Dec 04, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Foreign Affairs Minister Dinesh Gunawardena said he will ensure that full police protection will be provided to the Swiss Embassy employee, who was allegedly abducted and assaulted by unidentified men, and her family members.
The Minister has requested the victim to give a statement to the police and assist in the investigation.
Earlier the Minister rejected a request made by the Swiss Embassy to fly the victim, who is said to be in deteriorating health due to the attack, to Switzerland for medical treatment.
The Court has barred the victim from traveling overseas until she gives a statement to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID).
Earlier the CID said the information provided by the Embassy on the alleged attack is not corroborated by the evidence gathered by the CID on the movements of the victim on the day of the attack.
The victim has neither given a statement nor lodged a complaint to the police on the attack yet. The Swiss Embassy in Colombo has complained to the Inspector General of Police on behalf of the victim who is said to be traumatized by the incident.
