The Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority (SLTDA) today said that it would launch a mobile registration campaign to register hoteliers in Mirissa this week.

The SLTDA said the registration will be done according to the provisions of the SLTDA Act and said a team of SLTDA officials would visit the hoteliers.

A spokesman from the SLTDA told Daily Mirror that for those who failed to meet standards of regulatory process due to justifiable reasons, temporary registration can be obtained.

He said the SLTDA would collect the hoteliers data and create a data base and immediate license would be given for those who posses a valid trade license with clear financial statements.

Meanwhile, the SLTDA said it would seek legal advises from the Attorney General’s Department regarding the hoteliers who are unable to fulfill the SLTDA requirements.

The SLTDA said it would individually attend to those cases and review their facilities before registering them with the authority.

The SLTDA strictly implemented and enforced the regulations over the hoteliers after a group of Dutch tourists  were assaulted in Mirissa on April 8.

Minister of Tourism Development and Christian Religious Affairs John Amaratunga raised concerns of the tourists security and instructed the officials to regulate the registration process of the hoteliers in Mirissa following the tragic incident. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    After all the fire and fury, total surrender of duties by SLTDA and CCD. We just doubled the number of elected politicians. This is the result. You will see more in the future!

    This is the presidential solution. Build more unauthorised structures in the beach. Power greed has no limits.

    Comply with the registration means legalization of the illegal establishment. If the hotel, bar or the restaurant is build without a building permit approving for such operation, the registration shall not be given. If the structure it is situated on state land without a lease agreement and or payments receipts to the local authority as the lease payment for the entire operational period the structures shall be removed at the operators expense and a court order shall be issued for recovery of payments. Any interference from any minister also shall be notify to the public via the news media. So we the public can send those public figures home come next elections who are detrimental to a civilized society.
