The case against former United National Party (UNP) General Secretary Tissa Attanayake over alleged forged documents, has terminated after both parties came to a settlement.  

Accordingly, the High Court Judge was informed by the attorneys today that the conflicting parties had come to a settlement and therefore would like to withdraw from the court case.

Mr. Attanayake is alleged to have published a letter with forged signatures of the common Opposition candidate Maithripala Sirisena and the then Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe during the 2015 Presidential Election.

However, the case will be taken up on April 4, 2019.
