The Sunday Leader has presented an unconditional apology to ex-Defense Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa in courts for a slanderous publication regarding MIG aircraft procurements.

The defamation case filed by Gotabaya Rajapaksa against Lasantha Wickrematunge and the Sunday Leader on its reporting on MiG 27 purchase by the Defense Ministry was taken up at the District Court of Mt. Lavinia yesterday.

The Sri Lankan weekly newspaper (Sunday Leader), in its article, had alleged huge financial fraud during the buying of the aircraft.
