Relating to a video being circulated on social media where a senior official at the Condominium Management Authority (CMA) is allegedly soliciting sexual bribe from a female employee in 2015, the Housing Ministry has recorded statements from the relevant individuals.

CMA Chairman Sarana Karunaratna told Daily Mirror that an inquiry was launched by the internal audit department of the State Ministry of Rural Housing and Construction & Building Material Industries following an anonymous letter received by the Ministry Secretary this year.

He said the statements were recorded from the official, the victim and a third party.

“However, no complaint has been made in relation to the incident even by the victim or anyone else,” Mr. Karunaratne said adding that the senior official and the victim were still working at the CMA.  (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    Since Time immemorial men have been getting sexual favours from young women working under them. Men wants enjoyment and the young women wants job security and promotions. Look in this case the woman involved did not complain but someone had taken a video of the incident put in the social media. In recent times as more women get to hold powerful jobs, men too have become victims of over sexed women bosses. So it is not gender but who holds the power.

    The investigation will go under the carpet. He will call a few politicians and cover up everything. Usual scenario in Banana Republic.

    When you don't protect the identity of the victim, no body will come forward to complain, specially in the sexual harassment cases.
