Conduct A Thorough And Impartial Investigation Into Abducting Swiss Embassy Employee: HRCSL Tells Police

The Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka has urged acting Inspector General of Police to conduct a thorough and impartial investigation into the abduction of an employee of the Swiss Embassy in Colombo.

Dr. Udagama

Writing to the acting IGP CD Wickramaratne, the Chairperson of HRCSL, Dr Deepika Udagama said: “The Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka is deeply concerned by media reports that an employee of a diplomatic mission in Sri Lanka had recently been abducted by a group of unknown persons who had allegedly demanded that she provide them information pertaining to Sri Lankans who have sought protection through that embassy.

“The Commission urgently calls on you to conduct a thorough and impartial investigation into this alarming incident. As you would agree a speedy and impartial investigation into the matter to unearth those responsible is absolutely essential to strengthen public confidence in law enforcement and to dispel public fears,” she said.

Dr. Udugama said: “When the public entertains such fears it has a chilling effect on democratic rights and freedoms. Not only must justice be done on behalf of the young woman who may be traumatised by the abduction, but the larger issue of the need to reassure the public also must be addressed.”

    Impartial investigation??? So far in Srilanka impartial investigation did not happen as far as to my knowledge, particularly during the period after 2005. After the end of war in 2009, there Tamil doctors were arrested and forced to appear to the media and they said no civilians were killed by Srilankan military. Similarly in few days time the Swiss employee may appear in the media and will confirm that he was not abducted.He may on his way he went sick and he was taken to hospital by some one. Who will be prepared to sacrifice his life to tell the truth?

        They have. Have you not read the statement issued by the Swiss Embassy? (Carried on this very site).
        Or do you consider that to be fake in keeping with global trends where anything which does not conform to one’s view is considered ‘fake’? 🙄

      Ajith.
      Yes, what ‘impartial’ investigation? Deepika acts like Pontius Pilot Roman Governor Of Judaea. Washes her hands off all abuses that comes under her purview. She acts like a spokesperson. No action talk only. Always in deep slumber.
      The HRCSL is a defunct Organization. What are the Terms Of Reference Of the Commission and Commissioner? The most ineffective Govt. Organization that supposedly gives unhindered support to very serious offenses.
      A visit to the Premises will confirm the uselessness and inefficiency of this Pompous and Righteous sounding Organization. Applications for violations have to be filled in a format that is insufficient for such abuses and misdeeds. No Counsellor is available for guidance/ assistance for victims who require relief or support for their complaints. Servile Employees in attendance.
      I have personally lodged an Application 2 years ago and not received an acknowledgement of my Application to date.
      Madame Commissioner, Your Comments and observations is more than desirable.

      HRCSL,

      RE: Abduction of Embassy Employee by the Rajapaksa Waffen SS.

      The spokesman for the Rajapaksa Waffen SS says the following:

      The Swiss Ambassador in Sri Lanka has no right to keep a Sri Lankan employee inside the Embassy on the basis that local employees do not enjoy diplomatic privileges, the Pivithuru Hela Urumaya (PHU) said today.

      Its leader, MP Udaya Gammanpila said under Clause 38 (2) of the Vienna Convention, locals employed at embassies do not enjoy diplomatic privileges.

      “The decision on whether the employee should give a statement to the police or not should be decided by the Sri Lankan Government and not the Swiss Ambassador. There have been instances where statements have been recorded from those who have been shot and on the brink of death. The decision is up to the judicial medical officer to decide whether this employee should be questioned,” the MP told a news briefing.

      He said it was not certain whether she was being detained at the Embassy against her wishes or was staying there voluntarily.

      “It seems that the Swiss Ambassador is visualising a white van culture and not the Sri Lankan Government. The latest episode of the white van drama comes to light after being directed by the Swiss Ambassador. He says one of the Embassy employees has been abducted by a white van, she has taken ill now and the matter should be probed. However, the Embassy does not even reveal the name of the employee or allow a statement to be obtained from her but calls for action and an investigation on the matter,” the MP said.

