A man climbed a huge tree in protest to get his wife down from Jordan who is not paid her salary for several months.
The man from Nugathenna, Thunmodara area, at about 11.45pm climbed the tree to protest.
According to Gossiplanka website, the husband of the maid employed in Jordan, has complained to the SLFEB officials several times about his wife’s employer who is not paying her salary and not letting her return to Sri Lanka.
According to him, the plea to repatriate her from Jordan fell on deaf ears.
Unable to resist further, the angry man climbed the tallest tree in the vicinity of the SLFEB in protest. He was screaming at the officials to listen to his plea.
Police officials rushed to the scene and held discussions with the man who continued sitting on the tree branch.
They promised that they would take action regarding his wife.
On that promise the man climbed down the tree ending his protest.
