(Compass) — Unidentified vandals broke into the office of the National Christian Evangelical Alliance of Sri Lanka (NCEASL) over the weekend and ransacked filing cabinets and desks. Intruders apparently forced open the back door of the building sometime during the day on Saturday, July 3, and searched files in haste before strewing them on the floor. NCEASL staff workers say the focus was clearly on documents stored at the office. A small amount of money went missing from a cash box, but expensive equipment such as a video projector, camera and computer accessories were left untouched. The NCEASL believes the Saturday break-in may have been an attempt to find documents relating to its public awareness campaign against a proposed anti-conversion bill known as the “Act for the Protection of Religious Freedom.” An NCEASL advertisement appeared for the first time in the Sri Lanka Daily News on July 3 and could have triggered the raid.
