June 21, 2013 (LBO) – Sri Lanka will look into the possibility of setting up a casino regulator, a government minister said responding to a call by a legislator of the island’s main opposition. “We respect that idea,” information minister Keheliya Rambukwelle told reporters Thursday at a weekly news briefing to announce cabinet decisions.

“Let’s see whether we can do it.

Opposition legislator De Silva told reporters that in countries where casinos were permitted including Australia, had a regulatory body for gaming and their inspectors were present 24 hours inside casinos.

De Silva has also slammed moves by the administration to cut taxes for gaming.
