COLOMBO (News 1st); The Sri Lanka Youth Overseas Federation (SLYOF) has raised concern regarding the 'mistreatment' of Scottish tourist Kayleigh Fraser by Sri Lankan Authorities. 

Issuing a statement, SLYOF says the accusations and investigations placed against Fraser, and intimidation tactics used by immigration authorities raises several concerns, and are unjustified. 

Moreover, the Sri Lanka Youth Overseas Federation has urged the Scottish Government to work on this case and urge the Sri Lankan Government to ensure her safety. 

It also urges the Sri Lankan Government to uphold the rule of law and democratic principals. 

Sri Lanka Youth Overseas Federation announced that it will launch a legal campaign in the UK, endorsed by Deena Tissera, the Scottish labour party councillor for Aberdeen, to bring this matter before the attention of the UK Parliament and to help restore justice to Kayleigh Fraser. 

On August 10th, the Department of Immigration and Emigration  decided to terminate the visa issued to Scottish tourist Kayleigh Fraser, who posted content with regard to the Aragalaya protest on Social Media.

The Department informed her to leave Sri Lanka before the 15th 
of August.

On 12th August, the Scottish tourist filed a writ application with the Court of Appeal seeking an order to invalidate the decision taken by the Department of Immigration and Emigration to deport her from Sri Lanka.
