation. Animus injuria is a Latin phrase which roughly translates to injury or harm to one's reputation.

Mr. Aluthgamage is also suing UNP candidate Sarath Gamini Hettiarachchi for allegedly accusing him of disrupting the polling in the Nawalpitiya Electorate.
