    So there are ministers who draw their salaries and perks funded by the public and presidential commissions to do the work the ministers are supposed to go also drawing salaries and perks funded by the public . So all that's happening is the public working and funding a government that cannot work .

    Customs is flawed because some people with power pressure customs officers or bribe them to let what they want in, our public money should be spent on prosecuting corrupt officials and stamping out corruption in the government, I'd be glad if tax money was spent on that

    Corruption is all around SriLanka but the Customs and the Police rank in the very top. At least this President is trying to do something .

    This is called the government of commissions. No action but commissions.
