A man who was arrested for allegedly sexually harassing a father of two, who had came all the way from Embilipitiya to work as a mason, was ordered to be released on bail by a Colombo Court today.

The 22-year-old victim in his complaint to the Slave Island police said he was a resident of Embilipitiya and had come to Colombo seeking a job as a Mason. He said that he was able to find a job at a building construction site in Nawam Mawatha, Colombo 2. The victim told police that he was compelled to dial emergency telephone number 119 since he was sexually harassed by a security officer attached to the same workplace while he was sound asleep at night.

Police had arrested the suspect, a resident of Dematagoda and produced him before the Colombo Fort Magistrate. The Slave Island police alleged that the suspect, the security officer, had committed a punishable offence that comes under section 345 of the Penal Code. Police further alleged that he had also committed an unnatural offence which comes under section 365 of the Penal Code.

When the suspect was produced before Magistrate Gihan Pilapitiya, he was ordered to be rleased on a surety bail of Rs.50, 000. (Lakmal Sooriyagoda)

    A 22 yr old and a father of two. woah.. what a responsibility he has early in life. Pity these kids getting married so early with the current economic situation and choose to have kids so early. Sadly he is a mason, he could have educated himself and found a better job for the betterment of him and his family. worse yet is that a father of 2 being sexually harassed by another male.. What length has homosexuality gone to is a question to ponder...

    God created ADAM and EVE NOT Adam and STEVE nor EVE and EVA" anything going against nature has its repercussions...

    Looks like the surety bail of 50,000 has become a standard now, anyway look at what's happening to the country, it's people and their values, pathetic

    Nonsense! This is a pure "Sinhala Buddhists" nation. This is the purest "dharmarajya"

    This is clearly an international conspiracy to tarnish a spotless image of the "Sinhala Buddhists". This is clear jealousy by foriegners because the "Sinhala Buddhists" are the inventors of all modern technology thanks to their "Ravana" knowledge! !

    The Law which is stipulated in the jurisprudence have to carry out amendments to say: sexually differently -abled. Law itself is too old in this 21st century. Some people cannot enjoy wholesome fruits and some do.
