A defamation lawsuit will be filed against Ranjan Ramanayake, Deputy Minister of Social Empowerment and Welfare over the claims he has made in the incident in which a youth was found dead at MP Wimal Weerawansa's home, the lawyers of Weerawansa's wife Shashi Weerawansa, said yesterday.

Addressing a media briefing at the National Library and Documentation Services Board, Attorney-at-law Premnath Dolawatte further said, that due to the false claims made by Ramanayake and several other individuals, Weerawansa's family, specially his 15-year-old daughter had to go through psychological trauma.

Dolawatte elaborated, "The Court Case over the incident finished two months ago. During the magisterial inquiry, it was proved that the youth passed away due to the natural causes. But several people used this tragic death as an opportunity to launch mudslinging campaigns at Wimal Weerawansa and family. Shashi Weerawansa and her daughter became victims of these foul campaigns."

Now, the truth has been revealed. So, it is the right time to take action against people who were behind such mudslinging campaigns, Dolawatte said and noted that they are collecting information on people like Ranjan Ramanayake who made false claims to file a defamation lawsuit.
