Authorities of the SriLankan Airlines management have been summoned to appear in the court of New Delhi India on the 13th of July 2016 for the alleged internal sexual harassment of one of its Indian national female employees.

    ” she was informed that an internal investigation would take place. Subsequently there was neither an investigation nor a verdict into the matter.”

    What is new. My3 promised all sorts of investigations into billions of dollars of public money stolen by the MR Mafia. Nothing has happened so far. Only a bit of hogwash here and there. Typical Sri Lankan hanky panky. Thankfully Sri Lankan hanky panky does not seem to work in India

      “” Thankfully Sri Lankan hanky panky does not seem to work in Indi “

      It will all be a political turn around and its just the magistrates court.
      The complainant is lucky IITian Arvind Kejriwal is Chief Minister- there will be justice if she is true.

      Lets hope it won’t be like Hillary and Obama interfering in the trinco 5 case.(according to district judge never in the history of USA did it happen before when she was asked to throw the case in the bin.)

      BBS,
      This incident which took place in 2011, may have gone underground with Jarapaksa Bills influence. Wait till the Courts do the inquiry.

        The latest from New Delhi is that this case is to recoil on Indian public its governance and not as being promoted.

        Its a foxy show that never went to an industrial tribunal in the first instance.

        You never beat the Delhiites in their own field and if that was the case pakistan would have run over India ages ago.

    In Sri Lanka a culture of impunity for VIPs exists. Look at this high prifile case, on 24th December 2011 Russian woman 24 year old Victoria Tkacheva was attached and according to the police report “She had been raped or sexually assaulted and had suffered vaginal injuries”. They also killed her companion 32 year old Khuram Shaikh who also went to Sri Lanka on a holiday. But the then government of Mahinda Rajapaksa tried to protect the attacker and killer who was a friend of the then president. Chief Government Whip, Minister Dinesh Gunawardena, gave a statement in parliament “Victoria Tkacheva was neither raped nor sexually abused”.

    In 2013 the MP of Shaikh, Simon Danczuk, said: “Justice continues to be denied and the key suspect is a close ally of the Sri Lankan President. He persuaded the PM David Cameron to intervene and at last justice was done to the victims.

    In Sri Lanka political leaders guarantee impunity to the criminals, the new government says a lot but delivers statements and promises without tangible results.

      Where was Wimal Weerawanse?
      How is it that he did not perform a fast unto death protest in front of the British High Commission on the grounds that Lanka’s Sovereignity had been breached because an ally of the President was sentenced on a charge of rape and murder?

        “:”Justice continues to be denied and the key suspect is a close ally of the Sri Lankan President. .”

        It was not Cameron alone but Prince Charles. There are at least 20 Russian Oligarchs at Sloane Square alone who have leased out their homes from the Duke of Westminster.
        Money talks when it goes to Prince Charity.
        There is nothing called a free lunch in the 1st world- only fools fall for it.

        “How is it that he did not perform a fast unto death protest in front of the British High Commission on the grounds that Lanka’s Sovereignity”

        Not one of the high and mighty anti government of MR1 including CT had the ba**s to assemble in protest which is part of democracy. It shows posters have no ba**s and are a shame unto themselves.
        But we have to give the devil its due where Jaffna mothers held the protest against all odds and one woman and child succumbed to the wrath of MR1.

      ” In Sri Lanka a culture of impunity for VIPs exists.”

      The problem is that Politicians are extolled as ‘VIP’s by the Media.

      The Real ‘Very Important Persons’ are not given any Prominence.

        Hamlet, I should have hyphens , “VIP’s”, to go along with your correction.

        WW has got too many things on his plate to worry about. He is spared by this government to buy time. If he resorts to his usual tricks and tactics he may end up counting bars.

    In 2011? Wow, those wonderful years where even the Chairman used to have good times!!! If an inquiry was held, so many would have complained locally and the best way out was to ignore. Well, they flew!

      jim softy the dimwit,

      “”Oh, Indians Rape Indians. Sri lanka’s name goes.””

      that is a one off `accusation` Sri lankan `sexually harassed`(not rape) indian woman. `an Indian national female employee of the national carrier alleged that her SriLankan Airlines Regional Manager had sexually harassed her.`
      – outcome unknown.

