Colombo Magistrate Orders Seized Luxury Vehicles to be Handed Over to Customs

June 15, Colombo (LNW): The Colombo Magistrate’s Court has directed that five luxury vehicles, previously seized by the Bribery Commission, be handed over to Sri Lanka Customs. These vehicles were found to have been imported using false information submitted to the Department of Motor Traffic.

Investigations by the Bribery Commission revealed that the government lost approximately Rs. 300 million in tax revenue due to the illegal importation of these vehicles, which are estimated to be worth around Rs. 600 million.

The vehicles were initially taken into custody by the Bribery Commission based on court orders issued during the investigation.

Colombo Chief Magistrate Thilina Gamage has now ordered the transfer of these vehicles to Sri Lanka Customs for further investigation, following the presentation of facts by the Bribery Commission.
