The Excise Department yesterday raided four Night Clubs in Kollupitiya, Bambalapitiya and Thimbirigasyaya where they were allegedly selling liquor on Poya Day, Spokesman Prabath Jayawickrema said.

He said these night clubs were found to have violated the Excise Law.

Excise Inspector Lalith Dissanayake said the Night Club owners were liable to be fined by the Excise Department Commissioner General. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    Hey guys go down to Unawatuna and observe how the restaurants there serve alcohol on poya days. It is going business as usual regardless of what the days is about.

    Well done keep it up do not bow down to pressure. Politicians involved in this racket will try to corner you. Be brave and stand firm.

    I agree wtih Suq. Whats the point in restaurants and night clubs raided on poya and other main religious holidays when the tyrants are full of business two/three days before and these people who buy from the tyrants sell openly on poya days for a higher black market price. Also why raid only in Colombo please go out of colombo too start by cleaning up the sacred city of Anuradhapura from alcohol and prostitution on a holy day like poya.

    Only four restaurants were raided? what a joke, there are mushroom like restaurants all over Sri Lanka, who do this type of dirty businesses.

    Consumption of alcohol is higher on Poya days than regular days as people got nothing to do as only a handful go to temple the others revel on alcohol. Hypocrites, Hypocrites everywhere we know even the big big shots take refuge under alcohol after the customary TV shoot-out for the gullible.

    One country one law, well done.

    Ishan Friday, 26 April 2013 08:35 AM

    well done keep it up

    Suq Madique Friday, 26 April 2013 08:43 AM

    Anyway this law is a big sham and must be scrapped. Abstaining should be a choice of the individual and not forced upon them. All it does is increase sales before Poya and others make a buck selling it illegally.

    ANTON Friday, 26 April 2013 08:47 AM

    DO THEY THINK THAT PEOPLE GO TO NIGHT CLUBS TO OBSERVE SIL.

    Sammy Saturday, 27 April 2013 03:15 AM

    Those owners with political connections will get away.

    rathne Friday, 26 April 2013 09:11 AM

    well said Anton.
