The Foreign Ministry's Consular Division is studying the manner in which the Sri Lankan Government could intervene with regard to the arrest of a Sri Lankan youth over the allegation that he paid obeisance to Lord Buddha while in Saudi Arabia.

A Sri Lankan youth engaged in domestic employment in Saudi Arabia had
been recently arrested according to Sharia Law.

Meanwhile the Bodu Bala Sena organisation convened a media briefing yesterday in Colombo.

The mother and the wife of the youth who is imprisoned in Saudi Arabia were also present at the briefing.

The wife of the youth stated that although they sought the assistance of the foreign employment bureau for the past 2 months there was no favourable reply.

The mother of the youth also expressed her views.
