The Chinese who is alleged to have stolen a Rs.1.8 million-worth diamond from a stall at the Gem and Jewellery Exhibition at the BMICH today pleaded guilty of the charges and was released on bail by a Colombo Court.

When the case was taken up by Colombo Chief Magistrate Rashmi Singappuili, the Counsel appearing for the Chinese suspect Heighnan Chanly Donjil pleaded guilty to the charges of theft levelled against him by Cinnamon Gardens police.

The defence counsel said his client was willing to pay a considerable amount of money though not the entire amount.( Lakmal Sooriyagoda)

    make him pay and also serve time in jail. IF a SL did this in another country, he is looking at jail time..

    It has to cut both ways.

    Thank god this man was Chinese if this was a SF?

    We have to follow what other countries do? We can't decide for ourselves what is justice? I am not saying I know what his sentence should be, but putting him in jail just because we want revenge for how we are treated in other countries is wrong. Make sure his sentence is enough so that he learns the lesson not to do again, but no need for extra revenge or settling scores with others through him.

    Why part payment make him to pay all

    Gam Pappa Thursday, 11 October 2012 03:12 AM

    Do not release him.
    Make him pay full and put him in jail.

    SL justice should not be sold to china

    In other words, he robbed the diamond and now wants to settle the case by paying a percentage to the State after keeping his "cut". Very funny, indeed.

    So what is it; was it a fake or a 1.8 million-worth diamond? Which story are we to believe?

    Gangnam Style Wednesday, 10 October 2012 12:50 PM

    I remember they said it was not original. But now this story..... What's going on???
