  Five youth were arrested in Negombo for harassing a Swedish tourist while she was on the Negombo beach.

  The 23 year old tourist had a lodged complaint with the tourist police post in Negombo following the incident.

She was allegedly harassed by the suspects who are between 16 and 18 year old age, the police said. The suspects are residents of the same area. They were handed over to the Negombo police and are to be produced in courts shortly. (SD & SC)

What the hell is happening in this country. It seem that the Police are not vigilant at all. IGP should take immediate action if not NO TOURISTS will arrive here.

Looks like we have a lot of sexually frustrated teens in the society now. It is going to be a big problem in the near future

Banning porn sites was one of the most stupidest things to do. it wasn't harming anyone.

Legalize Prostitution. Simple as that. It will stop domestic violence, statutory rape, wife/children abuse etc. Prostitution is rampant in our dharmishta society. May as well legalize it and control it. It can be taxed to earn some money for the treasury as well.

This is the reality of our culture. The local girls probably put up with it. Consider even in buses how they harass women?

There should be statement from the top to the nation stressing the importance of welcoming the tourists.

These youths probably thought they were welcoming the tourist, as demonstrated in the foreign films being produced nowadays.

These tourists also walk the beach with almost no clothes and make it difficult for the boys to concentrate on anything. Should look at both sides of the coin.

If this continues soon we will have hardly any tourists coming to Sri Lanka. It is high time that we start police patrols on the beach not only to protect tourists but locals as well from this menace.

This beach boy menace should be eliminated for good otherwise tourist will just shun this country in the long term. These beach boys enjoy political patronage. Its high time that the Ministry defense takes action.

High time tourist police is strengthened and punishment severed for offences of this nature. Tourists should be provided with telephone numbers to call when is distress.

Sri Lanka has long ways to go in terms of development. This problem is nothing new..it's just being recognized more because tourists are filing complaints. What about those women (locals or foreigners) who are being harassed daily in public places like buses, shops, etc.? Are they doing something about that as well?

The only practical way to prevent those degrading and highly costly to the country is to impliment the maximum punishment to those Wrong -Doers. To warrent this punishment new legislation will have to be urgently passed through the parliament. Recently there had been too many incidents with foreign tourists, severly damaging the image and reputation of the country. Could this be another manipulation of the Rump-LTTE or other anti-Govt. elements? CID must look in to this too.

Teens harassing women happen all the time in the streets of the west . Please do not sweep it under the carpet just for the sake of Tourism and money for this is bad for the tourist as well as the boys . Punish the bad behaviour as a deterrent . Some males walking on the road cast remarks even at Srilankan women if they are accompanied by a foreign looking male may be their partner . May be Srilanka is becoming another cheap Tourist destination .

Protect not only the tourist, but the local school going / teenage girls. They are abused on a daily basis physically or by mere words and nothing is done. Please protect the vulnerable.

This incident demonstrates the mindset of even school children now, which has been conditioned by knowing that many criminals get away without punishment, others are not indicted though guilty, and others have indictments against them withdrawn - by various means, including 'political'.
They also know that some tourists - male and female - come for a sexual 'fling' as part of the holiday. Our local gigolos fulfill this need - visit any tourist hotel and see the 'companions' picked up by tourists. The "beach boys" too fulfil this need. Sri Lanka is known as a pedophiles' paradise. Prostitution too, is well oganised.