    An abduction and assault, threats and intimidation are all serious criminal acts. The police should and could have arrested the suspects and revealed their identity by now if no political hand was involved. On the other hand, if there was a sudden scramble to conceal the incident and the suspects are still at large, and the police are “clueless” it smacks of political interference with law enforcement. In resolving crimes involving ordinary people, the police are usually very quick to bring the criminals to book. Not so, when “higher authorities” have a hand to play. A fair justice system with honest police work are the only recourse available to ensure justice for the citizens of a country. If that is subject to political will, it is a sad indictment on the level of maturity in Sri Lankan society.

      Lasantha,
      Why beat the bush when the whole world knows that this kind of high-profile abduction and illegal interrogation cannot happen without GoRa’s approval. As I keep telling, this can be explained only as a product of an anger management problem (Bipolar Syndrome or GINIPUK GAYA in colloquial Sinhala) b’cos no sensible head of state would ever dare to touch a foreign embassy. I will guarantee that, every time something or someone irritate him, GoRa would behave in this manner. Unfortunately, there is nobody in the whole Gvt who could stop him from going nuts!

        D.P.

        If Nishantha run out of country, how would you come to know that it was a runaway or vocational tour? Let’s say this time you read it in CT; then who assigned you to investigate that matter from a Swiss embassy employee? You always assign the jobs for you, no bosses get involved?

        See here, everybody knows everything. Further Aanduwa knows even that. But Aanduwa knows that people will try to be gentleman, willing to follow Media ethics, polite language……….Aanduwa wants it that way and we many, succumb to that. If we didn’t we too will be given a free transport to 4th Floor on a white van. If you are not working at Swiss embassy, even Deepika, the unemployed one in HRCSL, will not see you.

        Probably, his Defense Secretary Kamal Gunaratne has a hand in it. Considering the way he behaved as the Administrator at Royal Institute threatening parents and children, he seem to think that the entire country is his battle field. Birds of a feather flock together! They are good at brainwashing the masses and are now carrying an effective social media campaign to portray the victim as an absolute liar. According to news filtering in, the lady had a revolver pushed into her mouth and was sexually assaulted. Who wants to come before a cop and lodge a police complaint after such an incident. They have daughters don’t they? What will they do if their daughters or daughters-in-law have to go through the same nightmare?

      But why isn’t the Swiss (cheese) embassy lodging a police complaaint?

      Prof Lasantha Pethiyagoda,

      “An abduction and assault, threats and intimidation are all serious criminal acts. The police should and could have arrested the suspects and revealed their identity by now if no political hand was involved. “

      This is an action of the Rajapaksa Waffen SS, a criminal organization. This is not the only criminal act of the Rajapaksa Waffen SS.

      The Nazis used Christianity. The Rajapaksa Waffen SS is using Para-Sinhala Para-“Buddhism”, that is an insult to the Buddha, and the imbecile Para-saffron clad monks are quiet.

      From the grape vines, ……

      Raided the offices of a news outlet..

      In a separate development that has worried Sri Lankan journalists, the police and plainclothes officers on Monday raided the offices of a news outlet, News Hub, known for its criticism of the Rajapaksa family. Several journalists said they were forced to unlock their computers for them to be examined.

      An associate of the News Hub website, Dhanushka Ramanayake, said in a news conference after the raid that he feared this was the beginning of a dark period for Sri Lanka.

      latest news says the person who was hiding was Tamil woman. When I heard first news about Swiss embassy, I right away thought It could have been a Tamil because Western embassies have been doing this for long time hiring local Tamil spies, giving Tamil refugee status and supporting Tamil terrorist to humiliate Singhalese in front of the world

      Mrs. Bandaranayke was personally anti Western and took revenge from children whose families voted for United National Party and at the same time, her members came to Western countries, especially London and settled down for luxury life. Today, they also, becoming Western agents for convenience.

