Damitha, Semini dispute settled


Two popular film and tele-drama actresses, who had sued each other for millions in damages over allegations that they had insulted each other, withdrew their civil suits filed before Colombo District Judge Yvonne Fernando today after they resolved the matter.

Actress Semini Iddamalgoda sued actress Damintha Abeyratne for Rs 50 million  having allegedly defamed her during an interview she had with a private radio channel on January 13 last year by making offensive remarks against Semini.

Damitha Abeyratne filed a counter claiming Rs 10 million   against Ms. Iddamalgoda in the District Court accusing her of having damaged her reputation by false allegations.
