The Caroline jury was named "Mrs World" in 2020.

Speaking to reporters outside a police station in Colombo, Pushpika de Silva said she would withdraw the case if the Caroline jury apologized in public, but the former titleholder refused to apologize.

De Silva also said, "I tried to resolve the matter out of court, but the Caroline jury refused."

"I can forgive, but I can't forget," de Silva added.

According to the report, Caroline Jury had claimed that de Silva was not entitled to the title of Mrs Sri Lanka as she was divorced. To compete in the Sri Lankan contest, de Silva must be married and separated from her husband, although she is legally married.
