Former Miss Sri Lanka contest runner up Samudra Hikkaduwa who was accused of running a brothel in Moratuwa, has given a statement to the Walana Central Anti-Vice Squad today, police sources said.

The Panadura- Walana Central Anti-Vice Squad raided a hotel said to be owned by the film and tele drama actress in Moratuwa on August 23. Two alleged sex workers and the manager of the hotel, a retired police sergeant, were arrested.

The police, on information received, had obtained a search warrant from the Moratuwa magistrate and raided the place.

However, Mrs. Hikkaduwa later denied the allegations and said she owned the property in question, which was leased out to another.

    We should stop the hypocrisy and allow brothels in Sri Lanka. Who is the man.

    Some readers love to bring in the Buddha into evry issue. Why not Jesus or the Prophert for a change ?

    robert aiyya Friday, 31 August 2012 01:23 PM

    Can somebody please give me Samudra Madame's mobile number?

    richardson Saturday, 01 September 2012 07:56 AM

    A country full of hypocrites.

    Whom did they referred to as Nagarasobanis about 2500 years ago.
    This was a trade in existence even ithat time !!!

    As the law stands today, wonder to what extent the actual owner is responsible for any immoral or illegal activities carried out in the premises, by a person who takes it on rent or lease. Can the owner claim total innocence and say it is not hisd/her business?

    Nodrog Thursday, 30 August 2012 12:40 PM

    The extent of responsibility depends on who you are connected to. Higher the connection lesser the responsibility.

    SATAKAYOOOOOO Friday, 31 August 2012 02:59 PM

    This is the ONLY business people can make money to make a decent living in Sri Lanka . Be famous and become a POLICIAN to rob your country OR be an BEAUTY QUEEN to start a brothel ....

    another owner Saturday, 01 September 2012 10:17 AM

    This is common in Sri Lanka. Once my house in Moratuwa area were given to a nice lady, who came from a beetle car. Nothing was suspicious, but after some months neighbor start calling me regarding some activity.
    She used to keep teenagers and trasport them to near by hotel at the night. But Moratumulla police top guys comes directly to the house even with uniforms.
    When |I asked them to vacate, they just left... still the business going on in some other place in moratuwa.

    Isn't it time prostitution is legalized in this country? It has gone on from time immemorial and it would go on as long as there are humans on this earth. So why not take the practical step and make it legal? That way everyone is safe. What is happening now is hypocrisy. When I was a student abroad, whenever a politician from S/L visited, the first request he had was to visit a brothel. I am not kidding.

    shahiwal Thursday, 30 August 2012 01:29 PM

    I am sure that this lady Samudra is behind the scene. They can nicely framed the leasing document and carry out the prostitution bussiness behind the closed doors. One day truth will come out....similar to Kamal Addaraarchchi's case last week

    Hussain Friday, 31 August 2012 05:58 PM

    Sounds to me as though she was just providing a service. Not sure why everyone gets so worked up about this stuff, it's been going on for thousands of years and is simply another facet of mutually exploitative human behavior.
    Leave the woman alone she's an entrepreneur who's providing a much needed service for all the hypocrites in what is effectively a warped and twisted society in this land of ours.

    Hussain Friday, 31 August 2012 05:59 PM

    Whats wrong with a Brothel? Much better than girls at risk walking the street.
    Absolute waste of taxpayer money. Absolute waste. How is this woman a danger to anyone but the IRS who just wants their cut. Ridiculous.
    It's idiotic that prostitution is illegal at all. Why on earth shouldn't beautiful people and wealthy people give each other what they want?
    It's consenting adults having sex with consenting adults. And it's illegal simply because money is involved? What a stupid law that is.

    Hussain Friday, 31 August 2012 06:02 PM

    This is laughable. Exactly what has she done wrong? Who is the victim? If people want to pay money for sex, what is wrong with that. It's a damn site cheaper than marriage then divorce. This is going to be a laughing stock in a hundred years time when hopefully, attitudes will not include moralizing, religious bigotry. I know who I would rather see in jail, the politicians who rob us all blind, lined their pockets and sat back while the whole economy collapses. Let's not forget, its the money people, including the politicians who control governments and the nation and who ultimately preside over this.

    Hafsal Friday, 31 August 2012 06:36 AM

    It is wrong to blame them always. We must take measures against the people who use their service. I would say legalize the prostitution but paying for sex is illegal and criminal offence. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    richardson Friday, 31 August 2012 06:33 AM

    Get a life man

    richardson Friday, 31 August 2012 06:46 AM

    Who cares when two consenting adults have sex in private.
    Its only the Police. What a shame. !!!

    Jagath Leanage Friday, 31 August 2012 06:57 AM

    Can we have the adress please. Not to go but tell somebody if he does want to go ;)

    richardson Friday, 31 August 2012 06:49 AM

    Those days they did not have to bribe the Police. or give freebees to the police.

    Hussain Friday, 31 August 2012 10:26 PM

    Why cannot prostitution be legalized in Sri Lanka? Its legal in many countries.In Asia, The main characteristic of the region is the very big discrepancy between the laws which exist on the books and what occurs in practice. For example, in Thailand prostitution is illegal, but in practice it is tolerated and partly regulated, and the country is a destination for sex tourism. Such situations are common in many Asian countries. In these countries there is a very strong double standard: it is considered acceptable for men to use the services of the prostitutes. But prostitutes themselves are stigmatized .

    Hussain Friday, 31 August 2012 10:30 PM

    Bangladesh even have a sex workers Trade Union though its a Muslim majority country. People are sensible.

    Milinda Saturday, 01 September 2012 01:26 AM

    In this country now people cant enjoy sex, single peole, married and frustrated people cant pay for sex,..
    unless ofcourse you are in the GOSL or pay the Govt. goons.

    I mean prostitutes, temples and goats have become the problem...., as if !!

    Normal Citizen Friday, 31 August 2012 08:03 AM

    So how would you settle the bill after the service? Maybe you can send a rice sack?!

    potta silva Friday, 31 August 2012 07:43 AM

    Why. Are you afraid to go? Take someone with you. I mean, a real man.

    rednaxela Sunday, 02 September 2012 03:27 PM

    In Sri Lanka it is always a case of barking up the wrong tree! We shout about trivial things when there is daylight robbery all around. It is the wonder of Asia!

    Rathurala Thursday, 30 August 2012 04:58 PM

    These Miss Sri Lanka contestants do look like they are connected with brothels.

    Prasanna Friday, 31 August 2012 08:41 AM

    There are many places in and around moratuwa/Panadura it going out of hand, lets concerned authorities act fast. These are patronised by affuluent people in society who use the power to make this profession survive.

    dass Thursday, 30 August 2012 05:13 PM

    no need to deny any involvement. In Buddha time this kin of women are called "Nagara Shobanees". a respectable job.

    Sameera E Thursday, 30 August 2012 05:39 PM

    Country is so bankrupt; people (artists) get to oldest profession and illegal acts as a result.
    Only well-connected people (to bureaucrats) enjoy life here, correct me if I am wrong.

    Aranze Thursday, 30 August 2012 08:16 PM

    Yes, as in the event of Angella.

    fayaZ Friday, 31 August 2012 10:41 AM
