A Chinese national working in the Norochcholai Coal Power plant project was arrested by the Mundalama police for allegedly raping a fourteen year old school girl.

Investigations revealed that the suspect had been working in the project as an electrician, Police Media Spokesman SP Preshantha Jayakody said.

According to SP Jayakody, the Chinese national had allegedly invited the victim into a lorry that was parked near the Mundalama Water Tank and raped her.

The suspect had then fled the area.

The 36 year old suspect was arrested by a special team that was deployed in the area after the victim’s parents lodged a complaint with the Mundalama police.

    Boycot all chinese restaurants.

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 02:48 PM

    Individuals pay the price for the decisions made by the politicians and the population at large.

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 03:07 PM

    I guess our patriotic friends will have to go crawling back to the westerners once the chinese have milked us dry!

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 03:27 PM

    As per iformation given in this news item, what was this girl doing inside the project area and why should she accept the invitation to get into the lorry, where she was supposed to have been raped. It appears to be a cooked up story, and in the event he raped her, he should be PUNISHED, as per the law of the country.

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 05:05 PM

    China is running the show so such acts of indecency would be overlooked.

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 06:08 PM

    We got rid off the Tamil terrorists. Now we have the Chinese in our door step. We cannot upset the Chinese as they are our financiers.

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 08:39 PM

    It is terrible, what has happened to this girl! However, an arrest does not necessarily mean that the one who is arrested, is guilty - a court of law will decide this. We cannot just assume that this guy is guilty. We are not the judge or the jury, are we?

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 09:29 PM

    Already forgotten that China gave Sri Lanka both arms and political support, to defeat the LTTE? As for the Chinese 'rapist,' try him in court, and then jail him! As for the 'Chinese workers' in Sri Lanka - how many Sri Lankan legal/illegal immigrants are working in other countries?

    Friday, 30 April 2010 12:14 AM

    If they had employed Sri Lankans for this project, there would have been strikes every day - demanding for this and that - and the project would have gone-on for years!

    Friday, 30 April 2010 01:49 AM

    Apply the Chinese Law. Shoot him. Get Mervyn. He will look after the culprit.

    Friday, 30 April 2010 04:03 AM

    dear all!
    i am a chinese working in sri lanka, according to my information and view, what someone has told above is not the truth, i love sri lanka and its people, i respect everyone, and i also think the rape from that bad chineseman is not right and it is abosolutely criminal, but he can not stand for china and chinese, do not elevate him to that level, he shall be punished by the law of sri lanka.

    Friday, 30 April 2010 04:06 AM

    and regarding the loan, yes, it is from the government of china, but as i know the rate is not that high, and personally i think some of the loan will be cancelled years later, china often does this, and some chinese complain about this, coz they think these cost them their tax money, but this decision made by the leaders considering the globle strategy of the country relations, do not be so cynical when u have no clear ideas about the real situation just by something guessing.

    Friday, 30 April 2010 04:15 AM

    let me tel you that, this low qualified guy can not stand for china, do not throw dirty remarks at china and chinese people by criticizing this criminal.

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 02:39 PM

    Dear Mr.R. Ratnayake,
    We Sri Lankan are known to be idlers just good at criticising others and gossipping. So all the foreign countries that give aid bring their own workers. From the President to the Lowest Level Worker we are natural idlers. Look at us and at our country. JP/USA

    Friday, 30 April 2010 04:57 AM

    hey local boy, i think you don't have sister ? if you have one, then your opinion will not be the same? shame on you!!

    Friday, 30 April 2010 05:06 AM

    If this chinese man did this crime in China he would have been executed by a firing squad.Lucky for this guy as he did it in Sri Lanka!!!

    Friday, 30 April 2010 06:00 AM

    this guy will not be shot in china if he commited the same crime. you are not telling the truth, i am chinese , i know the truth, according to the chinese law, this should be sentenced to death, he will be in prison for 10 years maybe, i am not so clear about the law. but what A DEMOCRACT said is wrong, it is not the truth.

    Friday, 30 April 2010 06:05 AM

    according to chinese law this gut will not be shotted, do not tell lies when you do not know the truth, otherwise others might be misled, that is not resposible thing to say.

    Friday, 30 April 2010 06:09 AM

    guys, listen to me, there are good people and bad people everywhere, and even this guy, this electrician, he is criminal, and he made serious wrong chioce, but even this guy should be reborn by offer an apology and pay 10 years price in prison, no.1 this is abosolutely criminal, and no.2, do not attack china and chinese by this matter, and no.3, to be realistic, every country has its own interest, and every country has bad people, do not judge the whole by one bad or one good

    Friday, 30 April 2010 06:20 AM

    according to my information, i am not professional at law, if a man rapes an adult lady in china, he will be sentenced 4-7years, if a man raped a young girl less than 18 years old, surely he will be punished more seriously. may be 10 years, it depends, depends on the judgement of the court. i am not sure.

    Friday, 30 April 2010 06:43 AM

    dont waste your time, This will be swept under the carpet soon.

