Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera meets the Chargé d’ Affaires of the Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Colombo

Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera had an urgent meeting today (2nd December 2015) with the Chargé d’ Affaires of the Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Colombo at the Parliament complex to express the concerns of the Government of Sri Lanka on the reported judgment of the Dawadmi Court of Saudi Arabia which states that a Sri Lankan national should be stoned to death on the charge of adultery. Ministers Thalatha Atukorale, A.H.M. Fowzie, the Chairman of the Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment R. K. Obeyesekere and officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs were associated with the Foreign Minister at the meeting.

While seeking the indulgence of the Saudi Government, the three Ministers requested for sympathetic consideration in respect of the accused. 

During the meeting, Minister Samaraweera requested the Chargé d’ Affaires to arrange for him to speak with the Foreign Minister of Saudi Arabia at the earliest to seek clemency for the Sri Lankan national concerned.
