Six women and two men who were allegedly involved in a mobile prostitution ring at the Galle Face Green were released on bail after being produced before the Colombo Fort Magistrate Ms. Lanka Jayaratne.

The suspects arrested by the Fort police were released on a cash bail of Rs. 5,000 and surety bail of Rs.50,000 each. The police told Court that one of the women had charged Rs.5,000 from the decoy who carried out the raid and subsequently arrested the other suspects.

Two women who operated the ring were among those arrested and two vehicles alleged to have been used for the operations were also taken into police custody. Police told Court that two vehicle drivers who were involved in allegedly aiding and abetting the offence were also arrested and produced in Court. Meanwhile, the police filed a separate charge sheet against the main suspect woman for possessing pornographic video clips on her mobile phone.

The suspect who pleaded guilty to the charge was ordered to pay a fine of Rs.2,500, by the Magistrate who further ordered the police to confiscate her mobile phone. Defence Counsel P. C. de Silva appeared for the suspects while SI Chathuranga and Sergeant Sunil of the Fort police prosecuted. (Lakmal Sooriyagoda)

    When everything goes "mobile" and high-tech, looks like those who ply the world's oldest profession also decided to modernise and fall in line.

    No thrill in catching criminals.
    What a country ,you can't have even a piece of tail with out the police get in to it. Big shots can have it any time any where.

    Aiyo! Aparade.... This shouldn't have been done.Police guys, don't you have anyother criminals to catch?

    Jodie Windenburg Monday, 05 September 2011 05:11 AM

    Seriously.... it is necessary to have this operation if we need tourism. Look at Malaysia, Indonesia and Dubai. Need to legalize it in a way that Sri Lankans would not engage in it, but the tourists (at least)

    Dcop Monday, 05 September 2011 05:31 AM

    so lot of people will be have to be remanded if their phones are checked !!!!!

    There is no way that you can stop this. That is why it is called the oldest profession. Also this is basic economics. If there is a demand there will also be a supply. The only difference is the price. Just like liquor and tobacco.
