Alleged threatening incident: Protestor urges victim to give a statement

2 December 2019 11:14 am - 6     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Major (Rtd.) Attorney-at-Law Ajith Prasanna, who is also the convener of Mawbima Wenuwen Ranawiruwo organisation, started a sit-in campaign in front of the Swiss Embassy in Colombo a short while ago urging the victim of the alleged abduction incident to give a statement to police.

Mr Prasanna is engaged in the protest holding a banner which states ‘the Ambassador of Switzerland, don’t tarnish the good name of my motherland. Let the lady give a statement to police,’  

An incident was reported recently regarding a local employee attached to the Swiss Embassy in Sri Lanka who was allegedly detained against her will on the street in Sri Lanka.

The Swiss Embassy said on Friday that a local employee of the embassy had been detained against her will on the street and threatened at length by unidentified men in order to force her to disclose embassy-related information.

Meanwhile, the Foreign Ministry said the investigations into the alleged incident of threatening carried out by the police and the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) are underway.

The Ministry noted that the sequence of events and timeline of the alleged Swiss Embassy employee incident did not in any way correspond with the actual movements of the alleged victim on that date. (Sheain Fernandopulle)
