Stop all duty free permits

    The damage done to the Vehicle market and Revenue losses to the Government has already happened.

    JHU MPs permit made a big noise but Tsunami permits and other irregular permits issued by Mr.Jeyaray Fernandopulle is the most questionable.

    I think Govt allow only a maruti cars on duty free permits.This will save govts tax revenue for some extent.

    Mendis in the Diyawanna House has all the data.

    No Ranil has not sold a single.

    He is one of the handful of such persons.

    Agree Percy disposed a few.

    But Thero`s doing this cannot be comprehended.

    That will be the day.

    Ranil has not used or sold his Duty free permits during his 30 year in the parliment.

    No politicians can come close to this guy.

    [The time has now come to cry halt to all this nonsense. Let nobody be given duty free vehicle privileges because they are openly flouted. That would be the best solution]

    Absolutely correct. Go one step further. Punish all the rascals who have abused this privilege and profited.

    Yes, the damage has been done and those without the privileges have suffered. Therefore those who have broken the law must be punished and as for ministers like Fernandopulle who go on national TV and advocate breaking the law.....they should be kicked out for now the whole country knows that they are nothing but lackeys and clowns !

    I think ever since we knew people sold their car permits. Nothing new.

    But this priest guy was the unfortunate one to get caught with his hand inside the cookie jar...
