The Colombo District Court today issued an interim injunction against TNL and Shan Wickremasinghe preventing them from publishing any defamatory article on Dilith Jayaweera.

An enjoining order was initially issued on November 16, 2011 preventing TNL TV and Isira Radio, and its chairman Shan Wickremasinghe from causing any defamatory publications against Dilith Jayaweera.
It was given consequent to an action instituted by Dilith Jayaweera at the District Court of Colombo.
Jayaweera has already sent a Letter of Demand claiming Rs 500 million to Shan Wickremesinghe and his co-host on TNL Isira Radio ‘Dasadesin Puwathpath’ programme, Mr.Sudath Jaysundera for comments made on the show.

The letter states that Jayaweera suffered “loss of reputation, goodwill and dignity as well as pain of mind” and estimates compensation for these damages to be Rs.500 million.

Wickremasinghe and Jayasundera claimed that funds used by Jayaweera in stock trading was generated through drug trafficking and money laundering.
