COLOMBO (News 1st) – The Sri Lanka Foreign Employment Bureau has informed the Sri Lankan Embassy in Oman to immediately send back E. Kushan, the third secretary of the mission who faced allegations of sexual misconduct towards Sri Lankan women.

SLFEB Spokesperson Gamini Senarath Yapa told News 1st that the Sri Lankan Embassy in Oman is yet to confirm the date when the officer will return to Sri Lanka.

He said the Sri Lanka Foreign Employment Bureau had interdicted the official, and investigations are underway over the allegations made against him.

Sri Lanka Police had also informed the Sri Lanka Foreign Employment Bureau to produce the official to the Criminal Investigations Department as well.

News 1st for several days has highlighted how Sri Lankan women were trafficked from Sri Lanka to Oman via Abu Dhabi to be auctioned and sold as sex slaves.

On Wednesday (23), News 1st received a letter purportedly sent to Sri Lankan officials by a woman held at the safe-house operated by the Sri Lankan Embassy in Oman claiming that the third secretary of the mission was making unwanted advanced towards women.

The five-page letter noted that the official in question had repeatedly committed sexual abuse towards Sri Lankan women.

E. Kushan, the former third secretary of the Sri Lankan Embassy in Oman dismissed the allegations made against him the letter noting that the woman who claimed that women who become helpless make up such stories to get a quick trip back to Sri Lanka.