      As I said, Mr. and Mrs. Bs were processed and brought to power as part of preparation of war. And both Bs were used to attract western public to promote hatred against Sri lanka and get support for Tamil to get citizenships, political support and establish Tamil global government and train Tamil as Spies and eventually undermine Sri lanka. These are also done to Attract Hindus India as their ally. India were hating western countries because they were supporting Pakistan for decades. So, Tamil Tigers war and smuggling Tamil and providing them with all support is also a part of greater trick to calm down Indian anger and turn them become a western ally

      Other well know fact that Western countries acted upon in 1983 is that Indian and Tamil have been very jealousy of Sinhalese becoming independent and powerful nation. Therefore, Blackmailing of Indian was easy based this Indian jealousy fact.

      Whether those votes came from people who had awareness of the issues has some relevance, but that is the weakness of democracy.

      Also, where are the other 34 candidates who had the audacity to contest? I’ve been blasting one of them – Dr Ajanthat Perera on her land and mobile phones. Next, I’ll have to visit her home or Colombo University where she is a Professor. Up to around May 2019, I hadn’t even heard of her. Even now, I have met her only once. The silence of these candidates is deafening.

      This is not good at all very negative publicity Internationally and going to hurt all Srilankans
      That was precisely why this was engineered by the Western Cabal.
      They wanted to give this government a bad name and c reated an incident. They gave a cop refugee status without any qualms, even against the background of the FCID where the telephone call of MS. Wickremasinghe to the Avant Guard Senadhipathi story is well known .

      The Swiss government thought that the present government will yield easily and allow the woman (who alleges to have been abducted) to go away to Helvatica without a further fuss.

      But they got it wrong. This is not the Ranil-Mangala government. The govt. has rightly decided to follow the rules that bind diplomatic missions. If the person is the object of a police investigation the person must be produced, instead of being kept hidden inside the embassy.

      They thought by saying that the person is gravely ill, they can get out of it.
      But NO, that makes it worse. NOW a medical officer MUST examine her! The Swiss are in a diplomatic mess of their own creation.

      For once the Sri Lankan government has shown that the law of the land applies, and that we are not being cowed down because it is the Swiss embassy.

        .
        This Swiss business has got far too much publicity. We can get over it only by correcting ourselves, not by showing that the Swiss have, for a couple of centuries at least, observed double standards in business, banking, and arms dealing. All that may be true. No, it is true.
        .
        Our country was well-placed in 1948. We have steadily eroded since then. It is we who are to blame for 71 years of steady deterioration in all fields. You take even the present storm in a tea-cup (relatively speaking). Can’t you all see that the fault lies here?

        Let Gotabaya Rajapaksa come clean on all issues relating to his 70 years in this world, especially those relating to citizenship. Let Mahinda Deshapriya take responsibility for what looks increasingly as though he has deliberately been covering up for Rajapaksa double talk. Let the Sinhalese commenters stop talking about where Jeevan Hoole hails from and what languages he speaks or doesn’t speak. Let us hear from Nalin Abeysekera.
        .
        Let us put ourselves right first. Go into these niggling matters relating to the Swiss, after we have corrected ourselves.

    The HRCSL is comedy club. There was a Tamil man returned (deported) from Swiss. INGOs protested to Swiss government for deporting. He was arrested and tortured on the FORTH FLOOR. HRCSL refused to talk. A man (ex rebel) was punished to protect Saharan Gang by Yahapalanaya, when his gang murdered two innocent police Officers. Madame refused question the Appe Aanduwa. The poor wife with five children came to street to protest. Police threatened her with gun and arrest and sent her back home. She wanted to commit suicide, not knowing how to feed her children. Neighbors blocked it made her to hold on to her life. It was a bloody shame, Deepika, herself is woman, calling her women activist (WNW), human right activist and HRCSL commissioner, refused to help that woman. At the end Saharan Gang came to rescue her husband by purposefully telling the truth.

    An embassy employee enjoys shadow diplomatic privileges in all countries. If she asks for, she may even get a citizenship in Switzerland, to protect her. Why this comedy club is wasting taxpayers money without purpose. If Lankawe refused to investigate that case, they even may face economic sanctions by West.

    The lady is openly saying that it is a good technique for War Criminal family to investigate Swiss embassy case, to pretend to be caring about human rights. May I know what class these people completed as highest? Trying to save government from its real human rights violations by investigating a high profile case? Is that the gracious job of Human Right Commission of Wildlife Sanctuary SinhaLE Lankawe? Comedy Thamai!

