The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has commenced investigations into the incident regarding the local staffer of the Embassy of Switzerland in Sri Lanka, says Police Spokesperson SSP Ruwan Gunasekara.

The CID will work together with the Colombo Crimes Division (CCD) and CCTV Division in this regard, he said further.

The Police Spokesman stressed that the CID has denied allegations claiming its involvement in the said incident.

In the meantime, Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa said Swiss Embassy is yet to cooperate in the ongoing investigations over the alleged incident on its local staffer being kidnapped and threatened.

He stated this responding to the questions directed by media persons today (29) at the Ministry of City Planning Water Supply and Housing Facilities.

The Prime Minister said despite the staffer in question not recording her statement with the Police yet, investigations would continue on the matter.

The Swiss Embassy has been requested to render its support to identify the persons responsible for the incident, PM Rajapaksa said.
