The Scotsman James Casserly, who was allegedly assaulted by Minister Mervin Silva’s son Malaka at a nightclub on Friday said he feared for his life.

 

He told Daily Mirror that after the incident he did not leave his home after what happened to him and his girlfriend had been splashed across media networks.

 

“I did not know that the man who assaulted me is a minister’s son. On Friday (31), I and my girlfriend Belinda went to the R&B night club for a Halloween party. Suddenly a man came up to us and started harassing Belinda. I tried to protect her from him when about seven men came walked up to us and began assaulting me,” Mr. Casserly, an engineer currently residing in Sri Lanka, said

 

He said none of those present in the nightclub came to their assistance.

 

“I was covering my head. Then Belinda came held on to me. Then they assaulted her as well. She too was injured,” Mr. Casserly said.

 

Mr. Casserly and Belinda Mackenzie showed us their bruises. They said after the brawl they went to the police station but did not go to a hospital as they were scared.

 

He said he was suffering from blurred vision and was worried it would affect his profession as an engineer and hoped to claim compensation for what happened to him.

 

“I love to work in Sri Lanka and I love the people. I have been in this country for a year and nothing unpleasant has happened before. But I do not know what may happen now because of my blurred vision. I may be sent back to my country if I am not fit to work. My hopes to settle down in Sri Lanka have also gone to pieces,” Mr. Casserly said. (Chathushika Wijeyesinghe)

    How can Sri Lanka promote tourism with the likes of these thugs with high connections? It may be that the President will have to interfere in this. A very strong deterrent punishment should be given.

    Banning malaka entering night clubs would be a good decision. via DM Android App

    Change your story. Say that you first hit your girl friend and then you hit yourself. Nothing will happen. Welcome to Sri Lanka, the miracle of asia.

    What a shame for Sri Lanka. This is the new Chinthanaya culture which one said is being taught in Universities overseas. Shameless statements.

    Mr President , any one men and women who seek nomination to contest at any election must prodce a police report. Any person who has been fined or punished should not be eligible to contest at any election.Please pass a bill to make this requirement legal.That is the only way to eliminate thugs / criminals becoming MPs.

    This is not the first time Malaka Silva has been accused of harassing women in nightclubs. Its high time he is punished for his disgusting and uncivilized behavior.

    Sudath Wednesday, 05 November 2014 10:21 AM

    So Who assaulted Malaka?

    Rana Wednesday, 05 November 2014 10:42 AM

    Oh Gosh....This is not the place to settle down.... Go home man... run for life...

    Dr L A Nanayakkara Wednesday, 05 November 2014 10:48 AM

    Dear James Casserly, We are ashamed of goon like this man who assaulted you. He needs to go to prison. Since you have a blurred vision following the attack that means it is a grievous hurt. You take maximum support from British Embassy and go for a compensation claim, the maximum possible. You can not and you do not have to work, because of this disability. you can claim over Rs 100 million. This man needs to learn the lesson of his life. We are on your side, not me alone, most of the people in Sri Lanka.

    suranjith lal Wednesday, 05 November 2014 10:50 AM

    As the Father of Malaka, at least Minister Mervin must meet this couple and apologies for what his son has done to them and give them assurance for their feeling. otherwise this will be an another very bad publicity against sri Lanka nation.

    WHAT A SAD STORY

    christo Wednesday, 05 November 2014 11:03 AM

    I would say he does not suffer from blurred vision , but can now see clearly ..

    shiranee Wednesday, 05 November 2014 11:14 AM

    High time the president get involved. .This character is notorious and this is a common occurrence. It brings shame to presidents sons too however those boys know to behave and they have not lost it like this guy.

    Just Another Citizen Wednesday, 05 November 2014 11:20 AM

    Sad state of affairs, this is the rule of la in Sri Lanka.

    Bua Wednesday, 05 November 2014 11:21 AM

    Now he can see more clearly what is Sri Lanka and who is ruling... He can go back to his country and tell about the wonder of Asia..

    ANTON Wednesday, 05 November 2014 11:21 AM

    THE MAIN REASON BEHIND THIS IS HIGH SEXUAL DESIRE OF SOME OF OUR MORONS., SPECIALLY AFTER LIQUOR.

    nizamhm1944 Wednesday, 05 November 2014 11:31 AM

    All Sri Lankans are peace lovers except some of the dirty Politicians,corrupted Religious rowdies, and their stooges.

    Kelaniya kolla Wednesday, 05 November 2014 11:33 AM

    Scotman, leave the country soon. Find out what happened to the national television staff in 2007.

    ranmal Wednesday, 05 November 2014 11:41 AM

    These perverts think that every white skinned woman should give in to their sexual desire. Another pervert killed a Britisher and is now behind bars. that too because of the pressure exerted by the British govt. otherwise he would be free.

    Mikie.e.e Wednesday, 05 November 2014 12:08 PM

    This place is not for civilized people............just a bunch fools playing around with ill earned money............

    Sonali De Silva Wednesday, 05 November 2014 12:24 PM

    Why the govt or the law is not putting this piece of thrash away is beyond any intelligent persons comprehension. His father must be a very proud man to have a son who is nothing but a common thug.

    Maheshwaran Appu Wednesday, 05 November 2014 12:38 PM

    I feel sorry for 100,000 voters of Gampaha district who elected this Thug to the parliament.
