Hey hey! Don't close the only bar on mount beach which sells liquor on poya day. Registered means they have to comply.

Don't worry. The Outhorities are only half awakened. When the next incident happens he will ask the rest of the hoteliers to register. So far it is effective in Marissa only. And the guy who operated the said joint where this sad incident happened will register and will be back in business.
