The Former 3rd Secretary of the Sri Lankan Embassy in Oman faces allegations of sexual misconduct towards Sri Lankan women stranded in Oman, and held at the embassy safe-house.
Sources said that detectives from the CID are interrogating the suspect at the Bandaranaike International Airport.
Multiple Sri Lankan women who are currently held at the safe-house operated by the Sri Lankan Embassy in Oman allege that the suspect made unwanted sexual advances towards them, and also threatened them of a longer stay in Oman, without sending them back home.
Most of these women had traveled to Abu Dhabi on a visit visa, and thereafter they were trafficked to Oman, where they were auctioned for sex.
