Fernando tweeted saying he has sent a letter of demand through Weeraratne and once the proposed action is concluded whatever damages he may get will go to a fund to assist the coronavirus victims.
Yesterday, in a letter sent by Weeraratne’s lawyers the musician accused Fernando of making defamatory claims at a recent media briefing.
He also accused Fernando of making false claims with regards to a controversial video circulating on social media.
Weeraratne had demanded that Fernando immediately cease making defamatory claims against him and provide a written assurance in this regard within 14 days.
If Fernando fails to comply Weeraratne has threatened to take legal action and seek monetary damages. (Colombo Gazette)
