December 02, 2019

Retired Major Ajith Prasanna has begun a fast near the Swiss embassy demanding that the staff member involved in the alleged abduction is produced before the Police.

Prasanna is also a former local government politician affiliated with the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs yesterday said the CID investigation into the alleged abduction of the Swiss Embassy worker has revealed that sequence of events, presented by the Embassy on behaf of the victim, did not correspond with the actual movements of the victim on the day of the incident.

"While the Embassy had not presented the alleged victim to be interviewed by the law enforcement officials despite their request to do so, based on the information provided by the Swiss Mission on Friday 29 November 2019, the investigation was nevertheless conducted. The Ambassador was presented with clear evidence that the sequence of events and timeline of the alleged incident, as formally presented by the Swiss Mission on behalf of the alleged victim to the CID, did not in any way correspond with the actual movements of the alleged victim on that date, as borne out by witness interviews and technical evidence, including Uber records, CCTV footage, telephone records and the GPS data," the government statement said.
