Former monk Ruwanwelle Sobitha alias S. Shantha has been sentenced to 20 years imprisonment, after he was found guilty of having raped a 28-year-old woman in Kegalle.

The Ruwanwella Magistrate sentenced two of his accomplices, who were also found guilty of the charges, to 20 years imprisonment.

The convicts were each fined Rs.20,000 and ordered to pay Rs.200,000 as compensation to the victim. Court directed that in the event they failed to pay the fine, their jail term would be extended by another 18 months while the jail term would be extended by a further two years in case they failed to pay the compensation.

    ....Seriously 20 years is not enough specially someone with so much of knowledge and wisdom and committing such an offense .....40 would have been ideal......

    Now he can use one of the remedies which he was counceling people during their troubled periods. We can then see whether he was a genuine problem solver

    Good, he deserves such punishment. Hope he get the taste of his own medicine when he meet the prison inmates.

Ven Mahanayake Thero's duty to intervene and throw them out of sasana, rather than preaching to politicians-its a shame

    what can that poor woman do with 200,000?? it's sickening!! At least they are behind bars for 20 years. They should be castrated before going to jail!!!!

    When those who enter monkhood to spread Dhamma and preach Bana resort to breaking of Sil Pada and behave in such despicable manner, no wonder the crime rate is increasing in this country. These culprits should never be let off from the jail and then allowed to go straight to Hell to suffer more.

    Very good sentence!

    Friend , It is a devil , it may happen to you as well , the only precaution is pracising what Loard Buddah has said , but now a days people only talk and do not practice , So having knoledge alone will not protect you .

    People seem to labor under the mistaken belief that men in rob3s are any different from normal men.

    Matta Tuesday, 02 October 2012 10:40 AM

    Ought to be hanged for such crimes.. he was not a monk but an utter deceiver of people ans hence he and his gang ought to be sent to gallows...

    dilan Tuesday, 02 October 2012 10:58 AM

    He is not at all real Buddhist monk, just pretended to do all his
    business covering in the robe. he is not registered in any of the Buddhist sector in SL.
