The passport of a British national who posted about the protests at Galle Face has been seized by the Immigration and Emigration officers yesterday.

The officials visited the house of British national, Kayleigh Fraser and seized her passport reportedly over violation of visa conditions.

Kayleigh Fraser had posted a video on social media showing immigration officers inspecting her passport.

Fraser said on her social media that she received a call from Sri Lankan immigration authorities demanding that she leave the country immediately.

During her interaction with immigration officers, she asks why they are taking her passport. The officers claim that they are questioning whether she has violated her visa.

The officials reportedly informed Fraser that an investigation will be conducted and the passport will be returned.

She was informed to appear at the Immigration and Emigration Department within 7 days to obtain her passport
