#childabductors | Swiss embassy employee in Sri Lanka arrested after claiming she was abducted, sexually assaulted and interrogated 

Sri Lankan police arrested a local Swiss embassy employee after she claimed she was abducted by government officials, interrogated and sexually assaulted before being released. 

Calling her claims “fabricated”, authorities arrested her on Monday evening on grounds of “stoking anti-government sentiments and fabricating evidence to be used in a court proceedings.” 

The alleged victim, who works at the embassy’s visa department, claimed she was abducted by CID officials in a white van on November 25, and held for hours, while her abductors sexually abused her and tried to force her to disclose embassy-related information. 

According to the victim, her abductors particularly wanted information about a senior police official, Nishantha Silva, who fled the country seeking asylum in Switzerland soon after Gotabaya Rajapaksa was elected president last month. 

Mr Silva was heading an investigation on the current president on alleged charges of murder, abduction and torture of journalists and civilians who spoke against the government during his time as defence secretary for ten years under his brother Mahinda Rajapaksa’s presidency, until 2015.
