Minister of Tourism Prasanna Ranatunga has instructed the Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority to conduct a comprehensive investigation into an incident of an American tourist who arrived in Sri Lanka turning back owing to being inconvenienced.
The tourist who arrived in Sri Lanka on the 7th of October had left the country within five hours of arrival as he could not arrange transport and could not contact his travel agency.
The tourist’s statement is being widely circulated on social media.
Accordingly, Minister Ranatunga instructed the Chairman of the SLTDA to conduct a comprehensive investigation and submit a report.
The Authority said an investigation is being carried out at present.
