At a press conference of the  Sri Lanka Freedom Party  convened in Colombo on Friday,  journalists asked questioned on the status of the investigation regarding the alleged assault on Dr. Chris Nonis.

Minister of External Affairs, Professor G.L.Peiris said:

[quote]No. The High Commissioner was assaulted and this is a separate issue. Evidence should prove this. Individuals who were present at the venue have filed their reports. If we are to take action against someone, there needs to be evidence. But you are jumping into conclusions. You speak of non-career diplomatic appointments. Is Dr. Chris Nonis not a political appointment? Some who were appointed in this manner are serving very effectively. [/quote]
