The Finance Ministry has ordered the Excise Commissioner to raid a casino owned by Transport Ministry Secretary Dhammika Perera, who is also known as the Casino King.
The Finance Ministry has issued the directive after receiving several complaints that the foreign liquor served to casino players have been illegally imported without paying any duties. Complaints have also stated that some substance has been mixed with the liquor that is served in the casino.
Casino Dhammika has carried out a massive media campaign against Treasury Secretary Dr. P.B. Jayasundera.
