However, according to the word spreading among the field if James Packer arrives in Sri Lanka Dhammika Perera will fall into status of a ‘Lilliput’.

In the cold war between James Packer and Dhammika Perera the Ministry of Finance is presumed to be favoring Packer. This was revealed in a debate at the parliament yesterday (04).

Siriwardene to the Chairman of the Board of Investment (BoI) which contains information on tax concessions proposed to be offered to James Packer’s Australian company, Crown Ltd.

According to JVP, the government has granted ‘unlimited tax concessions’ for a company from which tax of 40% of its profits must be obtained.
