Madam ‘Jeena’ to be indicted

31 December 2010 01:30 pm - 84     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The Attorney General is expected to indict the wealthy woman known as Madam ‘Jeena’  who ran a star-class brothel in the heart of Colombo, on charges of prostitution and human trafficking.

The key suspect Rosemary Felicia Perera also known as ‘Madam Jeena’ who was evading arrest in another case was arrested by a special police team at a brothel in a shopping complex in  Kollupitiya.

The suspect had kept away from inquiries at the Fort Magistrate’s Court and the Colombo High Court over similar charges.

A police team lead by Corruption Prevention Unit OIC SI Janaka de Silva had arrested the main suspect, her aides and 15 women used as sex workers comprising of locals and foreigners. The foreign women were from Uzbekistan and China.

Felicia Perera is to be charged with human trafficking and procuring, while the others will be charged for aiding and abetting to commit the offence.

Meanwhile Colombo High Court Judge Deepali Wijesundara released two Uzbekistan women. Senior State Counsel Dileepa Peiries appeared for the prosecution.  (Susitha R. Fernando)

    Hmmm. Better she be the Minister of Women's Affairs so that she can teach us how to make big bucks without slogging in offices for cheap labour.

    sam Saturday, 01 January 2011 02:44 PM

    As far as I know this woman is running this business for last 25 years,, she can give some interesting story about our politicians,

    Kin Ba Nut Saturday, 01 January 2011 02:00 PM

    jeena did a large scale business , but there are self employments and SME (small and medium enterprises) for same services. to protect the customer privacy its illegal to release customer information .other than court order..
    if she released customer information there might be law suits against her as she breach the privacy law of sri lanka..
    customers names well protected..

    Hewa Saturday, 01 January 2011 11:53 AM

    It will be same with all the illicit businesses. You suggest police do not raid them?

    Raymond Punchisingho Saturday, 01 January 2011 10:48 AM

    In ancient times, even in the time of King Brahmadatta, the oriental culture treated the Nagara Sobhinis with honour and respect.

    Shame on you, the followers of Western Victorian values, for not appreciating the services rendered to the Sri Lankan community at large, by yhese Nagara Sobhinis. It is unfortunate that women who provide such immense service to society, are treated like criminals, in the hands schemeing, unethical politicians, fundamentalist clergy and uneducated nationalists..

    Anton Saturday, 01 January 2011 07:31 AM

    Madam Jeena, you should give a thorough hand shake to the one who ordered the raid and excuse yourself for not treating him properly earlier and the solution will be under the carpet.

    well well, what about the poor underaged girls who have been pulled into this so-called profession? will you allow your daughter to do it? Should we allow anything just for its being an ancient practice? On the same note, I dare to ask you what's wrong with bestiality, incest then? civilization is the word that you should read about more.

    This is a big loss to the country.....Pls release madam jeena

    yahoo Sunday, 02 January 2011 05:29 AM

    Only the Islamic rule would stop these types of acts [prevailing like in Saudi].
    Saudi is the best example, less number of rapes in any year and the worst in US.
    Simply think if anyone rapes any one of our relation, what would we do??
    This is one of the biggest threats to the world not only for SL.
    I am not insisting that Sudies are good people [no they are NOT], but still these law's keep them under control, since they know the punishment

    Basically human beings are created with the weakness to do mistakes, hence there should be policy procedures preventing him from doing major mistakes. That’s why there are police/army forces for each country.
    Further, these laws and regulations have lots week points because it is created by Human being who have already had a weakness of doing wrong things

    No private prostitution. Gvt will take over and run with marginal profit.

    play boy Sunday, 02 January 2011 12:16 AM

    This may be due to the profit shearing problem.

    Just hours before the names of the VIPs to be revealed she will receive a presidential pardon will be shot for "trying to shoot the police'. I will cut my ear if she does not start the SAME BUSINESS in the SAME LOCATION within the next six months (if she is alive). As you know this place had been raided a hundred times before!

    I agree with Thomas. So no more prostitution in Colombo, is it? Or are we content none in the Shopping Plaza. What about the suburbs - Gangodawila, Nugegoda, Ratmalana.

    Hats off to the Police. We should create a moral society. All illegal massage parlours and spas should also be raided.

    Ramzil Saturday, 01 January 2011 06:14 AM

    Good. Most Colombo residents knew this from the 1980s. Nothing was done. At last there is something happening.

    Did any one notice the charges? Looks like prostitution is not illegal in SL anymore. No one is charged for protitution, but for human trafficking. when did this happen?
