Abducting Swiss Embassy Employee: Official Statement By The Embassy Of Switzerland

On 25 November 2019, a serious security incident involving a local employee of the Embassy of Switzerland in Colombo occurred. The employee was detained against their will in the street, forced to get into a car, seriously threatened at length by unidentified men and forced in order to disclose embassy-related information.

Several false pieces of information are circulating in the reporting of this incident. The Swiss Embassy in Colombo is issuing the following clarifications:

1. The Swiss Embassy immediately lodged a formal complaint and is fully cooperating with the Sri Lanka authorities in order to support police investigation and initiate an inquiry over the case, while duly considering the health condition of the victim and their relatives.

2. Due to a deteriorating health condition, the victim is currently not in a state to testify.

3. It has been alleged that the Swiss government rejected a request for the extradition of an employee of the Sri Lankan Criminal Investigation Department (CID) and his family. No such request has been submitted.

          God is a phenomenon, and just a belief to comfort the People. Be them in the US or africa, so called god beloved People are the ones who faced disspointments by birth of in the Course of life. ‘I also felt this after my mother is no longer there that there should be something behind our human life. But the truth as itis, if People are capable of Performing well be it politics, Medicine, or other Areas, People succeed. But people s efforts should be made properly. Knowing all these some do it Right, while others not. UNPrs did not do it in the grass root Level, and they reaped it as a result. JVPrs did do Nothing …. and the results reflect it. Yakage haetiyata wimanaya goda naegiima ( you have to build the Palace according to the Devils). . And hoodwinking and any form of abusive culture can easily be applied where fools are dominated. Entirtey of developing Folks on this brutal planet face it again and again.

        What kind of a stupid thing to say is that? this isn’t the west, you can’t blame everything on religion and say that’s why we are here. The politicians with there own personal agendas are the reason the country is at this state. Plus, you can look at all the countries that have god in them in the middle east and you can see how having god isn’t as good when you also have al-quaeda and other groups around. It’s a good thing we Sri Lankans don’t believe in a single abrahamic god.

        Going by the JAMAL KHASHOGGI incident where the Journalist was draged away and dismembered with the Saudi arabian embassy, itself, .. I think RAajapakshe barbarians to set free that SWISS embassy employee is somewhat harmless. How come ? Rajakashes are Born barbarians going by the last phases of war and how they worsened it in the post war Scenario with dozens of journos and any other dissidents. Not forgetting the manner they murdreed that Young Boy who was one time national champian for Rugby, the manner how they murdered him and planted in a car on the left side of the front seats showing he did not drive the car in that Moment, and all is becoming clear that dismembered Body parts found by the examiners in the labs, … ann the entire Story. ‘I think world should bomb down TODAY s srilanken president and his goons. Then only we can see that a GOD is existing.

Politially immatured ballige putha Rajapkshe would have no idea About the consequences of the loans taken from India, so was the case with his gentical brother Mahinda. All These men would not do it properly th emanner UNP did it with external Affairs.

      Christopher,
      The statement from the Swiss embassy clearly contradicts MaRa’s version. 1. MaRa said that there was not a formal complain to investigate but the embassy say that they lodged a complain immediately. 2. MaRa said that the embassy is not cooperating by not allowing to talk to the victim but the embassy say that the victim is in a deeply distressed state.

      No matter what MaRa says, this type of high-profile abduction & illegal interrogation cannot happen without the approval of GoRa and therefore both MaRa & GoRa definitely knows all the details. I don’t expect any legal action over this incident. This fits the usual arrogance of GoRa. “Bipolar Syndrome” is in action sooner than I thought!

        Members of Tamil diaspora in UK, Canada and Europe have to be careful. There may be Israeli type of assassination of Tamil activists. Tamils in these countries must be vigilant about new appointees to Sri Lanka embassies in these countries, who may have been given diplomatic postings to carry out these. Tamil activists should not go into Sri Lanka embassies in these countries when invited for discussions. It will not be surprising for Tamil demonstrators outside embassies being fired upon by snipers from inside the embassy, like what happened outside Libyan embassy in UK.

