Travel ban on Swiss Embassy staffer further extended

The Colombo Magistrates Court has extended the travel ban on the Swiss Embassy employee till the 17 December.

Initially the ban was imposed till 9 December after which it was extended till 13 December.

In addition, the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) informed courts that the Swiss embassy staffer has been called before the Department to record an additional statement.

This would be the fourth time the Swiss embassy employee appears before the CID to record a statement.

The employee had claimed that she was kidnapped on 25 November while leaving the office and was asked about a CID officer who fled to Switzerland.

She had also claimed that she was sexually assaulted after being kidnapped.

The Government however said that some of her claims had not corroborated with the evidence unearthed during initial investigations. (Colombo Gazette)
