Guest houses to come under strict surveillance

The police have taken steps to monitor guest houses under a strict plan to curb child molestations and rape cases. A circular had been issued by IGP N.K. Illangakone to all senior police officers in charge of each province and district to take necessary action against such places if they are found facilitating crimes and accommodating criminals.

Recently the police raided a so called orphanage where they arrested an 85-year-old person for sexually abusing 13 under aged girls.

Police noted that the land was handed over to the caretaker of the orphanage by the suspect. However he had been visiting the children everyday.

The orphanage was subjected to be shut down by the Sabaragamuwa Provincial Council and since then the children were at an orphanage in Kegalle.

They had confessed that the suspect had been sexually abusing them for a considerable period. Authorities then informed the National Child Protection Authority (NCPA) which subsequently informed the police.

Police spokesman Ajith Rohana said that strict legal action would be taken against those who facilitate suspects to commit such crimes and also against places for accommodating them under the 286 sentence of 2006 Act 16 of the penal code.(Supun Dias)

    Need to look for other elements also, taxies etc. cos it is an organized thing. All has to help this as the younger generation is the future of this country.

    So where are those who voted for the JHU expecting a "Dharma-Rajya"? This is a "Raaksha-Rajya" where even orphanages are not safe!

    john Thursday, 26 July 2012 04:19 AM

    Also not allow couples to misbehave at parks, theaters etc

    colombo Thursday, 26 July 2012 04:37 AM

    Why not the JHU n bhikkus intervene or rise up against rape and child abuse??? isnt it a grave sin in the land of buddha? over to you JHU.

    Since SL does not have the death penalty, what they need to do like in the US, is publicly publish names/photo's of the CONVICTED sex abuse/ rape criminals in each province. Since in SL, REPUTATION is considered very important, this might...just might encourage people to stop doing these things. There is some psychology involved here, hopefully the relevant authorities has some idea on this!!!

    The JHU which made a big fuss about celebrating Valentines Day is now maintaining a deadly silence in the face of raping and murder of minor girls and women by their own associate political party members in the government. is it because they have now given up their campaign for ushering in a "Dharma Raajya".

    every day there is some sick rape story and its almost always child rape, a murder, suicide, or abuse of power in this country or complete disregard of the law or any values!

    Minister Thursday, 26 July 2012 06:44 AM

    Another instance of strict implementation of the law. (Neethiya akuratama kriyathmaka kireema) !!

    Dadoriya Wednesday, 25 July 2012 03:58 PM

    In this miracle island even orphans are not safe.

    Too little too late.

    No mercy should be given to him. This is the result of not imposing the Death Sentence by hanging. ( Miracle of Asia)

    John Thursday, 26 July 2012 10:14 AM

    At least they do so openly, due to lack of means for privacy - they can hardly commit serious crime such as rape publicly?!

    hubert Friday, 27 July 2012 06:59 AM

    I think all hotels,motels,inns & resorts should install cameras on each floor and entrance, this could reduce the crime

    Calistus Jayatilleke Thursday, 26 July 2012 02:34 AM

    Would this directive apply to the guest houses owned and operated by UPFA politicians as well who are the main culprits carrying out child molestations inside these guest houses.

    senavi Thursday, 26 July 2012 02:36 AM

    They already under surveillance by politicians and their senior officials

    nicky karunarathna Thursday, 26 July 2012 02:37 AM

    Guest houses should be have their liberty to operate their own, especially for couples are concern. What's point of going to guest house all alone for holiday or recreation? Better to be at home and guest houses to be close down!

    ramkuumar Thursday, 26 July 2012 02:36 AM

    How the public can identify the criminals and wanted person by police? What about parliament and other councils which hold many crimes and black money robbers of public fund, who will be responsible for giving accommodation to this type of criminals.

    Just Another Citizen Thursday, 26 July 2012 03:04 AM

    Why not have better crack down on the offenders? In other countries, it is made public who the offenders are & they are labelled sex offenders for life.
