Former monk Ruwanwelle Sobitha alias S. Shantha has been sentenced to 20 years imprisonment, after he was found guilty of having raped a 28 year old woman in Kegalle.
The Ruwanwella Magistrate sentenced two of his accomplices, who were also found guilty of the charges, to 20 years imprisonment.
The convicts were each fined Rs.20,000 and ordered to pay Rs.200,000 as compensation to the victim. Court directed that in the event they failed to pay the fine, their jail term would be extended by another 18 months while the jail term would be extended by a further two years in case they failed to pay the compensation.
