Does this Gazette mean Customs officers have to bribed more than now to export these products?
Also, the Politicians who can make a call to Customs maybe are cheaper to bribe.
Dear Ravi , In a country where bribery in a way is endorsed as a way of life by the majority , it is absolutely futile to attempt to eradicate totally or even to focus it to public discussion. Government has made a start.
Let us give them a fifty fifty chance.
Only people who will feel the pinch wiil be Gama mahattaya and gama hamine from Gamage dara
I was reading the Transparency International Report on corruption in Sri Lanka.
A majority of the population in Sri lanka accept corruption as a way of life and have no qualms in parting with buckshees in getting things done.
The best we could do is to reduce the wages in public sector by 75% and legalise corruption by fixing fees payable by the public for services rendererd by public servants including police, armed forces, GA, DRO, Grama Sevaka, clerks etc and Ministry Secretaries.
