Life threats on the husband whose wife was forcefully aborted in Oman.
The husband of the housemaid who was allegedly forced for an abortion while in the custody of Sri Lankan embassy in Oman requests the authorities to assure safety of his wife.
The husband, a resident of Ampara told our news team he needs the assurance before current Sri Lankan Ambassador to Oman Ashoka Hirihagama returns to the country.
The husband said his wife who went for a job in Oman last January has sexually abused by her master.
Later Foreign Employment Bureau has sheltered her in the camp maintained by the Embassy.
He also charged the officials of the Embassy camp have threatened his wife and forced her to carry out an abortion at a private hospital in Oman.
The disturbed husband has also submitted a petition to the Human Rights Commission requesting the commission to take legal actions against the culprits.
He said he has also received death threats after he exposed the incident.
Meanwhile Sri Lankan Ambassador in Oman Ashoka Girihagama has initiated an investigation on the incident after it was reported to him.
At the same time, certain media reported Ambassador Girihagama has been summoned home prematurely though his tenure is to end next August.
When our news team contacted the External Affairs Ministry also confirmed the premature summoning of the ambassador.
In this backdrop, Airport reporter attached to the Sinhala newspaper Lankadeepa Deepa Adhikari made a complaint to the Gampaha police today against Foreign Employment Bureau Deputy General Manager and Media Spokesman Mangala Randeniya.
In her complaint, Deepa Adhikari stated Foreign Employment Bureau Deputy General Manager and Media Spokesman Mangala Randeniya threatened her for publishing the news about the housemaid who was forced for an abortion in Oman.
When our news team contacted Foreign Employment Bureau Deputy General Manager and Media Spokesman Mangala Randeniya had this to say.
