The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) yesterday questioned Swiss Embassy employee Garnier Banister Francis aka Sriyalatha for the third day, Dec 10.

Having been in the protective care of the Swiss Embassy, Colombo, Sriyalatha reported to the CID headquarters on Sunday, Dec 08.

On behalf of Sriyalatha, Swiss Ambassador Hanspeter Mock on Nov 27 complained to Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa of the alleged abduction of the staffer on Nov 25.

The police identified the embassy employee as the daughter-in-law of Bevan Perera, who contested the Gampaha District on the UNP ticket at the 2010 parliamentary election.

Sources said that Bevan Perera had switched allegiance to the UNP along with the late Anura Bandaranaike.

Sources said that the police were in the process of verifying her statement. Responding to another query, sources pointed out that Swiss Ambassador Mock’s statement had been proved not factual and the envoy himself told about the outcome. Sources said that her statements were being examined vis-a-vis Ambassador’ Mock’s complaint and the revelations made by the CID following investigations into Swiss complaint.

The Fort Chief Magistrate has prohibited the embassy employee leaving the country till Dec 12.

Meanwhile, UPFA Kalutara District MP Piyal Nishantha de Silva said that MP Dr. Rajitha Senaratne, who claimed that the embassy staffer had been threatened by putting a pistol into her mouth should be questioned.

Authoritative sources told The Island that the inquiry was now primarily focused on the embassy employee in the absence of any evidence to back Ambassador’s Mock’s accusations.

    Swiss comedy drama was staged by the GooandPee aka UNPatriotic_rats party to test the waters; to see if the traitor
    yama palana thieves can flee the country through the airport. Since the Government blocked embassy move for
    the GooandPee woman to flee the country, traitor yama pallan know no point packing bags and turning up at the
    airport. The traitor thieves now know even an ambatteyek from an embassy can’t get them a safe passage. Only
    way for Batalande wa(n)dakaya, mon galaya, kakkussi kata, cham pakaya, bada udin, empty dog aka hisballa,
    church acolytes gonja, xxke harin etc. etc. have no escape route through the airport.
