Meanwhile one of the lawyers who have been retained by SJB Visath Wijegunawardene told a media briefing held at the Opposition Leader’s office today that the proposed Commission under the Port City Commission Bill will have the power to administer the zone under section 3(1) of the legislation, while certain laws including the Inland Revenue Act 24 of 2017, Value added tax Act No 14 of 2002, Finance Act No 11 of 2002, Excise Special Provisions Act 13 of 1989, Customs Ordinance, Betting and Gaming Levy Act, Entertainment Tax Ordinance and Foreign Exchange Act No 12 of 2017, will not be applicable within the zone.