    This incident is bound to have serious ramifications for Sri Lanka at the next UNHCR hearing and the country’s dealings with the EU. This is is so sensitive a matter and the government must come clean on this double quick, if its to avoid losing credibility in the eyes of the international community, which has been losing faith in the country’s ability to protect the fundamental rights of its citizens. The new President must ensure that security apparatus is revamped in a way that they operate within the law, held accountable for their actions in a court of law where they are in breach of it and are not given any space to revert to their pre 2015 ways, if the country is to progress as promised during his election campaigns.

      “The new President must ensure that security apparatus is revamped in a way that they operate within the law”
      This guy has been kicked out of three regiments during his time with the army and finally had to leave the army after begging for mercy. He is not fit enough to organize a ‘piss-up in a brewery’ even, let alone re-vamping the army. Please don’t insult the patriotic soldiers who fought with no fear till the end, when this covered traitor abandoned them.

    The presidential election was held in 16th November and President Rajapakse became president and Mahinda Rajapakse became PM. After this former CID head disappeared and President told that he must be going to UNHCR. Present government accused the CID for investigating the crimes committed against the regime that was in power during the period 2010-2015. No one can deny about the white van abductions, murder during that period. The current PM assured for proper investigation but the public know what happened to those famous abductions and murders of Lasantha, THayavudeen, Raviraj, Vice Chancellor Raveendranath etc. Is it starting of White van era again? It is the people choice . So we have to accept this and continue with it for how long?

        dONT SAY like that, we saw how ballige putha was defeated in 2015.

        Current Situation is more crucial with EXTERNAL Affairs. That could only be solved by RW and CBK. Nobody else. Even Sajith could not manage it. At the time, 52-day fake GOVT removed Mr Wickramasinghe the manner he was sacked was highly protested by BRTISH parliament – taking the side of Mr Wickramasinghe. All These we cant Forget. ‘
        Just paying a visit to India, but being isolated to the WESTERN Nations or America, we cant achive anything. ‘
        We will even more Closer then to CHINESE Dragons, who have been making every efforts searching STUPID Leaders in developing countries. They create Situations in developing Folks, such as that of UGANDA- the cake is decorated with icing, but inside is ” shit”. Uganda is the Country made by CHINESE today with the highest INFLATION rates (52%). They have sophisticated dreaming City infrastructure, but they are left to be emptier. Jouros report it as ” ghost cities “
        Their only target is to grab more funds for their surivivals. In that trick, they invest in developing world and tied them so that their future will be safe by the installments (huge huge) being chained to them.

    Gota went back to his white van story, as he knows only this play. He is not playing with the dumb Buddhist, but the Swiss he forgot, Swiss are so clever, they are the only country not belonging to the UN, but have all the UN meetings in Geneva.And Gota being investigated for the 40000 Tamil deaths by ICC, will have more weight with this employees abduction. let’s face it, the average Buddhist intellect is 79. Swiss intellect avg is 120. We know where the stories going.Gota will have to get ready for his time in jail.

          Major,
          Bus is now gone. No options left than wait for the next. But I have lost my hopes for the next few years since this a long process. Even if their mothers would have been raped and murdered, some would not change their mindset. I really dont know why ?#
          So JVPrs and UNPrs could do lot more within the chances People (6.2 mio) gave them in 2015.# 8 mio or more in this Country are there, that would never respect Rajapakshe ballige puthas. However, this Country, and Nation are one of the easily vunerable Folks. ‘That was the reasons them to stand against that ” yatharoopa” programe started to make Aware the People that there is a world beyond lanken territories.
          However, all astrologists (parasites of the Society), some politicians and even some University educated but personalities of Nalin De Silvaor the like with Professor titles stood against ” improvement of awareness of the People”. #
          As Prof. Dewasiri once added in a public Forum telecasted by a locat TV channel – People would take longer to be open for open discussions in a heterogenous but stupid dominated Country such as ours.

        listen, Gotabaya the political Teenager was raped by HINDIAN leader Modi during the 3 day visits. So Gotabaya should seek therapies for a sooner recovery. That trip was highly advantageous to HINDIANs sending the message across the world that Srilankens would not go after the chinese but for srilankens, an another step, recalling PEACE keeping Forces sent to us in mid 80ties. Remember ?# Gotabaya is very like politically not matured to get on with world Leaders. He could just be good enough to do some work in Colombo beautification or the like…. actually that could be done by any low Level army officer.. to that manner, by beating even street beggars to death.

