A young British woman, Kayleigh Fraser, has been unaccounted for since her visa was cancelled on August 15, says the Department of Immigration and Emigration.

Investigation of several possible whereabouts of Fraser yesterday (17) proved to be futile, said Department spokesperson Piumi Bandara.

Once located, Fraser will be sent to a Department-run detention camp, said the spokesperson.

The British woman reported about the Galle Face struggle via Instagram, and her passport was impounded and visa cancelled by the Department following an investigation for having violated visa conditions.

A petition filed by her in the court of appeal against her deportation was rejected on August 16.


Claims of sexual abuse?


Two days ago, she posted a video on social media, alleging sexual-abuse at a hotel in Weligama during her first visit to the island.

A complaint lodged with the police was demanded to be withdrawn and was pressurized to give a letter that no sexual-abuse had taken place, Fraser also charged.


Why her writ petition was rejected


CA judge Sobhitha Rajakaruna rejected her writ petition and refused to issue summons on the respondents - controller of immigration and emigration and the attorney general - on the ground that she had failed to furnish adequate submissions required to take up her appeal.

Previous Supreme Court rulings have established that the controller of immigration and emigration could at his discretion, cancel or terminate visas without citing reasons, the judge opined.

Lawyer Nagananda Kodithuwakku appeared on behalf of the petitioner, while state counsel Amasara Gajadeerra represented the attorney general.

Given below is how Fraser has posted the deportation letter on her Instagram account.
