    Sickening!

    71 years, as opposed to 17, would have been better! The 12 stroke caning should be to the anterior and not the posterior!

    Agreed!

    The punishment in this case is well deserved and may even be seen as insufficient, but, I would bet that there wouldn't be a single man who uses prostitutes, abandoning his practice, because of this case!

    I thought they hang them in Singapore. Throw a chewing gum and you get a bigger sentence

    Sri Lanka's shame!
