All liquor shops, bars, taverns and places selling alcohol will be shut from April 12 to 14 on the orders of the Excise Commissioner General.

The sale of liquor has been banned on April 13 and 14 for the Sinhala and Tamil New Year and on April 12 as it is a National Day of Mourning, Excise Spokesman Superintendent Prabath Jayawickrama said.

He added that countrywide excise divisions and stations had been alerted to conduct special operations to apprehend and take legal action against law breakers. (Kurulu Koojana Kariyakarawana)

    This is the new yahapalanaya. Stupidity compounded. Just because you ban the sale of liquor does not guarantee a booze free holiday. All it does is create a greater sale on Saturday and drive the price of black market booze up on the holidays. This is hypocrisy!

    Why is there a license system to sell liquor? what do they archive with the license system?.... is it a business belong only to the politicians and their friends?

    Every nation had tried prohibition one time or another and had never worked except drive it underground or brew it illegally or make the bootleggers wealthy.
