A spokesperson for the High Commission told Daily Mirror that officials of the High Commission “are currently in touch with the authorities”.
The spokesperson further said that, until the High Commission receives verification from the Sri Lankan authorities, they could not comment on further steps that would be taken. 

Malaka Silva, the son of controversial Minister Mervyn Silva is alleged to have assaulted a Scotsman on Saturday night at a night club in Bambalapitiya.

    What about taking action against all the British hippies who have overstayed their visa. some have absconding after not paying their hotel bills and those rowdies who have got on board our national carrier Sri Lankan Airline and creating bomb scares. These British rascals should be whipped and hanged like in Saudi Arabia. These hippie think we are still a British colony!

    Killing the British boyfriend and raping his girlfriend has become a trend among the goons of ruling party of SL.

    YE British HC, we would like to hear about the findings in the murder of a srilankan boy in England who was brutally murdered when delivering pizza, a few months back.

    IF Only international involved we get justice this is called banana republic

    dingbat Monday, 03 November 2014 07:36 PM

    so that gives the right to assault them??? Jacky would it be ok for someone to assault you if you behaved differently? is that the kind of law and order you prefer?

    BabaBoo Monday, 03 November 2014 09:56 AM

    That is big trouble for these two "so called patriots".

    What a moronic comment. You are a bottom feeder.

    R.R.Rohan Monday, 03 November 2014 10:02 AM

    This is the culture that this country is experiencing now, the country is spending millions on infrastructure and advertising to attract tourists but this kind of behaviour from politicians is going to do lots of damage. Even the rule of law is different to them.

    Abr Monday, 03 November 2014 09:23 PM

    Jackie you are another jack ass. People like you too should be put behind bars.

    Nadeeka Monday, 03 November 2014 11:20 AM

    I am definitely sure government will release this thugs as soon as possible. We are waiting for next election .

    Viranga Monday, 03 November 2014 11:43 AM

    Your Excellency British High Commissioner, if you wont involved in this the two injured British tourists will not get justice. This is Miracle of Asia.

    Upali Tuesday, 04 November 2014 12:02 PM

    What a brilliant idea!! When the Government is trying hard to promote tourism in Sri Lanka, we should tell British to get "Lost". By the way how about the Portuguese, Dutch, Spanish and even the Indians. It would not be long before we add Chinese to the band wagon. Ha! Ha!! Ha!!!

    clifford Tuesday, 04 November 2014 12:46 PM

    This is a western capitalist conspiracy to tarnish the image if the great son of Mervin Siva (Dr).They had put a sexy British whore in front of innocent Malaka and got him excited ( sex cited)and then all other things happened.so say wimal Weerawansa told so to me.

    sim Tuesday, 04 November 2014 12:58 PM

    Jacky, are you a witness to this.

    Tintin Wednesday, 05 November 2014 01:43 AM

    Tintin Wednesday, 05 November 2014 01:44 AM
