* Sri Lanka power authority to widen raids on power pirates this year
Sat, Jan 19, 2013, 04:20 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 19, Colombo: Sri Lanka's power authority, the state owned Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) has decided to expand the raids to nab power pirates this year after earning millions as fines from over 3,500 persons engaged in power piracy last year.

The Power and Energy Ministry stated that the CEB Special Investigations Unit had nabbed 3,569 persons involved in power piracy in 2012 and the total revenue from the raids exceeded Rs. 212 million.

The Ministry has added that the raids have resulted in a 50 per cent decline in the percentage of power pirates.

The Unit will focus its attention on power pirating in the redeveloping areas in the North and East, where they observe more incidents of power piracy.
