This was on the requests of MP Athuraliye Rathana Thero and Rear Admiral (Retired) Sarath Weerasekara.

Major (Retired) Ajith Prasanna, this morning, launched a protest fast demanding that the Swiss Embassy staff member involved in the alleged abduction incident be produced to make a statement to the police.
