Police Headquarters yesterday said that they were continuing to track down tourists who are engaged in business activities while possessing a tourist visa.
Police said that such arrests are not targeted on their nationality. A senior police officer said there is a law that the tourists have to obey as well.
“There is a law that they are not able to do business in Sri Lanka while just having a tourist visa,” he said.
Most of such business activities are carried out by Indian and Chinese nationals who enter Sri Lanka in large numbers on a monthly basis. (Supun Dias)
