Sri Lanka Customs still on strike
Posted in Local News
The trade union action launched by customs officials continues to take place today as well. Trade unions point out that the action will continue until they receive an appropriate solution.
The Alliance launched a work-to-rule trade union action on Wednesday afternoon to voice their opposition to replacing the Customs Director General P. S. M. Charles with a retired navy commander.
Meanwhile the Finance Ministry announced yesterday that H. G. Sumanasinghe, an additional secretary at the Finance Ministry, had been appointed as the acting director general.
However, Customs trade unions have rejected this move as well and have stated that they do not accept the appointment as it is illegal.

We have to appreciate this brave move. Because you do not need a custom if Big Shots intervene to release this kind of dubious stocks imported! Why Sri Lankan authorities tolerate one ethnic group be above the law! Take Traffic violation, illegal imports, Drugs/narcotic import and distribution, the latest illegal sand mining and assault security forces. Is the Lady Justice now cant even think (be no she is blind folded!).
