Convert hospitals into remand prisons!
(Opinion Island 4.3.02) Your headlines in todays paper (February 21) must have caused much surprise to almost all readers. This is because a suspect in connection with a murder and many other allegations was reported to have been airlifted by a Government helicopter to be produced before magistrate, who ordered that he be remanded. But he was flown back to Colombo and admitted to Hospital.
The questions that arise in this connection are: Who pays for the Helicopter ride up and down and who permitted it? If the suspect is ailing what were doctors findings and what was the treatment prescribed? Or should we convert all Hospitals into remand prisons for all suspects in the country irrespective of his position and power?

Policeman turns snatch thief
By Leary Beekmeyer Daily Mirror 4.3.02
A snatch thief who was found guilty of stealing a chain from a young girl at Kollupitiya was sentenced to one year's rigorous imprisonment by Colombo Fort Magistrate Priyantha Fernando. Two lovers who enjoyed the evening by the sea at Kollupitiya had encountered the snatch thief who grabbed the chain from the girl. The thief had sped off with the chain only to be pursued by a number of bystanders hearing the cries of the teenager. They handed over the suspect to the police who produced him in court. The thief pleaded guilty and he had a previous conviction against him. Attorney Suraweera Arachchi pleaded for a suspended sentence. It was revealed that the thief had been a former reserve policeman who had later worked in a security establishment. He was charged with theft and retention of stolen property. Spotter: Ranil Bibile

Love's labour lost for Sri Lankan cross-dresser
Reuters COLOMBO, March 1 A young Sri Lankan woman has filed for divorce three months into her marriage after discovering her husband was really a woman, a newspaper reported on Friday.
The young bride had been whisked away on her wedding night by her parents who were suspicious about the groom's feminine gait and high-pitched voice, the Daily Mirror reported. The matter ended up in a court in the capital Colombo when the transvestite groom ''had gone to the girl's residence to take his wife back,'' the paper said.
The paper did not say how the bride was lured into the marriage but said the transvestite had carried out similar scams in the past. Spotter: Ranil Bibile (Any news of the dowry? - Ed)