      Humanised thinking is just reasonable thinking.

      Nigeria has 173 million. Boko Haram kidnaps girls for
      sex slavery a couple of 1000’s.

      Sinhala Buddhist Lanka 21 million. Sinhala Buddhist +Muslim
      export young women to Medieval Middle East.

      3 million or 90% of expatriate Sri Lankans reside in the Middle East.

      How sexy is it for Sinhala Buddhist Lanka men to live

    This case could have been settled. This Lady in question has a very good reputation and she worked for over a decade. I personally know this case and since this man could not tackle her for his satisfaction. She underwent immense difficulties. Shall not comment much as it will interrupt the case , but the bottom line is that the stupid donkey col sunil peris, the most idiotic director and a monster, the driving force for distruction of the Airline interdicted this respectable lady from employment. col peris is in the process of destroying this National carrier of this country using his military technics, which doesn’t work. He further did many damages, transfers of 9 out of 30 further eroding the productivity of the Airline.
    The latest is he had transferred Mr A.Fdo who has over 3 decades experience, The most Popular personality and loved by all . There is going to be a another case in our Courts unless they will withdraw this. A huge campaign is on the way and organized on a grand scale to signal all Authorities concerned. Be Ready.

    col peris is involved in making enough damages. He orders unlimited cakes for his girl friends at the HR and more .
    He is a friend of Chairman and Chairman is PMs friend . So Yahapalanaya will sail like this for a few more months.
    All these will end soon and every dog will have its day…….awaiting soon to say goodbye for this notorious monster .

      You have good knowledge in the happenings at Air Paradise.

      The Directors should not interfere with the running of the Airline. Professionals within it, must run it. The Directors must play a supportive role.

      On Col. Sunil Peiris,as the Head of the 1st Commando Regiment, his team was so close to capturing VP in the Vedamarachi Ops, until India intervened. He quit in utter frustration.

      Let the Airline be run by the professionals. Politicians and their appointees must stand down.

        vishvajith,

        So you are a former employee of air ceylon.
        I notice everyone talking of air force pilots etc as best- it’s just utter rubbish because even baggage boys are pilots (Tony AirAsia Berhad)

        nothing to beat this former CEO of The Guardian UK. The staff like her altruistic ways.
        Dame Carolyn Julia McCall DBE is a British businessperson, and the Chief Executive of easyJet. Wikipedia

        How high can Carolyn McCall take easyJet before she bails out?
        Annual pre-tax profits have surged from £154m in 2010 to a record £686m last year. Investors have cheered her work by sending easyJet shares flying from about 430p to £16.01, catapulting the airline into the FTSE 100. Sir Stelios the founder is bullying her because of her salary 7 million- but that is english they deliver the impossible./ she is a diplomat and gets around with hard work.

    There seems to be something horrible at times we hear about people, specially when it comes to harassing women. It is not something peculiar to any part of the world but all over the world it is recognized now that sexual harassment is dimly viewed and is considered a semi serious offence against women, rape & murder being considered most serious.

    Just the other day we heard about something nasty in the University of Jaffna where the Lady Vice-Chancellor appeared to be defending the conduct of the alleged male offender. The list is endless. I am quite sure that the real offender in this instance being an Indian himself, similar offences do take place in India based Airlines by the bushell. But we are a country who boast that we produced the world’s first woman Prime Minister and her own daughter the President subsequently. In such circumstances we in Sri Lanka should clearly have somewhat better standards in this respect than our neighbours and the publicity is a blot to the Airline which might lose further business and incur further losses in addition to the Billions already accumulated.

      Both watti Ammas were a disgrace. 1 the weeping widow who promised rice from the moon and sent the poor into the bins looking for food. Rice was not served on certain days and if caught jail sentence.2. Like the mother and better still she sacrificed Vijaya then Lakshman to achieve her ends.