    Madame is a nonsensical person.

    Looks like this is going to get ugbefore the victim gets better.
    -.
    The Lady victim is not a Diplomat.. She has no Diplomatic immunity.
    The Crime was committed on a Street in Lankawe and not in the Embassy Premises.

    Therefore Srilankan Police is the only power which can investigate the Crime.
    And the SLP must have access to the Victim not only to find out what the Crime is , but also what state the Victim is in physically.

    If the Ambassador is shielding the Victim and not allowing the Srilanka Police to carry out its duties . it may come under obstruction of the Police Duties.

    The Talk of the Town is that Adrian Candappa aka Nishantha Silva went for a Holiday with forged Swiss documents which the relevant Diplomatic staff have not sanctioned. putting this Ambassador Bloke ( ? ) in a fix..

      Why forged documents, I am sure his documents were waiting for him at the embassy with the blessing of the Swiss ambassador. As for the victim that no one really knows she too will go through the immigration with a Swiss passport without the slightest problem. This was a false flag operation right from the get go. Now when the NGO’S
      join in with their 5 cents I can say only one thing. “Money talks Bullshit walks”

      When someone takes refuge in a foreign embassy, Sri Lanka police has no power to do anything leave alone questioning. Julian Asange example is clear on this. It is only when Colombian embassy expelled him from the premises, the British police could arrest him. Therefore as long as Swiss embassy says she is not in a state to be questioned, Sri Lanka has to keep its mouth shut. There is a plan to airlift her by helicopter to a safe place for treatment. Pressure will be applied to such a degree that Sri Lanka has to stomach its pride and let it happen, breaking all rules of immigration. Already Nishantha de Silva has given all documents about use of chemical weapons to kill Tamils to Swiss authorities, which he got during investigation of the murder of Prageeth Eknaligoda. Very soon others who are disgruntled with Rajapakse murder gang will give information about other war crimes.

    The self-appointed “Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka” (HRCSL) must learn to write good meaningful English if it is to earn the respect of those who read their press releases.

    As Marshal McLuhan said, the medium is the message. The press release should also be in good Sinhala and Tamil.

    Here we examine the English document, and find it hilarious and unprofessionally drawn up. It shows a lack of careful thought by those who prepared the text.

    The text also shows that the commission does not respect human rights, because an allegation is not true until proven, and hence those who are accused of some crime should be treated as innocent until proven guilty.
    So when you refer to an abduction, well-experienced and law-abiding scribes would refer to an “alleged abduction”, and so on. No such care is found in the wording of the press release, establishing a level of surprising sloppiness.

    The text says:
    “As you would agree a speedy and impartial investigation into the matter to unearth those responsible is absolutely essential “

    So does the HRCSL believe that the alleged culprits have already been buried and now need to be unearthed? Great!

    “When the public entertains such fears it has a chilling effect on democratic rights and freedoms.
    This is a common MISUSE of the word entertains.
    According to most dictionaries , “Entertain” has the definition: If a performer, performance , or activity, thoughts entertains you, it amuses you.
    So the HRCSL thinks that the public is “entertained” by fears! That is, the public is
    made up of a collection of masochists!

    What a hilarious press release.

    Furthermore, when the HRCSL spokesman Udugama refers to “such fears”, those “fears” should have been defined in the text previously. No such fears have been described!

    This for all you Rajapakse haters who have written a lot crap.

    Firstly , None of the Rajapakse’s were punished for all the allegations that were made by the Yahaplanaya although they promised to imprison them prior to the previous presidential election. So since they could not pro e any if the allegations the Rajapakse’s are innocent until pro an guilty. GR and MR is in power now so you can jump up and down as much as you like because they where they belong.

    Secondly how dre8 you guys make all these assumptions and allegations the honourable GR with regards the Swiss embassy incident. The fact that aTamil was involved in this false allegations of abduction and the fact that she was not willing to give statement alone should be clear to guys if you don’t have shit in your brains..

    Finally the majority Sinhalese has voted for GR and the reason for this is because the sinhalese realized that they need to get a leader who won’t lick the white mans A___.
