Swiss embassy staffer ordered to report to CID every month

The court has ordered the Swiss Embassy employee to report to the Crime investigation Department(CID) on the last Sunday of every month.

The Swiss Embassy employee who was allegedly abducted was granted bail by the Colombo Magistrate’s Court on the 30 of December last year.

The Attorney General had ordered the CID to pronounce the Swiss Embassy employee as a suspect for a case of exciting disaffection against the Government and fabricating false evidence to be used in a future judicial proceeding.

Accordingly, the Swiss employee was arrested on 16 December by the CID and produced before the Colombo Chief Magistrate’s Court.

The victim was under remand custody until she was bailed out on the 30 of December.

The Swiss Embassy staffer had claimed she was abducted, harassed and questioned by an unidentified group on the 25 of November.
