An American woman on a visit to Sri Lanka has in a complaint to the Colpetty police alleged that a Sri Lankan youth had spat on her, used criminal force and had insulted her while at a leading shopping mall in Colpetty.
She said she was a student and in the country as a tourist and alleged that the youth might have been about 25 years of age.
The police told Colombo Fort Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne that they had identified the suspect through the use of CCTV cameras. She directed the police to investigate the matter and report to court on July 28. (Lakmal Sooriyagoda)

There are so many civilised places in the world. Why did she go to Sri Lanka?

This shows how much the youth of this country are being brain washed. This youth should be warned and should apologies in public to this lady and also pay her compensation.

Do not be judgmental my dear till you know the truth. "Do not judge and you shall not be judged"

The shop management is fully responsible for this harassment to their customer. Their security staff should have taken control of the despicable behavior within seconds.

I dont want to justify this insident. But remember worse humiliations take place towards sri lankans at western and many other embassies as well as in their countries on daily basis. whom to complain then?
Percy Tuesday, 26 July 2011 03:00 AM
Rajiv, You arev correct. Brain washing actually took place in the North for over 3 decades. Over an isolated incident people make a big noice as if this a perfect world. In Norway man kills over 80 of his own countrymen!

This is what our political leaders have done to the country. I feel sorry for the youth who don't get any proper leader to be a good example.
