Sri Lanka: "Hunger Strike" against Swiss embassy called off

The hunger strike launched by former provincial councillor Ajith Prasanna opposite the Swiss Embassy in Colombo yesterday (Dec 2) was called off last night.

Prasanna, a retired army major, staged his protest, demanding that the embassy employee should give a statement to police regarding her alleged abduction.

This was after the Swiss Embassy in Colombo, issuing a statement last week said the employee was unable to give a statement due to her "deteriorating health condition".

The hunger strike was called off upon the intervention of parliamentarian Ven Athuraliye Rathana Thero and Rear Admiral (Rtd) Sarath Weerasekara.
