Six suspects were remanded following the Daily Mirror story about a group of Dutch tourists being assaulted at the Water Creatures Beach Guest Restaurant & Surf Bar in Mirissa.

Police Media Spokesman Ruwan Gunasekara said the suspects were arrested by the Weligama Police and produced in the Matara Magistrate’s Court.

He said they would be produced at an identification parade.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority (SLTDA) said it would sponsor the victims’ return to Sri Lanka to give evidence.

SP Gunasekara said in the wake of this incident a block of land had been acquired to set up a tourist police in Mirissa.

A Dutchman and two women tourists were reported to have been brutally assaulted at Mirissa on April 8 when resisting attempts of sexual harassment. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    Make hay while the sun shine, buy a plot of land and build a police post, whenever a serious compalint is received straightaway buy a plot of land and set up a Police Post then order weapons, uniforms, advertise for new recruits, etc.

    Thank you Daily mirror for publishing the story and SLTDA for supporting to deliver justice. These animals should be given maximum sentences so other simillar minded offspring will know the repercussions for such a deplorable behaviour.

    Only now they think of establishing tourist police post in this location where tourists frequent? Next they'll call this move being pro-active. I feel its too little too late.

    It took a hue and cry for action to be taken. These uncivilized southern monkeys think they can getaway with any criminal act similar to those they did in the north, aluthgama and kandy.
