    Disgraceful Government. Plundering the poor and feeding the Politicians

    The poor don't buy gold.

    again a return to ad-hoc tax implementation. This is why one cannot do business in Sri Lanka. Mangala says one thing and does another (nothing has changed from the past regimes)

    No wonder no one will import anything into Sri Lanka, or send it here.The taxation is outrageous and applied at random, goods could leave on one tax regime and arrive on another.More than 100% taxes for many items.

    Who needs gold for his ego should pay for it.
