COLOMBO (News1st): The government has dismissed allegations levelled against the Colombo Port City Economic Commission Bill, co-cabinet spokesperson Keheliya Rambukwella said.

“The Attorney General has officially informed us that the bill falls in line with the country’s constitution,” Rambukwella noted.

He pointed out that the Port City is a mechanism to attract investments as a solution, to deal with issues concerning foreign currency revenue and the depreciation of the rupee.

State Minister Ajith Nivard Cabraal identified Port City as a project that would create 83,000 jobs and serve as a turning point for the country’s progress.

“They say that the police will have no control over this. If an offence even such as pickpocketing takes place in Port City, it is our police that will carry out investigations,” state minister.
