Dilith's summons delivered late? (Video)

The Letter of Demand (LoD) with regard to yesterday's enjoining order issued against MTV Channel Ltd, was only received around 4.00pm today (24), 'News First' reports.

The LoD was over a defamation case filed by George Steuart Health Ltd., over defamatory news broadcast on its prime time news telecasts.

The Plaint referred to several false and defamatory news segments carried out by Sirasa on News First on 11, 13, 16 and 19 November referring to the import of COVID-19 rapid antigen test kits by George Steuart Health.

However, MTV points out that a private courier service had delivered the LoD to its head office only today evening.
