Sept 14, Colombo: Rohitha Abeygunawardena, Minister of Ports and Shipping inspected the goods decaying and disintegrating for many years in the Bonded Warehouses at the Port of Colombo.

The Customs has taken legal action over various goods brought into the country in violation of import regulations. Since they have not been settled for many years, steps were taken to draw the attention of the Director General of Customs to complete this legal process as soon as possible.

The Minister said that six such warehouses in the Ports Authority premises were inspected today (14) and as they are currently dilapidated and in disrepair, they should be developed and turned into beautiful places as soon as possible.

The Minister was accompanied by the Director General of Customs, the Chairman and Deputy Chairman of the Sri Lanka Ports Authority and a number of Ports and Customs officials.