Not a single word came from his usual nature, yet after Gotler became president. ‘All is now becoming clear, that we are marching to an another ZIMBABWIAN style totalitarian Regime this time even being servile to Indians. ‘
        May also be paving ways, Chinese and Indians to go for a war on our cost. Wait and see, now the bugger, and his brother who got caught by CHINESE debt trap has openly criicised SIRIANA govt s lease of Hambantota Harbor to Chinese, but not a single word is uttered what better Options ballige putha Rajaakshe et al may have. ‘-

      This looks a stage play. Now the victim says she is not fit to give a statement. Without the
      cooperation of the victim no one can investigate into the incident. Let her recover and give a statement to Police in front of the embassy official. This should happen inside the embassy. Otherwise we have to say that this is LTTE diaspora attempt to discredit the Govt.

      Most of them are like if they are asked to eat PUNNAKKU for their three meals, would do without questioning. People are naive and gullible. They have no idea about lanken politics. They have been instrumental as human Shield also in this election. :

He has betrayed his prof. title. In the aftermath not a single press men even questioned it… dont you see it ?

      And also dont Forget that HAKKEDIYA man abused the Nation (for his hakkgediya for such a Long time) for such a Long time, his customers were not only poor gullible but also Colombo rich men and ballige putha Rajakashe Family too… hey guys what have you been Talking.

          Swiss, German, French and other european nations would work together cornering Ballige putha Rajakahe led Groups inthe near future. If they harmed an employee in Swiss embassy there they cut their neck by own. ‘:
          This is what we have never heard by RW lead govt. ‘
          All is good and shaped by their tactics being played in UNHRC sessions. This time, that Sarath weerasekara the man, being sent to GENIVA by the barbaric Forces, representing lanken barbarism, will have to face it.

      In the west, an employee has to go at least two weeks off duty even after a minor accident (Health & Safety reasons). The smallest shock during an incident is proven to be serious enough, that the effect on individual’s nervous system makes that person’s cognitive power deteriorate. It is difficult for an ignorant person to grasp, specially one who is blinkered (a Jarapassa SLAVE).

    Not even 14 days have passed by in this once peaceful isle now a miserable cesspit thanks to the antics of the sitting/shitting on their brains Sinhalese who have lived up to their aptly earned reputation – Sinhalayo modaiyo kawun Kanda yodayo. [ Translated into English it means – the Sinhala clan are nothing but the worlds greatest fools and they are only good at ravishing into kawuns their national food delicacy, which they greedily tuck into as if that’s their last meal on this planet. ]
    An innocent fair lady a local an employee of the Embassy of Switzerland one of the best calm peaceful nations on this planet for one to live in at this moment of turmoil which presently tormenting the world that we abode in.
    None of the most important court jesters in this present corrupt beyond one’s imagination mutts of a president and his team of inept cabinet ministers are as usual conveniently stupidly attempting to lay an accusing finger on this docile embassy.
    The said employee must be going through hell after being unceremoniously accosted into a white van, accosted by male armed hoodlums close to her home and had been given the once only privilege of being driven around and around the mulberry bush.
    Thankfully she is living to tell her sad tale of unwanted abduction.
    I know the feeling after being arrested and was about to be taken into all because I was born as a proud Tamil and these acts made me flee the country.
    This week a website critical of the resentfulness was unceremoniously raided into with a year old warrant, warnings have been published in this now tamed media who are now shivering in their boots media not to be nasty to the uncouth unrefined family who is at present shitting on the royal commode.

      “born as a proud Tamil and these acts made me flee the country”

      You do realize that statement contradicts itself right. Oh wait, you have your nose so far up your ass about being a part of a race that shouldn’t have any pride that there’s possibly no way of you being wrong.

