The Attorney General has indicted the Ven. Uduwe Dhammaloka Thera in the Colombo High Court on charges of having retained an elephant calf aged two and half years old at the Alan Mathiniyaramaya without a valid license.

On an earlier occasion the CID detectives informed the Magistrate that they were expecting the Attorney General’s advice on this offence because it came under the public property and the Fauna and Flora Acts.

Wildlife Conservation officers took the elephant calf into their custody after discovering it at the temple in January last year.

The monk was arrested and subsequently released on bail. (Shehan Chamika Silva)

    In most cases, they kill the mother elephant to get the calf.

    Sure he has to be prosecuted - but what about all the others who had baby elephants illegally - law must be applied equally.

    Is there nothing better to do. As if Sri Lanka does everything as per the law. A minister digs up the walking track in Wattala, admits to it and then nothing happens. Hence the easiest and cheapest thing would have been to take the elephant and warn the priest.

    Watch out, a deal will be done and he will go scot free, Our judiciary, police and law system is corrupt and susceptible to external pressure.