    Friday, 30 April 2010 08:51 AM

    Sanjeeva this is the gospel truth, and our Govt pretends that they are good friend. Who is fooling whom?

    Friday, 30 April 2010 09:05 AM

    Soon there would a mixed China Town population.

    Friday, 30 April 2010 08:04 PM

    He learnt from our boys in the forces ... Chinese learn pretty fast.

    Friday, 30 April 2010 11:52 PM

    The Chinese, cannot be trusted!

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 11:33 AM

    hey local boy, are you telling us to be greatful for this chinese fellow for raping an underaged girl?

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 09:51 AM

    CHINA is a great nation, do not measure its value by looking at one bad chinese person. There are plenty of sri lankans doing this kind of dirty work. We should be greatful to CHINA

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 09:58 AM

    even an electrian from China.

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 10:07 AM

    With all the many chinese projects in Sri Lanka,1000's of chinese workers are brought down. Soon we can expect a small lankanese population.

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 10:11 AM

    Why SL is employing Chinese people for posts like electrians, it means our money is going to some other country. Is this the Economic Development in the country.

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 10:11 AM

    Totally right sir!

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 10:19 AM

    "Do not employ handsome servants" -Chinese proverb-

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 10:29 AM

    Sri Lankans are available for the post that you look for, But they sell our county to other nationals

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 10:38 AM

    Good Question? in our nation lots of Electricians are available.... if there is nothing please close all Vocational Training Centers.

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 10:54 AM

    Its not your money. They lend you money and even send engineers , labours to get the money back to China. At the end of the day you owe millions to China with peanuts left in the country.........God bless Sri Lanka!

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 10:58 AM

    Oh, Stop, Local Boy! Then, who commented that because one passenger made sexual advances toward a air hostess the entire Sri Lankan nation was disgraced.

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 11:00 AM

    Indians are better!

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 11:19 AM

    Local boy, for exactly what should you be grateful for? For giving us loans ABOVE the LIBOR rates, taking this money back by employing their own people!!??

    None are as blind as those who refuse to see.

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 09:38 AM

    ah these chinese fellows, i don't know what to do with these chinese

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 11:40 AM

    Guys, There is no free lunch available in international business . Evey one expect some advantage from their investment . China, India and Western countries also very same. Difference of China is, they respect one sri lanka and they support it but west want to divide this.

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 11:50 AM


    Thursday, 29 April 2010 12:15 PM

    Unlike the western countries the Chinese are not going to give anything free. This is also part of of the deal whether you like it or not

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 12:19 PM

    it’s an gift from sri lanka for helping for the war and developments …

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 01:28 PM

    U need visit factories in FTZ to see the difference between working in a factory run by China, India and the western nations. China respects one SL policy because of Tibet which they have hijacked and kicked out the great buddhist philospher the Dalai Lama. They also support SL and similar dictatorial countries bcos of high profitability in scrounging such nations who have less respect in the world.

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 01:29 PM

    Should be hammered and shipped back to china like the millions of defective cheap good they make.

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 01:45 PM

    Local Boy, how many jobs in Chinese "sponsored " projects have Sri Lanka lost because of the use of Chinese labour?
    Many of the chinese projects also make use of chinese convicts (not "heavy" crimes though). This kind of labour has not been used by western countries in their building projects in Sri Lanka.
    And think what a different response it would have been if a westerner had raped a Sri Lankan woman, even worse a minor/child like in this case! Would you defend that also, Local Boy?

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 02:11 PM

    That is the clever deal China made and our Govt. sell it as a diplomatic success story. China invest money collect the debts including higher interest rates and bring its own employers from Chinese jails and the SL taxpayers pay all the cost. The GoSL is trying to sell it as a friend to friend offer.

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 02:12 PM

    This is what our so called BEST FRIENDS China does! They give us billions of rupees/ dollars, whatever you want to call it at much higher rates than the VERY EVIL World Bank, the United States, IMF! However, the Chinese are nice, because their loans come with no other fancy conditions on the govt like "make sure you tackle your corruption, so your politicians waste less money of the people", "make sure you improve your human rights so that your people will have a stronger say in govt".

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 02:14 PM

    All the Chinese want is to make sure you pay their money back and a few conditions like this:

    1. You can only hire chinese workers, or the majority of them have to be chinese
    2. You have to use Chinese technology
    3. You have to use Chinese products as much as possible - hopefull all of it has to be Chinese

    So basically, China gives us money at a higher rate than globally available to use that money to pay for their citizens's salary, to buy their goods and services, to buy their technology. So basically, they give us money which we then immediately give back to the Chinese economy and then when the loan due date is up, we give it back again but with interest and more! The totaly interest in this case is in excess of 100% as we are giving the money back to the Chinese twice over! ,

    Thursday, 29 April 2010 02:14 PM

    When the WB or the bad Americans and Europeans give us money it's very different. They usually require we hire local workers and try our best to use locally available technology so we can develop internally. Stupid Sri Lankans are left in the dark about this because China is our BEST FRIEND! But with friends like this..seriously..who needs enemies!?
