Harry Potter flies into Sri Lanka again in July and with local bookshops already on a publicity blast, no VIP arrival could be under tighter security.

“Only eight importers, that have done business with Bloomsbury before, can get the books. And that is also only one week before the release date of July 16,” says Shan Rajagura, CEO, Inscript Pvt Ltd – the Sri Lankan agent for Harry Potter publisher Bloomsbury.

Local importers are also bound by an agreement that Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, will not be released to the local market before Saturday, July 16.
