Rajapaksha is to sue Fonseka for Rs. 500 million as damages for the statement he had made yesterday.
Fonseka had yesterday accused Rajapaksha of taking bribes and attempting to hide facts relating to the Avant Garde issue.
Field Marshall Sarath Fonseka said that he had made a similar statement on Rajapaksha even during the August 17 Parliament election period and he stands by that statement even today. (Colombo Gazette)
