Colombo (News 1st): The Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka has called on Acting Inspector General of Police C.D. Wickremeratne to conduct a thorough and impartial investigation, into the incident where an employee of the Switzerland Embassy was abducted.

Writing a letter to the Acting IGP, the HRCSL said 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.

The letter read “When the public entertains such fears it has a chilling effect on democratic rights and freedom.”

The letter signed by Chairman of HRCSL Dr. Deepika Udugama, concluded saying “Not only must justice be done on behalf of the young woman who may be traumatized by the abduction, but the larger issue of the need to reassure the public also must be addressed.”