        Hello Gnana,
        The time for intervention is over. That was when LTTE was active and India violated our sovereignty by dropping food.
        This is a sovereign government elected by a resounding majority.
        Sri Lankans will never hide under beds – Sri Lankans fought a war and won it and will fight again if necessary.

          What were your brave heart Ranavirus including Gota, Kamal, Shavendra, …. and the hundred of thousands of smart patriot doing when Hindian planes violated the airspace of this island?

          It was the psychopath VP who salvaged your sovereignty (whatever that maybe) after 500 years, kicking the Hindians out of the island while all your smart patriots were hiding behind women folks.

          ” Sri Lankans fought a war and won it and will fight again if necessary.”

          Of course it won the war but not the peace, it will not until its long suffering people undergo en mass therapy for paranoia. By the way the war and three elections were won by VP for MR & GR, massively helped by Hindia, US, Europe, ….

          One aspect of Hindian domestic policy that you stupid racists forget is that Hindians dictate this island as the Sinhala state of Hindia and Sultanate of New Delhi act accordingly.

            Dear Sunil Ariyaratne, with your IQ of 79 naturally you are unable to come to terms with reality. If you think India intervened only because LTTE was active, and since now there is no leverage for intervention there will not be any, then you are sadly mistaken. India will continue to intervene in Sri Lanka till eternity. It was told in sarcastic way to JR, that only way to stop India intervening in Sri Lanka, is to tow Sri Lanka away from India towards Australia. Ask Gota and his cabal to treat the letter sent by Modi as a gentle warning. You cannot play the fool with BJP like the pussy footing congress. Stop boasting about “Sri Lankans will fight again if necessary”, and comply with the order. There is a Tamil saying “If a strong man bullies a weak man, then God will bully the strong man”, and this is exactly what is happening to Sri Lanka for harassing Tamils.

      ” we cannot permit foreign intervention of any type. we have a strong president now.”

      I envy your selective memory.
      When IPKF invaded this island, occupied this island between
      July 1987 and March 1990 killing, looting raping scores of women, what was he doing to protect them? Instead of protecting the land and people he was engaged in running dead squads in the south. Then of course America was the haven for many war criminals, and he chose to become an American, an still he is.

      His brother and notorious crook was championing human rights in Geneva this war criminal was either killing innocent people in the south or hiding behind women folks from IPKF.

      What do you mean by strong president.
      This man and his family employed saffron brigade to campaign to establish the most overtly racist government and elected ruthless national hangman as president. You find tokenism among the ministers.

      The strong president who made silly offensive statement against Hindia at least twice in the past 3 years now has visited Sultanate of New Delhi, tucking his lost (in 1987) and found (in 2005) b***s between his legs when he was summoned by Hindians.

      The Hindians know the reason why he agreed to visit Sultanate of New Delhi immediately after the his coronation, hence they did not return him empty handed. Modi offered him a $550 million credit facility, knowing full well most of it will reach his family fortunes.

      What a strong leader he is?

    The details of this alleged abduction are sketchy. If, even during President R. Premadasa times, Scotland Yard assistance was sought for the investigation into the death of Lalith Athulathmudali then I see no reason to do something similar. Of course as a sovereign nation , Sri Lanka has a sense of pride and for starters let investigative issues be commenced by the Sri Lankan authorities. A sovereign country such as Switzerland need not offer an explanation as to why it granted and the party that granted a Schengen Visa to anyone whether it is a visit visa or an asylum visa. There seems to be a big variation in Foreign Ministry statements and that of the Swiss Embassy. Although people tend to portray that describing the full name of the police officer concerned as Adrian Nishantha Silva Candappa as racial, the fact remains that it is his name. One need not do all kinds of jugglery to distort one’s name and should be proud of the name and other social classifications where he or she is so called. In doing so alone, destroys one’s credibility even in the professional duties. There seems to be so many dimensions in this story. Amongst all that I am disappointed that Inspector A. N. S. Candappa failed to proceed to a conclusion on the high profile investigations he handled such as Lasantha and Wassim and the Attorney General who inspected the files observed that the details are incomplete.

