TNA Media Spokesperson and Parliamentarian MA Sumanthiran says he will take legal action against three newspapers for distorting and publishing a statement he made at an election stage.
The MP states that the newspaper had published a fake news yesterday (Nov. 12) stating that the people should vote for Sajith to defeat the Sinhalese. The MP further stated that he strongly disagrees with the statement, however, that the statement has been published by two other newspapers today (Nov. 13).
Mr. Sumanthiran stated that he has taken steps to send letters of demand seeking compensation to the three newspapers through his lawyers for insulting him. The MP further stated that he has written to the IGP filing a complaint under the ICCPR Act for inciting hatred among communities.
