Alleged Chinese rape victim appeals to President

Saturday, 11 January 2020

A Chinese woman who claims she was raped by a politician and his close associates in Galle last year, has appealed to President Gotabaya Rajapaksa to intervene and ensure she gets justice.

In the letter sent to the President, a copy of which was sent to Colombo Gazette, the alleged rape victim says she had filed a Police complaint over the incident but the suspect was not charged.

“I hope you will keep your election manifesto to uphold law and order. I’ve lodged the gang rape complaint against the 2 suspects at the Galle police station (Galle case number
10674) on 3rd May 2019,” the Chinese woman claimed.

The name of the Chinese woman and the alleged accused are being withheld as the allegation is yet to be proven in court.

The Chinese woman said that a “B Report” was filed in court and the Magistrate had issued orders to arrest and produce suspects in court last June.