      Good Sense

      “Inspector A. N. S. Candappa failed to proceed to a conclusion on the high profile investigations he handled such as Lasantha and Wassim and the Attorney General who inspected the files observed that the details are incomplete.”

      Don’t you remember Hopper Sirisena was p****d off when he heard Gota and his fellow crooks in uniform were summoned by the courts and said Ranviru should not be punished even if they had committed crimes such as raping his wife, mother, daughters, grandmas, grand daughters or Dhaham.

      There is no way any self respecting honest officers of the state could go against the long established norms of licking boots, being their b***s trashed, ………. hence need to escape, … it is natural for self preservation.

    This is a serious business, no doubt.
    .
    Why did this happen? Because the Detective who was investigating the most high profile crimes fled to Switzerland with his family.
    .
    Why did he flee? Because a man accused of many crimes, and whose citizenship of any and all countries on Planet Earth is in question, was elected President of the Democratic Socialist, etc Sri Lanka.
    .
    How did a man with so many issues hanging over him become President? The Elections Commission of Sri Lanka did not inquire into his Citizenship
    .
    How do we know that the Elections Commission acted so irresponsibly? One Member of the 3-member Elections Commission has spilt the beans.

    Will this Professor Hoole be the next guy “to be disappeared” in a white van? Yes, That is a fear that 80% of Sri Lankans harbour.

    Is Hoole a brave man? Obviously. Amazingly so.
    .
    But Gota got lots of votes, didn’t he? Yes, he certainly did. Let me tell you how this happened.

    Sri Lankans believe firmly that any politician once he gets power, turns corrupt. Even if he was scrupulously clean before election.

      For instance if he left with some of the evidence, then there could be trouble.
      .
      However let me advise you as a fellow wellwisher for our country, this government will not be as bad as you and I maybe thinking, so please pipe down.

      If Pujitha and Hemasiri could be taken to task for not doing their duty resulting in murder and mayhem in the churches and hotels, why can’t the election commissioner Mahinda be similarly dealt with for failing n his duty to ascertain the dual citizenship issue, which was in the air for over a couple of months prior to the election? Does Hool too appear to have been rather cool through fear of white van?

      Dont call them as sinhalaya. They are just un educated People who never thought twice but got caught by the tricks being applied by the barbarians – they only wanted to come to power and continue where they stopped. ‘
      Now even social media men have been caught by some sort of self censored mechanisms, due to the fears for such abductions. Ballige puthas will abuse their power. Our People majority should learn it. I think i dont mind even this wave would rise up to abuse the legal married wife of Wimal buruwanse or his daughter.

    Swiss are the most corrupt people on earth. They were the bankers to the Nazis, hoarded all the valuable paintings and gold stolen by the Nazis from unfortunate Jewish people who were gassed to death in Auschwitz, Birkenau and Treblinka. Swiss are still paying compensation to Jewish victims, as they should.

    Swiss are world famous for nameless bank accounts which hoard all the ill gotten gains from drug dealers, tax evaders, money stolen from countries by their corrupt leaders and individuals throughout the whole world. And they give this squeaky clean image to world, when all they have done is to hide their dirt under the carpet.

    They clearly conspired against the newly elected government in Sri Lanka by having Nishantha Silva and family squirreled away in quick time, so that Nishantha can dish out the dirt in Geneva. It must have been planned for some time.

    Western countries with LTTE diaspora like to destroy Sri Lanka so that they can get Tamil block vote and enjoy all perks at the expense of poor long suffering Sri Lankan’s. None of these leaders from Western Democracies give damn about the Sri Lankan’s.

      However, after that you lose objectivity. I’m not saying that analysing our Sri Lankan faults is easy. the proof of it is how much all of us have to agonise over it. The LTTE has to be blamed for much – but who began it all? That is by no means an easy question to answer.

