    This may sound news; but actually its customary. Poor souls, face covered.

    Should have done what Colombo Port customs do, and just said it was for expenses.

    How much they would have taken before this bribe. Its good to hear at least some are getting caught. authorities must act to clear these type corrupted officials from government departments.
