The court has ordered the state owned Lake House to pay a sum of Rs. 500 million to UNP parliamentarian Wijedasa Rajapakse following a defamation case filed by him against the Sinhala weekend newspaper, Silumina published by Lake House.

Courts have ordered Lake House to pay Rs. 500 million in damages to Rajapakse.