    The Swiss Embassy has to respect and accept Lankan criminal Justice of accuses having allegation against Police officers . Let this police officer has back to Island for fair investigation by Swiss Embassy as soon as possible.
    We do NOT that wanted Police State is encouraging and promoted by previous govt. of UNP regime of violated murders cases support by Swiss Embassy .Which that violated by Police Criminals. ….of previous regime.

    The Swiss Embassy has no right to STOP that proceed murders by granting police office Silva Chndappa and family by he name of that so-called “human Rights” violations . This will be created bad reputations for Image of that credibility of Swiss authorities and its citizens.

    Be fair for impartial investigation of that we seek for the Police Officer of Nishan Silva Chappdapa who flee to Swiss by granting Visa status of Swiss authorities. Police Officer that allegation of investigation of so murder many cases documents has in secretly taken by Police Office of Chaddapa of Silva.
    All inquire that depend of facts before Justice system of our judiciary which has to respected by Embassy of Swiss….officials.

Then as Eagle always says he must be working for “koti diaspora’ trying to tarnish our blessed island. It can be Swiss ,Swedish or what ever , as long they are in Lanka, every Lankan has the right to kidnap. That is why we let the Royal Park Guy out to guide those foreigners who visit us.

    See how things are managed by the disciplined government. First SB told press they do not know anything about the kidnap incident. Once the accusation became public knowledge MR gave stern statement assuring to the needful. . Then Govt demands the victim to appear in public ??? I guess to intimidate further . What else ???? it can be. A victim out of no where was kidnapped by strangers is now fortunate to live and tell her story and MR Govt is desperate to make her identity public . Then MR denied getting any report or complaints from the embassy/victim. Now the complaint is made public. So MR followed by accusing the Swiss of not cooperating. What is expected next ???? there is no such person existed in Lanka and it is a Swiss conspiracy to tarnish our blessed nation.

    Well sovereignty of colonialism of British and Swiss European civilization born out of that capitalism of in that blood and sweat of conquered and billions of People of Asian nations…including Sri lanka..
    The Swiss of country has to recognized “human rights” and” sovereignty” of all
    Sri lankan and their freedom of sovereignty as a universal projects to be realization through practice.
    That should be demarcate by Political -Terrorism of that from majority people democracies of recent mandate which that excluding UNP+TNA-LTTE theorist ,JVP anarchist-Terrorist and Islam terrorist.
    Well to do Swiss authorities not taken “Human Rights” not by Utopian vein. ..by granting safe house Andared Nishan Silva Chaddpa and his family. ..who were police-men engaged of covering of murders investigation by real culprits during his UNP regime in power.
    Needless to say this policemen of Chddapa of Silva of Nishan is apply state terrorist by covered operation make unjust for victims of lost their life who ever in power regardless at that time.

    We demand for that FAIR TRIAL in Swiss land or Sri Lanka….against Nisah Silva Cadappa as quick as possible .
    Do not look at political point of view “colonial sovereignty” of Swiss State that against Sovereignty of Island Republic of Sri lanka.
    Our choice is democratic mandate of majority of sovereignty that is choice between democracy rights and terrorism in Sri lanka.

      Please define and explain sovereignty and relate it to this island.
      What is sovereignty in Sri Lankan context?
      What does it bring to people?.
      Where did Sri Lanka get it from?

    How the embassy has acted in this case is highly unprofessional and obviously raises the question whether they have done this drama to deliberately tarnish the Sri Lanka’s image. It is very sad to see such behaviour from a foreign diplomatic team. They should have followed the proper path and given full support to the officials to investigate the case before going into international media. The excuses given here are not acceptable and looks like childish. If they don’t provide the full support for the investigations immediately, it’s clear that this was staged by them and related to the previous unethical approach they had taken to send the police officer to their country. Shame on Swiss government.

    OMG, you are correct Roshan, lots of stupid people around us, and at the Swiss embassy, what do they take the Sri Lankans for? Monkeys? Today the CID releases its data to the Swiss embassy, showing that the “victim”s whereabouts according to Uber hires, phone GPS and CCTV footage do not match the “victim’s” story or the narrative that Swiss embassy is trying to build. This is plain harassment of a country. And as for you illogical CT article worshipers I pity you.
