The Colombo Commercial High Court today (11) ordered National Freedom Front (NFF) leader Wimal Weerawansa to pay Rs 10 million in compensation to Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) General Secretary Tilvin Silva.

The court ordered Wimal Weerawansa to pay the above compensation for publishing and distributing a book titled Neththa Wenuwata Eththa which violated the Intellectual Property Act.

The petition was filed by Tilvin Silva accusing Wimal Weerawansa of violating intellectual properties rights by using information the latter presented to the JVP Working Committee.

The court said that the rights of the book must be granted to Tilvin Silva.
