Heladiva files counter affidavit against Nestle, Fonterra

Mawbima Lanka Padanama, Sayuri Newspapers and Heladiva Irida Sangrahaya newspaper yesterday filed a counter affidavit and petition against Nestle Lanka Company and Fonterra Brands (Lanka) Pvt Ltd before the Colombo District Court in connection with the defamatory cases filed by the latter two against them.

Nestle Lanka Company and Fonterra Brands earlier filed four defamatory cases against Mawbima Lanka Padanama, Sayuri Newspapers and Heladiva Irida Sangrahaya newspaper and obtained enjoining orders preventing them from publishing and making statements including false facts about their products.

The newspaper filing the counter affidavit and the petition prayed before the Court to vacate the Enjoining Order issued by the Court as it had been obtained without divulging important facts to the Court.

Colombo District Judge Sampath Wijeratne ordered Nestle Lanka Company and Fonterra Brands (Lanka) Pvt Ltd to submit written submissions on April 7. The Court ordered the Mawbima Lanka Padanama, Sayuri Newspapers Pvt Ltd and Heladiva Irida Sangrahaya newspaper to file objections on May 05, to the defamatory cases filed against them.

The Court also extended the Enjoining Order till April 07. Mawbima Lanka Padanama, Sayuri Newspapers and Heladiva Irida Sangrahaya newspaper filing the petition stated that they were filing the petition to make the public aware of this fact and stated that they had sent samples of certain milk powders in the Sri Lankan Market to Eclipse Scientific Group in UK.

The report on November 12, 2008 revealed that 6.15 grams of fat is added to 100 grams of the finished product of those milk powders and they were unable to determine the nature of that fat.

Further the petition stated that Fonterra Brands Lanka in a letter to the Chairman of the Pelwatta Dairies (Pvt) Ltd Ariyaseela Wickramanayake expressed its interest to buy the spray dried milk manufactured in the latter company.

As the Pelwatte Dairies (Pvt) Ltd refused to give its products to the Fonterra Brands it had taken these actions with malicious intention.

Wijeyadasa Rajapakse (PC) appeared for Mawbima Lanka Padanama, Sayuri Newspapers and Heladiva Irida Sangrahaya newspaper.
