Dilith sends LoD to BBC Sandeshaya
Colombo (Srilankamirror) - Joint Managing Director of Triad Advertising Dilith Jayaweera has sent Letters of Demand to British Broadcasting Corporation for broadcasting an interview with Shan Wickremesinghe of TNL Network (Pvt) Ltd on Sandeshaya BBC Sinhala Service on 26th October 2011 and for carrying an article quoting the same allegations on the BBC Sinhala.com website of the same date.
Letters were dispatched to both BBC, UK and its local representative office last week demanding a sum of 5 million Sterling Pounds each and Jayaweera is awaiting a response.
Considering the unfounded allegations made in the above publications, Jayaweera plans to file defamatory charges against Sandeshaya BBC Sinhala Service and BBC Sinhala.com in the event that this demand is not met.
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.
