The Foreign Ministry is to begin talks soon with the Swiss Embassy in Colombo, seeking the extradition of Inspector Nishantha Silva, who is believed to have flown to Switzerland without prior notice, a top government source told Daily Mirror yesterday.

He is believed to have fled the country last month after the transfer of former CID Director Shani Abeysekara and is said to be taking refuge in Switzerland with his family.

The government source said Sri Lanka firmly believed in maintaining its strong relations with Switzerland but would request the Swiss authorities to extradite IP Silva because of his involvement in several high profile investigations.

IP Silva was handling several high profile cases including at least 60 crimes committed by the LTTE and the investigation into the assassination of editor Lasantha Wickremetunga and the attack on journalist Keith Noyahr. (JAMILA HUSAIN)

    This is a Swiss conspiracy. GOSL is just waste of time and demeaning itself. If they return Candappa is of no use as their purpose have been served. They wanted their hands on documents Candappa has investigated and the identities of persons..

    Is leaving a country without informing the employer, a crime that warrants extradition?

    Extradite for what crime?

    United States should have extradited when Gotabaya seeker asylum in the states. Gota wants revenge, typical Srilankan mentality filled with vengeance and boasting

    He should be sent back for a complete investigation. Also he needs to explain the reason why he fled.

    Extradition request made because he did not get leave approved? Then what about Arjuna Mahendran who is alleged to be involved in the bond scam. Please don't make us laugh.

    Requesting on extraditing IP Nishantha is just a waste of time. Besides, Swiss will not send him here as there is a threat to his life.

    No need to extradite but Human Rights Organisation should travel to Switzerland to get the Investigation Documents and proof of Atrocities Committed by Gota and Srilankan Authorities and the Army.

    New GOSL need more time to spend for their previous alligations than developing country.
