The Ship Thief Riddle

A Japanese ship is on route back to the shore from the Atlantic Ocean. Seeking the silent waves, the captain decides to take a shower. He keeps his Rolex and diamond studded gold bracelet on the shelf and goes for a shower. When he returns back, he finds both the watch and bracelet missing. He immediately calls the four crew members and asks them what they were doing during that duration. Following are the answers:

1. French Guy, the Cook: I was in the kitchen, making bacon sandwiches for everybody.

2. Russian Guy, the engineer: I was in the generator room, checking the generator.

3. Pakistani Guy, the housekeeper: I saw that the flag hoisted on the ship was upside down, so I went to correct it.

4. Srilankan Guy, the second housekeeper: I was tired and taking a quick nap.

The captain immediately knew who the thief was. Can you tell?
Hint:
The thief is the Pakistani guy. It is because the flag of Japan looks same when upside down and no one can tell if it is upside down. So, he was telling a lie.
