UNP Parliamentarian Sajith Premadasa on Saturday urged the government to conduct an impartial investigation into the alleged detention and questioning of a local employee of the Swiss Embassy.

Issuing a statement, he said that the incident has left a black mark on the country’s history of diplomacy.

Mr Premadasa also urged the government to conduct investigations on the incidents and not to subject public servants to political victimisation.

“We urge the government to conduct investigations on these incidents and to create the atmosphere which it pledged to build during elections,” Mr Premadasa said in his statement.

He said that it is unfair to criticise a new government as it must be given a considerable period of time to fulfill the mandate, but said that considering the disturbing incidents after the new government took office, he decided break his silence. 

He also charged that several prominent police officers and the media are also being intimidated.
