    Please conduct a thorough, impartial and transparent investigation on this and impose maximum punishment for this lady if they found she tried to defame the country by fabricating the story

    Is there a possibility having some info arising from investigation cos people comment on assumptions out of stupidity not knowing the exact facts.

    Sunil de Silva Tuesday, 10 December 2019 12:26 PM

    Why didn't she coporate first?

    TONY Tuesday, 10 December 2019 12:37 PM

    IT IS THE DUTY OF THE EMBASSY TO SAFEGUARD HER IF SHE WAS GENUINE. THEY SHOULD MAKE HER SWISS NATIONAL AND EMBASSY STAFF IMMEDIATELY, SO THAT SHE CAN ENJOY IMMUNITY

    Sanje Dabare Tuesday, 10 December 2019 12:53 PM

    If she is proven guilty. It will be a huge black-mark for Swiss dip-core in SL for staging and amplifying wrong information to the world using diplomatic immunity. I think its heading there...

    This is total harassment of a person for three days to get a statement over an incident by the CID. It shows how incompetent is the CID officers.

    Massdeen Tuesday, 10 December 2019 01:53 PM

    Di you need three days to make a statement?? Each statement took many long hours, I’m sure there’s some conspiracy behind

    Era Wednesday, 11 December 2019 08:59 AM

    Let's be sane. Broadly two possibilities. 1) She was abducted by a certain gang 2) She has cooked up the story. Now without coming into conclusions let us wait for the investigation to be completed. Also, 1) I do not see any reason for her to be questioned for so long 2) She can file a fundermental rights petition.
