A Primary school Principal in the Kottawa area, who had demanded sexual favors from a woman in order to admit her child to his school, came clean and admitted his guilt before Colombo High Court judge Irangani Perera. The principal later received an 8 year jail term and a fine of 20,000 rupees.
The Principal of the school is alleged to have suggested that he and the mother spend time alone in a hotel room, in exchange for her child being admitted to the school.
The woman in response had stated that she would meet him at the hotel, but instead went to lodge a complaint with the Commission to investigate allegations of bribery or corruption.
Bribery Commission officials, along with the woman, had then made their way to the hotel room where the principal, as expected, was waiting for her.
Judge Irangani Perera stated that the suspect deserved a bigger punishment than what was granted to him as the job of a principal is a respected profession adding that such acts cannot be tolerated nor accepted. However, taking the suspects wife and children into consideration, judge Irangani said that she ordered a lesser punishment than what he deserves.
